Liberals believe destroying Fox News is key to defeating Donald Trump in 2020.
After two years of coming up empty, Fox News critics think they finally found their silver bullet.
And now a terrible sex scandal at Fox News took one unbelievable turn for the worse.
Investigative journalist Ronan Farrow has been out promoting his new book “Catch and Kill” where he describes his reporting on sexual misconduct allegations against powerful men.
Farrow broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior in the fall of 2017 that kicked off the “Me Too” movement.
In one interview promoting the book Farrow compared NBC covering up for Matt Lauer and spiking his story on Weinstein to Fox News who ordered an investigation into sexual harassment allegations against former network President Roger Ailes that led to Ailes’ dismissal.
This comment did not sit well with Juliet Huddy, Julie Roginsky and Tamara Holder – three women that settled sexual harassment claims against Fox – who proceeded to fire off a letter accusing Farrow of minimizing the scandal at Fox.
“While we appreciate the work you have done to expose and explore sexual assault, harassment and retaliation in the news and entertainment industries, we are curious as to the basis of your effusive praise of Fox News for its response to the revelations by women who described the toxic work environment they faced,” the three women wrote.
“Shouldn’t you be publicly calling for these companies to waive such provisions before reporting that progress is being made? Shouldn’t you be investigating why women who had flourishing careers at major networks before speaking up about harassment, assault or retaliation now find themselves unable to work in the industry again?” the letter also stated.
In a statement to CNN, Farrow quickly apologized.
“Let me be clear: I in no way intended to suggest that networks like Fox have fully addressed these issues,” Farrow explained. “One of the lessons of the past few years is that there’s still a long way to go. I’ve heard what these women have said and join with them in the hopes that people in power are listening…. I’m sorry if my comments implied anything else — it certainly wasn’t my intention.”
But that was just the beginning of Fox News’ woes.
Vanity Fair reported that six women that signed non-disclosures with Fox as part of their settlements demanded to be released from those agreements so they could speak freely about their allegations.
This is the fake and corrupt news media’s dream.
Fake news CNN and MSNBC would immediately grant these women a platform to trash Fox News.
Most so-called “journalists” don’t care about these women or their claims.
What they care about is discrediting Fox News ahead of the 2020 election.
The left thinks Donald Trump won in 2016 because the liberal media lost their stranglehold on the flow of information to the American people.
Taking down Fox News with this sexual harassment scandal is the first step in the left’s scheme to defeat Donald Trump by controlling the news Americans receive about the 2020 election.
