God, I can't stand Gretchen Carlson. A former
Miss America, she's always looking for even
the hint of sexual harassment. Good riddance
to her, I always hit mute when she came on
anyway. She won't win, it's a ridiculous lawsuit.


I keep quoting this post of Evenbob because it's just funny to me how completely wrong he was.

And notice how Evenbob doesn't post in this thread anymore?

Things like this are probably why:

Quote:
Taking on Ailes was dangerous, but Carlson was determined to fight back. She settled on a simple strategy: She would turn the tables on his surveillance. Beginning in 2014, according to a person familiar with the lawsuit, Carlson brought her iPhone to meetings in Ailes’s office and secretly recorded him saying the kinds of things he’d been saying to her all along. “I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago, and then you’d be good and better and I’d be good and better. Sometimes problems are easier to solve” that way, he said in one conversation. “I’m sure you can do sweet nothings when you want to,” he said another time.

After more than a year of taping, she had captured numerous incidents of sexual harassment.

The Drudge Report is reporting Roger Ailes is officially out at FOX News, and he will receive a $40+ million golden parachute.


LOL:

As the inevitability of an ouster became clear, chaos engulfed Ailes’s team. After news broke on the afternoon of July 19 that Kelly had come forward, Ailes’s lawyer Susan Estrich tried to send Ailes’s denial to Drudge but mistakenly emailed a draft of Ailes’s proposed severance deal, which Drudge, briefly, published instead.

EB often gets things completely wrong
Take the Ebola scare
Ebola is real real hard to get.
EB was doubling and tripling down on Ebola mania saying it spreads very easily

Don't you know you can catch it merely by watching news items about it?
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

There are rumors of a Trump TV after the Orange Clown loses the election. It would be a way to monetize the hordes of supporters in the GOP. That could be the death knell for Fox News in the class struggle outrage business.

Megyn Kelly has come out regarding Ailes

http://radaronline.com/celebrity-news/roger-ailes-sexual-assault-megyn-kelly-fox-news-tell-all-book/

But in January 2006, she claims, he “crossed a new line — trying to grab me repeatedly and kiss me on the lips.” When she shoved him away, she alleges, “he asked me an ominous question: ‘When is your contract up?’ And then, for the third time, he tried to kiss me.”
The harassment ended after six months, possibly because she reported him to a supervisor, Kelly writes. But when Carlson and the other women began to come forward this year, Kelly said she decided the time had come to speak up.

Lets say you work for a large company where sexual harassment is rampant
The best thing you can do for your company is to expose that behavior to protect future talent
Megyn Kelly is doing that
Unless you are Bill O
He believes that the best way to solve sexual harassment in the workplace is to shove it all under the rug
sad
