  • GRETCHEN CARLSON: Sues Roger Ailes, her former boss at Fox News.
Would you be surprised to hear that someone had alleged Roger Ailes, head of Fox News, was a dirty old man? How about if it was former Fox talent Gretchen Carlson making the accusation?

Carlson, who has left Fox, said Ailes retaliated against her for repeatedly refusing to have sex with him. And that ain't all she says in a new lawsuit.

The website Crooks and Liars certainly didn't sound surprised:

We know that Roger Ailes is a pig when it comes to women.Media Matters and Vice have documented the long and ugly history of his pimping (yes, I said it) of bare legs and low necklines, and blondes with glass desks. A Google video search of "Gretchen Carlson upskirts" only brings up "About 4,680 results (0.41 seconds)".

The air is thick with schadenfreude. Consider here "The paranoia and vindictiveness of Roger Ailes."
