‘A sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult’: Ex-host Andrea Tantaros sues ‘indecent’ Fox News

Published

Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros has filed a lawsuit against her old employer that alleges she was demoted after complaining about sexual harassment.

UPDATE: Former Fox co-host Andrea Tantaros claims ex-Sen. Scott Brown groped her in cafeteria

As reported by the New York Times, Tantaros’s trouble at Fox began when former CEO Roger Ailes called her into his office and asked her to stand up and turn around so he could get “a good look” at her. She refused to do so and, shortly afterward, she was demoted from her role as co-host of The Five to a show with lower ratings.

But it doesn’t end there — the suit alleges Ailes called her back into his office at least two other times and again attempted to get “a good look” at her. When she again refused, she alleges that she “encountered hostility from the Fox News publicity department.”

“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,” the suit alleges.

Tantaros was pulled by Fox from hosting the show Outnumbered this past April over what it claimed were breaches in her contract. Tantaros’s lawsuit, however, claims that this was done in retaliation for complaining about Ailes’s sexual harassment.

Republican Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana is the latest to admit that what President Donald Trump has done was wrong, but he still won't vote to kick the president out of office.

Speaking to Fox News congressional reporter Chad Pergram, Braun made his conclusions after the House spent a little over one day making their case. No witnesses have been called nor has evidence been subpoenaed from the White House. But Braun already agrees Trump is guilty of what the House is accusing him.

"Where I am coming from, is that, probably the discussion of all of this wasn't appropriate, it's obviously gotten the president into an entanglement," he said. "It is just not impeachable. And the sentences either you're gone. You don't get off. You know, for probation."

Conservatives are finally waking up to the fact that Republican tax plans hurt them: columnist

Published

on

Washington Post columnist Henry Olsen thinks that conservatives are finally waking up to the idea that the Republican's tax policies don't benefit the bottom line for their families.

It has been 16 years since Thomas Frank published his book What's the Matter with Kansas, which makes the case that Republicans consistently vote against their own economic interest because they're distracted by issues like LGBT equality and abortion. Since then, Republicans have continued to push tax plans that support the "trickle-down economics" theory that giving huge tax benefits to the top percent of wage earners and to corporations.

Mitch McConnell rigged the impeachment trial in a way that traps GOP lawmakers into backing Trump: columnist

Published

on

Writing for the Washington Post, Paul Waldman explained that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made it nearly impossible for anyone in his caucus to vote in defiance of President Donald Trump and still hope to have any future in politics.

While it has been a given that multiple Republican lawmakers are under the gun because they represent so-called "swing states," Waldman said that states are less likely to flip back and forth in future elections because the battleline between Democrats and Republicans have hardened under Trump.
