Fox News A ‘SEX-FUELED Playboy Mansion-Like CULT’ – Andrea Tantaros Lawsuit Accuses O’Reilly, Ailes

 

The New York Times has the pretty awful details alleged in Andrea Tantaros’ lawsuit against Fox News.

Buckle up, hide your kids and hide your wife, because this one is durty, friends:

The suit by Ms. Tantaros, filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, is the latest round in a contentious volley that began in late winter, when Fox claimed she had breached her employment contract by writing a book without receiving network approval.

“Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny,” Ms. Tantaros’s suit says.

Wow. Again, the movie Idiocracy predicts the near future when they thought they were looking at the far future. Tantaros accuses Bill O’Reilly in addition to Ailes of unwanted advances:

During arbitration, Mr. Burstein said, Fox News offered to pay her a sum “in the seven figures” if she renounced claims against Mr. Ailes and others at the network, including the host Bill O’Reilly. According to the lawsuit, Ms. Tantaros said she had been subjected to unwelcome advances from Mr. O’Reilly, whom she had regarded as a friend and adviser.

She also alleges that Fox News has Twitter sock puppet accounts to harass their own employees!

Ms. Tantaros also claimed in the lawsuit that she was the subject of humiliating posts by pseudonymous accounts on Twitter known as “sock puppets” that she says were instigated by the Fox News publicity department.

Makes you wonder what else they use those sock puppet accounts for. I had been researching some rumors about Tantaros and saw a lot of odd tweets about her, but nothing substantive – now I think I was looking at Fox News sock puppets designed to intimidate her and spread vicious rumors.

Mr. Ailes called her back for similar sessions in December 2014 and February 2015, the lawsuit charges, and when she continued to rebuff him, she encountered hostility from the Fox News publicity department. In the February meeting, she said, Mr. Ailes talked about how she would look in a bikini, and accused her of ending a long-term relationship because she had been merely using the man. The episode brought her to tears, the lawsuit states. She said the sole interview arranged by the publicity department during that period was with a writer for a blog controlled by Fox, who asked about her breasts and if she was difficult to work with.

Remember, these are all allegations. They could all be true, or all false, or anywhere in-between. But given how many people have come out of the woodwork to accuse Ailes, and previous sexual harassment allegations against O’Reilly, I’m more inclined to believe Andrea than not…
