“Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny,” the Times quoted Tantaros’ lawsuit — Ailes paid out $millions in hush money to silence employees

Andrea Tantaros Files Suit: Fox News ‘Sex-Fueled, Playboy Mansion-Like Cult’

Former anchor Andrea Tantaros has filed a lawsuit against Fox News Channel, asserting retaliation for lodging sexual harassment claims against former chairman Roger Ailes, The New York Times reported.

The Tantaros lawsuit, filed in Manhattan state Supreme Court Monday, also claims she was harassed by other executives at the network.

“Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny,” the Times quoted Tantaros’ lawsuit.

Ailes resigned last month in the wake of several allegations that began with former morning anchor Gretchen Carlson’s lawsuit, claiming the Fox News chief demanded sex to improve her standing at the network.

According to published reports, some two dozen Fox News staff have since claimed harassment issues, including star host Megyn Kelly.

The Times last week also reported that Ailes paid out millions in hush money to silence employees who complained about sexual harassment.

New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman has detailed the case of former Fox event booker Laurie Luhn, who claimed a 20-year period of “psychological torture” working for Ailes, who she said had liaisons with her at swanky New York hotel rooms.
