Rough day for Fox News

"The Old Boys Network of cable news strikes again. Allegations of sexual harassment, retaliation," summarizes political reporter Rick Dunham of the bombshell lawsuit that Gretchen Carlson just dropped on Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes (and that New York Times story currently at 10,000+ shares already). "Alleged Ailes quote: 'You and I should have had a sexual relationship … and then you’d be good,'" details Charlie Meyerson at Rivet Radio. "Has such a high profile woman ever filed a sexual harassment suit against such a powerful man?" wonders NYT's Jodi Kantor. "Reality impinges on Fox world. A significant moment," concludes freelancer John McQuaid. "Protip: Never do this," recommends Josh Greenman at New York Daily News. In response, Ailes writes, "Gretchen Carlson’s allegations are false ... This is a retaliatory suit for the network’s decision not to renew her contract,” attributing the reasoning to ratings he called “disappointingly low.’’
