Fox Sexual Harassment File: Hannity Edition

Rabid Islamophobe and wingnut propagandist Debbie Schlussel is notorious for her smearing of Muslims, and as such, was a welcome guest on the Fux Network whenever there was fear to whip up among their viewers. In particular, fellow Islamophobe and hate speech purveyor Sean "Insanity" Hannity welcomed Schlussel to his rancid hate show. But now, Schlussel has told an Oklahoma radio host that she has been barred from Hannity's show because she refused his sexual advances. According to her, after a function in Detroit, Hannity invited her back to his hotel room (presumably not to discuss sexual harassment at Fux). When she rebuffed the right-wing meathead's advances, she was not invited back on his program.

While you couldn't imagine two more unsympathetic characters as these, it shows that the sexual harassment culture at Fux runs wide and deep, and that disgraced former host Bill "O'Lielly" O'Reilly and former Network chief Roger "Jabba the Nut" Ailes aren't the only predators in that disgraceful zoo (indeed, former Fux reporter and current CNN host Alisyn Camerota has come forward to allege that Ailes sexually harassed her while she was at Fux, adding to the list of several victims of his).  Schlussel's not easily dismissed, since she's still a member in good standing of the Wingnut Wurlitzer. We're wagering in the days and weeks ahead that more women will come forward and tell their story of the depraved predatory environment at Fux.
