A series of harassment allegations against high-profile Fox personalities were made public in a lawsuit filed on Monday, to the sound of celebratory trumpet blasts from the rest of the news media. Many of the outlets that took weeks to report the alleged rape of a woman by Joe Biden were not nearly as hesitant to amplify the claims made against Fox hosts Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, among others. Is that because the allegations against Hannity and Carlson are more credible? Well, you be the judge.
A frequent Fox guest named Cathy Areu (she was not an employee of the company at the time of these alleged incidents) says she was victimized by Sean Hannity in March of 2018 when the host supposedly presented $100 and offered to give it to any man on the staff who would take her on a date. A few months later she was on Carlson’s show when, she claims, Carlson mentioned that he’d be alone in the city that evening. The lawsuit also says that Carlson changed his jacket in front of her and that she wasn’t able to escape this terrible scene because she was “tied to her chair” by her microphone. Areu makes similar claims against other Fox employees and personalities, and she says she was punished when she turned down Carlson’s alleged implied potential proposition by only being invited on the show three times afterwards.
