Andrea Tantaros has named more Fox News executives in her sexual harassment case, including Bill O’Reilly. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.
From UltraViolet in the USA:
The details of the lawsuit are nauseating. O’Reilly tried to lure Tantaros into his home and kept asking her to show him her “wild side.”
There’s more: Tantaros revealed that the brand new CEO, Bill Shine, knew that O’Reilly and Ailes harassed her but told her to shut up about it.
Fox News is once again dealing with a public relations nightmare. We can push them to get rid of O’Reilly and Shine–like we pushed them to fire Ailes–if enough of us speak out.2 Will you add your name?

Tantaros points out that Ailes did not act alone. She named several male Fox News contributors in addition to O’Reilly and Ailes and claimed executives helped cover the abuse up. Every top Fox News executive she came forward to ignored her complaints–and took her off the air.3
When former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes was slapped with a lawsuit, 50,000 UltraViolet members spoke out and successfully forced Fox to get rid of him. Now, with another lawsuit naming Bill O’Reilly, who hosts the most popular show on Fox News, and new CEO Bill Shine, who was very carefully chosen to replace Ailes following the scandal, Fox is once again dragged into the spotlight for endangering women in the workplace.
A few weeks back, UltraViolet members forced Ailes out of Fox News when it came to light he has harassed countless women while he was CEO. Getting rid of Ailes was a crucial step in stopping sexist abuse at Fox. But sexual harassment at Fox News won’t stop until everyone who participated and covered it up is held accountable–and we can make sure of that if we all speak out again.
