Over the past nine months, it would seem as though judgment day has come over at Fox News, the most-watched cable news network in America. Numerous women, some of them longtime contributors such as Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly, alleged sexual harassment against the network's founder and longtime head, Roger Ailes. He resigned in July 2016 after 20 years leading the network. His stepping down was followed this past week by the stunning ouster of Bill O'Reilly who has been with the network since its inception, with fifteen of those years being spent, unchallenged, at the top of primetime cable news ratings. He had been hit with similar allegations of sexual harassment by female co-workers, which prompted the network to pay out $13 million in settlements. In total, Fox News has paid $38 million to women who have worked at the network, which, according to one employee, “operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny.”
