CNN Anchor Comes Forward – Claims She Was Sexually Harassed at Fox

Yet another woman is coming forward and accusing Roger Ailes of sexual harassment. I have no idea if it is true, but I find the claims suspect. Not that I doubt that Ailes is a dirty old man… I’m pretty convinced he is. But Alisyn Camerota waited a very long time to come forward and she’s an anchor with CNN now. It feels almost scripted. The left is fueling this witch hunt at Fox News and they just keep on pushing it. Camerota is claiming that because she didn’t push the ‘conservative’ line, that Ailes would reprimand her. She claims he also came on to her. Now, she’s praising the Murdoch boys. What a coincidence… not.

For what it is worth, Ailes and his attorney are vehemently denying these allegations. Camerota worked at Fox for more than a decade as a reporter and weekend anchor, so she interacted with Ailes extensively. In 2014 she moved from Fox to CNN. And the Clinton News Network is playing this up for all it is worth. It’s disgusting. This is bad: “Let me be clear,” she said in the interview. “Roger Ailes was — could be charming. He could be quite charismatic. He could be uproariously funny. He could also be a bit of a bully, and mean. And he also was often kind of grossly inappropriate with things that he would say, and I think that many of us experienced that. He would talk about body parts. He would say ‘Give me a spin.’ He would want to be greeted with a hug.”

From CNN:

For a long time Alisyn Camerota was reluctant to describe the dark side of working at Fox News.

She respects many of her former colleagues. She has close friends who work there. But she perceives that something has changed now that the channel’s CEO Roger Ailes and biggest star Bill O’Reilly have been ousted by the Murdoch family.

“It feels as though, if I take the Murdochs at their word, they really want to know what was wrong there and what the culture was like,” Camerota said.

And there was something profoundly wrong. In an interview on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Camerota said publicly for the first time that she was one of Ailes’ targets.

“Yes, Roger Ailes did sexually harass me,” Camerota said.

Other prominent Fox anchors and reporters have made similar charges. Ailes resigned under pressure last July after another longtime anchor, Gretchen Carlson, sued him and the Murdochs retained an outside law firm to investigate the allegations.

Another accuser, Fox contributor Julie Roginsky, filed suit against Ailes and Fox News earlier this month. Through his lawyers, Ailes has strongly denied all of the allegations.

On Sunday an attorney for Ailes, Susan Estrich, denied Camerota’s account.

And this is much worse: “But the time that I remember most,” she said, “was when I was first starting out at Fox and I was single, and I remember Roger, being in Roger’s office, and I was saying that I wanted more opportunity. He said ‘Well, I would have to work with you. I would have to work with you on that case. I would have to work with you really closely, and it may require us getting to know each other better, and that might have to happen away from here, and it might have to happen at a hotel. Do you know what I’m saying?’ And I said ‘Yeah, I think I do know what you’re saying.'” She says she turned him down. I don’t know about you, but it all seems just a little too scripted, a little too pat for my tastes.

She didn’t tell anyone at the time because she said she was embarrassed and humiliated. Really? She claims she feared she would be fired for saying no. She says after she turned Ailes down, that he started bullying her over her less than conservative stance on the news. If that doesn’t sound like a load of liberal BS, I don’t know what does. Camerota claims that Ailes ruled with an iron fist. “He said ‘there is no other side.’ In Roger’s world view, there was no other side. Liberals were always wrong, conservatives were generally right, and that’s what he felt that we should be reflecting on the air.” And again, I highly doubt that. If that were true, he would have fired the likes of Shepard Smith and Geraldo Rivera long ago. At least Camerota is saying that O’Reilly never harassed her, but I’m still not buying what she’s selling here.
