Fox news was reportedly caught up in major scandal. The beltway is buzzing after an article from The New Yorker made a big deal out of not much. Fox paid $4 million to an anonymous former employee who accused a co-host on one of the network’s programs of sexual harassment. Kimberly Guilfoyle of “The Five” is the latest target of the left.
Fox news scandal has beltway buzzing
Currently, Kimberly Guilfoyle is dating Donald Trump Jr. and also serves as campaign finance chair for President Trump. The New Yorker accused of sexual harassment. Conveniently, they found out that Fox paid a cool $4 million to settle the claim of a disgruntled ex-employee. Suddenly, it’s become a major scandal. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris plan to pack the supreme court with a bunch of left-leaning justices, so Democrats are desperate to distract attention.
The documents are covered by non disclosure agreements but “six anonymous sources ratted Guilfoyle out, describing how she “would show personal lewd pictures of men, with whom she had sexual relations, to colleagues.” That alone was grounds for termination. Her horrible judgment undeniably did lead to a major scandal. Their lawyers advised the executives to pay the claim. Whether anything else that the woman claimed was true or not, they decided to pay her for what they couldn’t argue over.
The meat of the allegations are also the ones with the least likelihood of being true. One of Guilfoyle’s “female assistants at Fox News sent a 42 page confidential draft complaint to company executives in 2018, which accused Guilfoyle of repeated sexual harassment.” The scandal erupted, as the article highlights, when “Fox News paid an undisclosed sum to the woman, who no longer works for the news channel.” The out of court settlement was around $4 million.
Guilfoyle walked around naked
Unfounded accusations that “the assistant was required to work at Guilfoyle’s New York apartment while Guilfoyle walked around naked” make people gasp, before they realize that it was her apartment. The “victim” was also “forced to listen to her speak about her sex life constantly.” Since that involved Donald Trump Jr., the woman must have been horrified. The most serious charge, or possibly wishful thinking, is that the staffer was “ordered to give the Fox News host thigh massages,” while Guilfoyle was naked.
The scandal deepens as the staffer alleged that Guilfoyle tried to pimp her out, suggesting she “submit” to another “Fox employee’s sexual demands for sexual favors.” The celebrity even allegedly “encouraged her to sleep with wealthy and powerful men, asked her to critique her naked body, demanded that she share a room with her on business trips, required her to sleep over at her apartment, and exposed herself to her, making her feel deeply uncomfortable.”
In response, Ms. Guilfoyle pushed back hard declaring that she has “never engaged in any workplace misconduct of any kind.” Fox News made a decision not to try to fight a losing battle but that doesn’t mean that a single one of the accusations are really true. Still it’s a distracting scandal, just when the dems need it the most.
