New Bombshell Sexual Harassment Allegations Against Roger Ailes

Aug 1, 2016  •  Post A Comment

For more than 20 years, former boss Roger Ailes sexually harassed and “psychologically tortured” a former booker for Fox News, according to allegations published in New York Magazine. The bombshell allegations by Laurie Luhn appear in an in-depth report by Gabriel Sherman, author of the 2014 Fox News expose “The Loudest Voice in the Room: How the Brilliant, Bombastic Roger Ailes Built Fox News — and Divided a Country.”

Sherman reports that Luhn revealed her allegations in a call placed the morning after Ailes resigned, to attorneys investigating sexual-harassment claims against Ailes. According to Sherman, Luhn told them that Ailes harassed her for more than 20 years, that executives at the cable channel knew about it and that they helped cover it up.

Unlike most of the women who have gone public with their complaints about Ailes, Luhn reportedly gave in to his advances. “This is the account of a woman who chose to go along with what Roger Ailes wanted — because he was powerful, because she thought he could help her advance her career, because she was professionally adrift and emotionally unmoored,” Sherman writes.

  1. For all of Roger’s flaws, and there are many. Fox News did not divide the country. It gave voice to segment of the population that was not being heard. You can agree or disagree with the politics of the Right; but they do have a right to be heard and have a legitimate platform. The constitution provides the right of free speech. That is why even Dogs have their own channel.

  2. “For more than 20 years, former boss Roger Ailes sexually harassed and “psychologically tortured” a former booker for Fox News…” “Unlike most of the women who have gone public with their complaints about Ailes, Luhn reportedly gave in to his advances.” If she give into his advances, I would think that would have a different term than “sexually harassed”.

  3. The cash grabbers and anyone who ever got a negative review now pile on.
