Fox News: Ex-host Andrea Tantaros is a ‘wannabe’ sexual harassment victim

Published

on

Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros sued her former employer last week over sexual assault allegations — and now Fox News has fired back.

Via CNN’s Brian Stelter, Fox filed a response to Tantaros’s lawsuit this week claiming that she had all the characteristics of a “wannabe” sexual harassment victim who’s suing just to make a quick buck.

“Tantaros’s unverified complaint of August 22 bears all the hallmarks of the ‘wannabe,'” the network charged in its response. “She claims now that she too was victimized by Roger Ailes when, in fact, contrary to her pleading, she never complained of any such conduct in the course of an investigation months ago.”

Fox’s response also slammed Tantaros for being an “opportunist” who was fired from the company back in April for allegedly writing an “unauthorized” book that breached the terms of her contract.

In the lawsuit filed last week, Tantaros’s attorneys claimed that Fox News “operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny.”

According to the suit, 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.

The suit then alleged 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 alleged that she “encountered hostility from the Fox News publicity department.”

She and co-host Joy Behar were arguing over Trump supporters when McCain blew up.

“Being the sacrificial Republican every day,” she said. “I’m just trying to — don’t feel bad for me, bitch. I’m paid to do this, okay? Don’t feel bad for me.”

Florida Republicans concoct a new scheme to make it harder for students to vote

Published

on

Florida Republicans do not want to make voting easy for college students — a demographic that leans heavily Democratic.

Former GOP Secretary of State Ken Detzner, an appointee of Gov. Rick Scott, took that to the extreme in 2014, with an order banning county election officials from setting up any early voting sites on college campuses. Last year, following a lawsuit by the League of Women Voters, federal District Judge Mark Walker struck down that order as an unconstitutional burden on students' voting rights. As a result, some 60,000 people were able to vote early on 11 college campuses in Florida in 2018.

Trump flips out over ‘RIGGED’ hearings as Democrats grill Hope Hicks

Published

on

President Donald Trump ranted on Twitter while his former communications director testified before the House Judiciary Committee.

Hope Hicks complied with a congressional subpoena and testified behind closed doors to the Democrat-led panel, and the president raged online as word leaked out that a White House lawyer was objecting to many of the questions about her government service.

"The Dems are very unhappy with the Mueller Report, so after almost 3 years, they want a Redo, or Do Over. This is extreme Presidential Harassment," Trump tweeted. "They gave Crooked Hillary’s people complete Immunity, yet now they bring back Hope Hicks."
