The left wants to take down Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
They will use any means at their disposal.
And now Tucker Carlson is fighting to save his job after what this woman accused him of doing.
Cathy Areu – who was a guest on multiple Fox News Channel programs – filed a bombshell lawsuit accusing hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Howard Kurtz of sexual harassment.
Areu’s main accusation against Tucker Carlson was that Carlson propositioned her at a Fox News Channel Christmas party and then refused to book her on his show when she turned down his advances.
Spectator USA’s Amber Athey investigated Areu’s claims and poked major holes in her story.
First, Athey noted that the lawsuit claims Carlson made a pass at Areu by inviting her to his hotel room at a Fox News Christmas party in New York City by pressuring her with the line that his wife was not in town.
Athey noted that the Fox News Christmas party was on December 10, but the last time Areu was on when Carlson hosted a show from New York City was November 30.
“A review of TV clipping service Grabien found that Areu did not even appear on Carlson’s program on December 10, 2018, which was filmed in Washington, DC, not New York City. Carlson was in DC the following night, December 11, as well to attend the annual Daily Caller Christmas party (I attended that party and spoke to Carlson there). In fact, Areu’s only appearance in December 2018 was on the 28th, three days after the Christmas holiday and when the program was guest hosted by Mark Steyn. Carlson made a brief appearance on that show, but was at his DC studio and never appeared on air with Areu,” Athey wrote.
Athey did report that Areu’s lawyer acknowledged bungling the dates, but that Carlson hosted a staff Christmas party on December 10.
However, as Athey notes, Carlson’s wife was with him at the staff Christmas party in New York City.
“The lawyer later admitted during a phone conversation with me that the dates were mixed up due to errors in Areu’s recollection and that the alleged incident did take place on November 30, 2018. The Spectator has learned that the Tucker Carlson Tonight Christmas party for the program’s small staff took place that evening in New York City. Carlson’s wife attended the party. This sits oddly with Areu’s claim that Carlson told her he would not be with his wife and children that evening,” Athey added.
Carlson’s massive ratings and support for President Trump have made him a prime target for the left.
Liberal activists staged advertiser boycotts.
Fake news competitors tried to smear Carlson with guilt by association charges with a former staffer.
And now Carlson is facing a sexual harassment lawsuit brought on by a former guest.
