Television journalist Alisyn Camerota said on Sunday she was a target of sexual harassment by Roger Ailes when she worked at Fox News, joining other former colleagues at the cable channel who have accused their ex-boss of inappropriate behavior. - From Reuters
In the interview with Stelter, Camerota expanded on comments she made last week on her own show, when she said she had experienced "emotional harassment" at Fox and the culture at the network made it impossible to stop.
Ailes never engaged in the inappropriate conversations she now claims occurred, and he vigorously denies this fictional account of her interactions with him and of Fox News editorial policy," said Ailes' lawyer, Susan Estrich, of Camerota's allegations.
"He could also be a bit of a bully and mean, and he also was often kind of grossly inappropriate with things that he would say." Five people, including a 2-year-old toddler and two other children, died on Sunday in a house fire in the New York City borough of Queens, the city's deadliest such blaze in two years, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
