Gretchen Carlson Suing FoxNews Head Roger Ailes for Sexual Harassment

All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.

Gretchen Carlson, a longtime host on Fox News, is accusing the network's CEO and chairman Roger Ailes of sexual harassment and retaliation. A spokeswoman for Ailes did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Wednesday.

The lawsuit alleges that Ailes repeatedly "injected sexual and/or sexist comments" into conversations; made "sexual advances by various means;" and said to her last September, "I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago and then you'd be good and better and I'd be good and better."

The suit says Carlson requested the September meeting because she was seeking to "bring to an end the retaliatory and discriminatory treatment she had endured."
Instead, the suit alleges, the "retaliation" continued through June, when her contract was not renewed.
