Earlier today, I reported that Gretchen Carlson is not the only Fox News woman to claim to have been sexually harassed by Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. Now, CNN’s Brian Stelter has reported that 10 more women have contacted Carlson’s lawyers with similar complaints.
On CNN today, Stelter said the following:
STELTER: This is a story that could have big ramifications for Fox News because Ailes has been in charge ever since it launched. You could say he rules the network with an iron fist. And he is beloved by a lot of staffers there, but he is not known for being politically correct. And I do wonder, if in the days and weeks to come, we’ll hear from other women who might corroborate Carlson’s story. In fact, I just spoke with one of the attorneys involved in Carlson’s suit. They say that ten women have called the law firm today, wanting to speak with the law firm because they say they also have stories to share about treatment by Roger Ailes. I want to be careful with that though because that doesn’t mean they are alleging anything, any wrongdoing, and they’re not suing, Right now it is only Carlson who is suing.
Yes, right now, it is only Carlson who is suing. But whether or not other women come forward to back up or contradict Carlson could make a big difference as to Ailes’ future.

Truman if that’s true everyone of them must have slapped the shit out of him, cuz he’s uglier than a hat full of assholes.
Scientologist/Surgical Freakshown/Suck-up Queen Greta excepted, every regular female guest or host is just so obviously selected and instructed according to guidelines any self-respecting woman, rabid right-winger or not, should be repulsed by. I would have sympathy for the likes of Wretched Gretchen if it were not for the fact that she had happily been an instrument of possibly THE most insidious propaganda machine since the days of Herr Goebbels.
Hmmmm,…I wonder what Clint Eastwood is doing these days?
