Fox Contributor Suggests MSNBC’s Katy Tur Slept Her Way to Her Position in Tweetstorm

katy-tureditedIn a tweetstorm Friday, Fox News contributor Richard Grenell went after MSNBC’s Katy Tur over what he felt was her biased reporting on the recent WikiLeaks email dumps. He also suggested that Tur only got her position due to her relationship with former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann.

The former Romney spokesperson used a tweet from Tur’s highlighting the breaking story that Gloria Allred is bringing forth another Donald Trump sexual assault accuser to bring up how she was ignoring the real story of the day.

After Tur clapped back with her own tweet, Grenell then said it was “offensive” for her to call herself a journalist and brought up Olbermann.

Tur had a one-word response for Grenell (which he retweeted).

Grenell then sent a number of tweets defending his position, stating it wasn’t sexist and that he was merely calling out phony reporting and journalism.

Women in the media had some harsh words for Grenell over what they saw as a misogynistic attack on Tur.

Tur and Olbermann used to date years ago. As Mediaite reported in 2010, the two broke up in 2009.
