On Friday, 21st Century Fox co-chairman Rupert Murdoch — who owns Fox News — tried to downplay the serious nature of sexual harassment claims that have been filed against numerous employees at Fox by calling them a “political” attack on his network “because we’re conservative.”
But Juliet Huddy, who accused former Fox host Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment, said Saturday that Murdoch is about to see even more damaging information come out about Fox News. Huddy posted this message on Facebook and Twitter:
Speaking with the website Law and Crime, Huddy later added:
“It’s ironic that O’Reilly, Murdoch, and others have suggested that I, along with the other accusers, are part of some left-wing conspiracy. [One], I’m fiscally conservative and socially liberal so let’s just get that out of the way. [And two], based on everything I have seen and has been reported, the participants in this, The Grand Conspiracy, are the executives at Fox.”
In other words, Huddy is alleging there will more shoes to drop in the weeks ahead which will further detail just how widespread sexual harassment is at Fox News and how top executives have worked to try and discredit those who dared speak out.
Huddy is one of dozens of women who have been paid tens of millions of dollars in settlements over the years in order to silence claims of sexual misconduct by top stars at the network. Other women have complained about the pervasive culture of harassment, sexualized bullying, and “locker room” culture at Fox.
As Huddy herself noted, Tick tock, tick tock. There might be some major revelations in the days ahead that will shake Fox News to its very core.
