The lawsuit also alleges Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Howard Kurtz and Gianno Caldwell engaged in inappropriate and suggestive behavior.
As part of the complaint, Areu, who made hundreds of appearances on Fox News programs as a commentator, alleges that Fox News “strung [her] along as a candidate for a full time position, all while she was being sexually harassed and retaliated against.”
She alleges that Henry “sent [her] a slew of wildly inappropriate sexual images, messages and videos through the first half of this year, including many texts in which he implied that Ms. Areu should have sex with him and that he would assist Ms. Areu’s career if she did so.”
Areu also alleged that prime-time host Tucker Carlson made an advance toward her after an appearance on his show in 2018. “Following the show, Mr. Carlson … began telling Ms. Areu that he would be alone in New York City that night, and specifically said that he would be staying alone in his hotel room without any wife or kids,” the complaint alleges. After Areu “declined to spend the night at his hotel,” the complaint asserts, he “retaliated” against her by inviting her on his show only three times in 2019 and this year.
It’s hard for an organization to be as purely evil on every possible level as Fox News.
