Gretchen Carlson Files Lawsuit Against Fox News CEO Roger Ailes

Gretchen Carlson, an anchor at the Fox News Channel,  recently filed a lawsuit against CEO Roger Ailes. According to POLITICO, Carlson is pressing charges for wrongful termination and sexual harassment.

Tom Kludt of CNN released a statement on Twitter reading:

“One of the media industry’s most powerful figures fired a longtime on-air personality because she refused to sleep with him and reported disparaging treatment in the newsroom. Such are the key allegations in a sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit filed today by Fox News host Gretchen Carlson against the network’s chairman and CEO Roger Ailes.”

Although Fox remained silent about her termination, Carlson’s attorneys at Smith Mullin P.C. have officially announced that she was fired on June 23.

According to POLITICO, Carlson filed her lawsuit at the Superior Court of New Jersey accusing Ailes of making sexually-charged comments, lewd innuendos, and demands for sex.

Despite the circumstance Carlson is facing, the anchor said she desires to be part of her viewers’ lives.

Hadas Gold, media reporter for POLITICO, shared Carlson’s most updated announcement:

“I have strived to empower women and girls throughout my entire career. Although this was a difficult step to take, I had to stand up for myself and speak out for all women and the next generation of women in the workplace. I am extremely proud of my accomplishments at Fox News and for keeping our loyal viewers engaged and informed on events and news topics of the day.”
