The sexual harassment lawsuit between former Fox News personality Gretchen Carlson and CEO Roger Ailes has already gotten ugly, with Carlson claiming that her career had been unceremoniously ended after she rebuffed the sexual advances of one of the most powerful men in the media. Ailes almost immediately fired back that Carlson’s suit was retaliatory in nature, and that she was simply getting back at the network for not renewing her contract due to low ratings of Real Story.
While this will no doubt continue to play out in the media over the course of the next several months or possibly years, one thing for sure is that it couldn’t have been easy for Carlson as a woman working for Fox News. One needs to look no further than this supercut from Bloomberg for evidence of that. In the two minute clip, Carlson is time and time again treated condescendingly by her Fox and Friends co-hosts (including Steve Doocy, who was also named in the suit) who make remarks about her appearance and clothing, and generally dismiss her as being inferior.
It may not be evidence that can be used in court, but this is just the sort of thing that’s going to come back and bite Fox News in the ass as this case progresses.
