And another one.
With the departure of Fox News ratings killer Bill O’Reilly from the broadcast news network after being accused by a large number of women whom claimed they were sexually harassed by the news anchor, even back to last year when former Fox News chairman Robert Ailes was called out for doing the same thing to many of the female staff members, it’s starting to look like a Fox News cultural thing as another top male Fox Newser, Sean Hannity is being accused of inviting former contributor Debbie Schlussel to his hotel.
While Fox News defends Hannity in his claims that the accusations are false, you really can’t help but to wonder, as there seems to be a slight pattern of these men in power using that power to lure or bait the women in their office into do or die tactics.
Schlussel said that although it didn’t get as far as the actual act(s) of sexual harassment, she believes it was bait to get her in position, and when she refused his invitation, she was no longer welcomed back to his show. In an interview conducted today with LawNewz.com, she said, “He tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine treated me horribly.”
Now why would anyone want to go back to your hotel after you treated them badly?
If they wanted to offer an apology, they could have done that right in the studio.
And if one invite wasn’t insulting enough, Schlussel said that she was invited another time to his hotel following one of Hannity’s book signings. She revealed that she was yelled at after refusing him a second time, as she said, “I wasn’t booked on his show again, and he called me and yelled at me,” Schlussel said. “It was made clear to me that I didn’t go back to his hotel with him after. I got a very weird feeling about the whole thing, and we kind of knew I wouldn’t be back on his show.”
Fox News and Hannity have negated all claims made, but I’m not sure why they would say otherwise.
Bringing me back to Bill Cosby’s accusers, and how quickly the media was ready to condemn him, especially those guys at Fox News; here we go, and the tables are totally turning on their beloveds, how quickly are they to dismiss the cries of these women. It wasn’t until the list was too big before they axed Ailes and Hannity, for they just couldn’t handle all the media pressure; I’m sure both men would probably still be there.
We wouldn’t be surprised to learn later that a list is now quietly being compiled of all Hannity victims to come out of the woodworks. We will just have to stay tuned.
