Remember Bill Schulz? He's the former host of Fox News' Red Eye show.
Finally read Esquire/Tantaros piece. Nobody really liked her. BUT? She's also not lying. At all. https://t.co/ysQCp9pkvK— Bill Schulz (@BillSchulz) November 29, 2016
The September, 2016 Esquire article about Tantaros that Schulz just corroborated has some significant information about the collusion between Fox senior management and then-CEO and serial sexual harrasser Roger Ailes:
[Tantaros] also accused Bill Shine, Suzanne Scott, Irena Briganti, and Brandi, all top Fox executives, along with the company itself, of tolerating Ailes's harassment and retaliating against her for her complaints. "Fox News operates as a dictatorship," Tantaros told me recently, in her first extended interview since filing the $49 million suit. At the same time, she said, "Ailes couldn't act by himself. He needed lieutenants. He needed a regime. And so they carried out his orders. They covered up his grotesque misdeeds."
In her complaint, Tantaros claims that while Fox "masquerades as defender of traditional family values," the network operated behind the scenes "like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion–like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny."
As a cohost, Tantaros had been given a burgundy-carpeted office on the seventeenth floor of Fox headquarters. There she kept a small library of foreign-policy books, as well as two racks of what she called her Fox uniform: color-coded tight-fitting dresses and high heels. Nevertheless, she says, even at the start there were some things that threw her off. Twice a year, Fox's wardrobe department held a trunk show with dresses from a variety of designers for its female on-air talent. "In front of a group of women, you are expected to completely disrobe," Tantaros says. "You have no privacy, and they make comments on, you know, your underwear set." She commiserated with some of the other women about the indignity of the event, but the competition for the best dresses kept them coming back.
It would not seem that Schulz was friendly with Tantaros so it's hard to imagine he had inside knowledge about the specifics of the harassment she has alleged. So I'm presuming that he knew of similar experiences such as this:
Other men at Fox didn't make things easy, either. According to Tantaros's complaint, Scott Brown, an Outnumbered guest, came up behind her one day while she was buying lunch and placed his hands on her lower waist. Bill O'Reilly, whom Tantaros once considered a friend, suggested that she had a "wild side" and told her to visit him on Long Island, where it would be "very private." In March of this year, Tantaros mentioned her concerns about Brown, O'Reilly, and two other men in a letter addressed to Dianne Brandi. After her lawyer sent the letter, Tantaros was told she would no longer be appearing on The O'Reilly Factor. (O'Reilly did not respond to a request for comment, and Brown could not be reached. According to the motion filed by Fox, the four men whom Tantaros accused of sexual harassment "vehemently denied it.")
By the way, the article notes that while Ailes is gone, "Shine has been promoted to copresident of the company—he recently signed a new multiyear contract—and Briganti is still in charge of its media-relations department."
The ongoing feud among the Foxies continues. Everyone at this demonic network hate each other.
Next mAnn Coulter will be claiming that (s)he was sexually abused. And I’ll be even less interested.
Her ridiculous analysis and pointed hatred toward the Obama family cancels out any sympathy she may have gotten from sexual harassment she received at Faux.
She took the paychecks, she spouted her venom.
And Bill O’Reilly can’t keep his loufah out of other peoples business even now.
Family values channel my ass!!! More like Playboy’s seedy cousin from the wrong side of the tracks.
