A $50 million sexual harassment case against former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes is revealing some not-so-shocking details about the behind-the-scenes culture of the conservative news network — particularly what many have long-suspected as the reason Stacey Dash was hired there.
Andrea Tantaros’ suit includes specific references to the former CEO’s politically incorrect behavior, including calling host Kimberly Guilfoyle a “Puerto Rican whore,” and referring to Dash as “the Black girl.”
Ailes other offensive comments questioned the sexual preferences of host Greg Gutfeld and pundit Dana Perino and referred to other female employees as “fat” and “nuts.” Ailes also allegedly said that employee Harris Faulkner “has the tendency to look like the angry black woman.”
Tantaros’ filed her suit with the New York Supreme Court Monday, and in it she claims that Ailes and host Bill O’Reilly set the tone for the inappropriate workplace culture.
The suit says, “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.”
Ailes resigned from Fox News last month, reportedly walking out with a $40 million severance package.
Is anyone really surprised by any of this?
