Ailes Attorneys Respond to Harassment Allegations from More Women

Attorneys for Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes have issued a response to a new report with additional sexual harassment allegations against him.

New York Magazine ran a piece today featuring statements from six women––two of whom went on the record––who all recounted allegedly disturbing encounters with Ailes going back to the 80s and 60s.

Ailes’ attorneys provided this statement to CNN in response, saying that Gretchen Carlson is desperately trying to litigate her case in the court of public opinion:

Carlson’s lawyer had been approached this week by reportedly up to 10 women with similar allegations.
