Default Roger Ailes and Fox News

Man, it sure is coming out that guy is one of the worst creepers around. I listened to an interview from a non-anonymous woman from the early 1990s who was working as a political consultant. She said that Ailes demanded that she have sex with him and other powerful men, or else. She refused. She was blackballed and her consulting career was over. Ailes' camp's response? Something like that was a different era.

What? The era where you could bully women into sex and blackball the women who refused?

Now reports that the "top" talent at Fox may quit in support of Ailes. that would be so awesome. It reminds of when the MLB umps resigned in protest and their resignations were all accepted. That was some awesome too.

I don't watch the news anymore. Waste of time.

Andrea Tantaros is now accusing him of harrassment.

She made a statement about Fox News that captured my impressions about Fox News when I first learned what it was: They all talk about traditional values, yet they're full of sleazy content.

She's the most attractive political news personality, IMO. Couldn't stand anything coming out of her mouth on Out#. I'd rather just turn the sound off and watch her.

I can't stand Fox News. I don't watch any news anymore. Election night I'll probably watch CNN.

I used to be such a news junkie. I guess when you get older you realize it's a waste of time.

I won't watch election night as I will be back on a plane. Watch a streaming of the BBC to receive more dispassionate coverage.

Same here, except I will try not to watch anything. Also, I will most likely quietly sit in the corner and rock back and forth, trying to convince myself that hillary isn't president.

I am constantly shocked that men believe they are immune and can get away with this sort of behavior.
