Veteran TV Producer Shelley Ross Accuses Roger Ailes of Sexual Harassment

8 August 2016 11:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Veteran TV producer Shelley Ross is the latest woman in the industry to accuse former Fox News chairman-ceo Roger Ailes of sexual harassment.

Ross wrote in a 3,500-word essay for the Daily Beast that Ailes proposed a “sexual alliance” after hiring her as a segment producer on NBC’s “Tomorrow Show” in 1981.

“‘When did you first discover you were sexy?'” Ross recalls Ailes asking during lunch the day after accepting the job offer. “My head suddenly dropped like a marionette and I could no longer make eye contact. I could only manage to stare at my feet as I answered, ‘I am finding this conversation very embarrassing,'” Ross writes.

Ailes, who was executive producer of the late-night show at the time, then stressed the importance of loyalty and allegedly insisted that “the best expression of that loyalty comes in the form of a ‘sexual alliance.'”

Ailes apologized and “blamed the harassment on ‘middle age »

Gretchen Carlson Rebuts Roger Ailes’ Defenders: ‘They’re Still Being Paid by Fox’

12 July 2016 6:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, in an interview published Tuesday, offered a rebuttal to her former colleagues who have publicly defended Roger Ailes, the network chief she claims repeatedly sexually harassed her over several years: “They’re still being paid by Fox.”

Carlson made the statement to the New York Times as part of an interview that was her first with a major media outlet since she filed a lawsuit July 6 alleging sexual harassment from Ailes. Since then, Greta Van Susteren, Sean Hannity, Neil Cavuto, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Maria Bartiromo, Geraldo Rivera, Bret Baier and other current and former Fox News staffers have come to Ailes’ defense publicly.

In the interview, Carlson claims that she first complained to Ailes of being harassed at Fox News in 2009, after an incident in which her “Fox and Friends” morning-show co-host Steve Doocy allegedly pulled her arm down while they were on air in an attempt to “quiet” her. She »

Roger Ailes Lawsuit: Gretchen Carlson’s Ratings Performance Under Scrutiny as Sides Square Off

7 July 2016 12:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The ratings performance of Gretchen Carlson’s Fox News program “The Real Story” is under scrutiny on the heels of the anchor’s lawsuit against Fox News chief Roger Ailes alleging that she was let go last month after rebuffing his sexual advances.

Carlson’s suit pits the veteran anchor against one of media’s most powerful executives. Carlson alleged Wednesday in a lawsuit filed in Superior Court of New Jersey that she was removed from the Fox News Channel morning program “Fox & Friends” in 2013 after speaking out about the way she was treated by colleagues on the show. After that she moved from the highly rated morning program to the lower-profile 2 p.m. slot.

In a statement, Ailes said the allegations were “false” and “retaliatory” because Fox News did not renew her contract. According to a source familiar with the matter, Fox News’ position is that Carlson’s contract was not renewed because of the ratings »

Gretchen Carlson Attorneys Say Roger Ailes’ ‘Low Ratings’ Excuse for Termination Is ‘Demonstrably False’

Gretchen Carlson’s attorneys have fired back at Fox News boss Roger Ailes, calling his claims that the former anchor was fired due to poor ratings “demonstrably false.” Lawyers Nancy Erika Smith and Martin Hyman said in a statement, “Ailes’ claim that Gretchen Carlson was terminated because of bad ratings is demonstrably false. The publicly available ratings confirm the allegation in the Complaint that at the time of her termination Gretchen’s total viewership was up 33% year to date and up 23% in the key demographic.” “After her firing from ‘Fox and Friends’ for complaining about discrimination, Gretchen was moved to a. »

Michael Sam -- Kisses Off Trump -- 'He's an Asshole' (Video)

3 July 2016 12:45 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_li4ko8v6"]] Michael Sam weighed in on Donald Trump, clearly not believe he's a friend of the Lgbt community and calling him an "asshole." The hubbub was resurrected after Trump's recent comments expressing sympathy for the Lgbt community over Orlando.  The media went back to the archives and re-posted video of Trump on "Fox and Friends" back in 2014, when an emotional Sam kissed his then-boyfriend after getting drafted. Trump clearly had a problem with the Pda, and made that clear. »

Is This The Dumbest Cable News Segment You’ll See This Week?

2 July 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

If you've ever wondered which is the bigger waste of time, Facebook or cable news, you may finally have your answer. On Saturday morning's edition of Fox and Friends Saturday, co-host Clayton Morris scored an interview with the family behind a mildly-amusing Facebook waste of time that centers around hapless dad Jeremy Basso dropping his infant daughter at daycare clad in overalls... and no shirt. If you're wondering why that's a big enough deal to catch fire on Facebook, you're obviously not a Facebook person. »

Seth Meyers Rates the Presidential Candidates as ‘Late Night’ Guests

27 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Just about every presidential contender has appeared on “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” except one.

But some would say it’s no wonder Donald Trump hasn’t parted the curtains on the NBC talk show. As Trump assumed the status of Republican front runner this winter, Meyers got renewed attention for his role as the featured entertainer at the White House Correspondents Assn. dinner in 2011, in which he and President Obama skewered and mocked Trump, who was in the room and did not look happy. The New York Times even cited the moment as a source of Trump’s drive to be taken seriously, and not be humiliated again.

Meyers says he doesn’t agree with the premise, and notes that “Late Night” had Trump booked at one point, but that the candidate had to back out “not for any reason outside the normal campaign reasons.” Still, he allows, “I »

Donald Trump will miss out on two important votes during the primaries...from his own kids. The presidential hopeful revealed to Fox and Friends on Monday that Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump will not be casting their vote for him in New York come April 19. In fact, they won't be voting for anyone. "They had a longtime to register and they were, you know, unaware of the rules, and they didn't, they didn't register in time," the 69-year-old explained. He continued, "They feel very guilty, but it's fine. I understand that. I think they have to register a year in advance and they didn't. So Eric and Ivanka, I guess, won't be voting."

Oscars: Stacey Dash’s Awkward Appearance Inspires Confusion

28 February 2016 8:09 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stacey Dash’s appearance at the 2016 Academy Awards was perhaps the most awkward moment of the night.

The actress walked out on the Oscar stage following what was supposed to be a comedic introduction of the director of minority outreach for the Academy.

“I cannot wait to help my people out,” said Dash. “Happy Black History Month.”

Dash said her appearance was organized in order to increase diversity at the Oscars but it was not received that way.

Viewers quickly took to Twitter to discuss the moment.

That #StacyDash cameo was most confusing… And it's still won't help you girl.
