‘Are you wearing any panties? I wish you weren’t’: Allegations pile up against Fox boss Roger Ailes

Published

on

Fox News boss Roger Ailes isn’t going down without a fight — but it does appear that he has a massive fight on his hands.

New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman is out with a new report claiming that “at least three” former Fox News anchors are claiming they’ve been harassed by Ailes.

“One former rising star at the network has said that Ailes approached her during a barbecue at Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy’s house in New Jersey while she was bouncing on a trampoline with children and said, ‘Are you wearing any panties? I wish you weren’t,'” Sherman writes. “Another recently departed Fox host has claimed Ailes made her turn around in his office to show him her figure.”

And that’s not all: More women who worked with Ailes during his career as a daytime TV exec have come forward to corroborate other women’s stories of sexual harassment. A 67-year-old former model who worked on The Dennis Wholey Show in the ’60s, for instance, claims that when she was just 19, “Ailes asked her to lift up her skirt and lie facedown on a bed at the Sheraton Gibson Hotel in Cincinnati.”

The entire report is incredibly detailed and cringe-inducing — be sure to check it out at this link.

Update, 7:28 p.m. EST: Fox News responded to the report in a statement emailed to The Raw Story.

“Gabe Sherman continues to conduct a baseless smear campaign in concert with Gretchen Carlson’s lawyer,” the statement read. “Carlson’s contract was not renewed because she was a failure with the audience. Once again, Sherman’s twisted allegations from anonymous sources are completely false.”

‘Stop tweeting about Joe Scarborough’: GOP’s Liz Cheney goes off on Trump after being asked about masks

Published

on

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) on Wednesday broke ranks with President Donald Trump and said he should stop promoting baseless conspiracy theories about MSNBC's Joe Scarborough murdering a staffer 20 years ago.

As reported by Politico's Jake Sherman, Cheney brought up the president's murder conspiracy theories unprompted during an interview with reporters who had originally asked her about wearing face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I do think the president should stop tweeting about Joe Scarborough," she said. "We’re in the middle of a pandemic. He’s the commander in chief of this nation. And it’s causing great pain to the family of the young woman who died."

BUSTED: Trump flack Kayleigh McEnany has voted by mail 11 times in the last 10 years

Published

on

Trump White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany this week echoed President Donald Trump's statements that allowing everyone to vote by mail would result in an unprecedented surge in "voter fraud."

However, a review conducted by the Tampa Bay Times has found that McEnany herself has voted by mail a total of 11 times in the past decade alone.

"In fact, the Tampa native has voted by mail in every Florida election she has participated in since 2010," the Tampa Bay Times has found. "Most recently, she voted by mail in the state’s March 2020 presidential primary, just as Trump did after he made Florida his new permanent home."
