Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson called out one of her previous coworkers for inviting her disgraced ex-colleague Expense O’Reilly to look like a visitor on her brand-new program, despite the fact that he has actually faced a series of claims of sexual harassment
” This is a total wtf minute,” Carlson tweeted Thursday “Discovering @greta who was the very first @foxnews talent to come out versus me after I filed my harassment suit versus Roger Ailes … starts a new celeb-pet TV show … and is giving Bill O’Reilly a platform to be one of her guests.”
Carlson submitted an unwanted sexual advances lawsuit versus Ailes, the late chairman and CEO of the conservative media giant, in July2016 After Carlson spoke up versus Ailes, who was ousted amidst the scandal and died in 2017, Van Susteren rushed to his defense and dismissed the allegations against him. She later reversed course, saying she was sorry for throwing her support behind him.
Fox News consented to pay Carlson $20 million to drop her charges versus Ailes. O’Reilly, for his part, apparently paid $32 million to a former Fox News colleague who threatened to sue him for alleged sexual misbehavior. He was fired only after an examination by the New york city Times exposed formerly secret settlement payments to other O’Reilly accusers. O’Reilly has actually denied all misbehavior.
In tweets Thursday, Carlson asked, “Does [Van Susteren] know that [O’Reilly] is an accused serial predator of women and paid out one … just one … $32 million dollars? This is a disgrace.”
” Why not see if Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose are readily available with their animals too?” Carlson included, referring to the previous “Today Show” host and the ex-PBS host, both of whom have been implicated of sexual harassment. “All this as females who have the nerve to come forward don’t work once again or get asked to be interviewed with their family pets. Offer me a break.”
