Former Fox News anchor babe (read: teleprompter reader) Gretchen Carlson was the first to file suit against Fox News honcho Roger Ailes for sexual harassment. Only after she was fired, of course. AWD is not saying I don’t believe her. But I don’t believe her.
Now the premier Fox News anti-Trump talking head has come forward to say she too was sexually harassed by Ailes. Megyn Kelly told investigators she too was sexually harassed by Ailes. Ten years ago. Kelly was apparently so traumatized it took her ten years, a multi-million dollar contract, and a prime-time show on Fox to report it. Does anyone find it interesting that Kelly waited ten years and only when she is negotiating a new contract to throw Ailes under the bus?
AWD has been to Memphis a few times and has seen in his extensive career how many women have ruined the careers of good men by luring them into situations they later would claim were sexual harassment. When it fit their agenda.
This isn’t the 50’s and 60’s when you could grab a woman in the crotch while she was filing and get away with it. Now men are accused of sexual harassment because they told a female associate he liked her dress. Or he grabbed her in the crotch.
But if Megyn Kelly is going to claim sexual harassment against her boss, she should have to explain why she didn’t complain immediately after said sexual harassment occurred ten years ago.
Oh, she was climbing the ladder to further her career. But this is not to say that Kelly wouldn’t use her looks to make it to the top!
And why did Gretchen Carlson also wait until she was fired to complain against the “advancements” against Ailes? Oh, it was because she was fired. And pissed. And we all know the danger of close proximity with a pissed woman.
There are women who bait their bosses with sexually-related topics. I’ve always believed most of these vipers hold the sexually-related conversations as insurance should their jobs one day be in jeopardy. Sometimes they even wait ten years and their contracts are up for renewal.
This is what the workplace has become. AWD once attended a conference where sexual harassment was the topic. The one thing I remember from the speaker was this: “Before you tell a joke or say something to a female associate, ask yourself this…..how will this sound before the judge.”
So forgive me when I call bulls*t on Gretchen and Megyn. If they were truly offended by Aile’s sexual advances (if they indeed occurred), why wait until they were fired or were in contract negotiations?
AWD has had some experience with TV news types. Most are the most conniving, self-absorbed rattlesnakes you’ll ever meet. And the vast majority will do anything, ANYTHING, to advance their careers.
If you’re a man you should be very careful about what you say and do in the presence of female associates. Your career and means to make a living could be at stake because you trusted a rattlesnake who will burn you the first chance she gets.
AWD once worked for a large corporation where an attractive sales rep chased and had an affair with the CEO. When he broke off the affair, she sued the company for sexual harassment. This girl was a slut and was well-known in her industry for selling a lot of contracts with her ‘skills.’ She settled for a large sum and the CEO lost his job. This woman lured a middle-aged executive into their relationship and then burned him when it suited her needs. I’m not saying he was right to have an affair with her but it was far, far from sexual harassment. She simply slept her way up the career ladder and ended up with a large check. He got fired.
My guess is the same happened with Ailes in the cases of Carlson and Kelly. Rattlesnakes.
