16 Insanely Sexist Moments That Explain Why This FOX Host Is Suing For Sexual Harassment

In case there was any doubt

Whether or not you think former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson has a strong case against CEO Roger Ailes over alleged sexual harassment, it’s pretty clear the former Miss America has suffered through years of sexist moments at the television news network.

This new video from Bloomberg News shows that in recent years, Carlson’s male co-hosts regularly made personal and sexualized comments about her appearance – looking “beautiful” and speculating on whether her dress was cut too high for her to ride a mechanical bull live on air.

Understandably, Carlson appears visibly uncomfortable in these clips, even “jokingly” referring to co-host Brian Kilmeade as being “sexist.”

For its part, Fox News has hired its own independent firm to investigate Ailes before Carlson’s suit potentially goes to court or a financial settlement. And as the New York Times points out, this case is just the latest example of media organizations having to shift to a changing climate where behavior that was never laudatory, but was often tolerated, is no longer acceptable.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin mocked the teenager on Thursday during a press briefing in Davos.

Even though marathon running is on the decline, half a million people signed up to participate in the 2020 London Marathon. It seems wild that someone would voluntarily sign up to run 26.2 miles, but those half a million people might actually be on to something. A new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that running a marathon can help reverse signs of aging.

Researchers at Barts and University College London looked at 138 first-time marathon runners between the ages of 21 and 69. "We wanted to look at novice athletes. We didn't include people who said they ran for more than two hours a week," Dr. Charlotte Manisty, the study's senior author and cardiologist at University College London, said per CNN.
