A former Fox News employee told New York magazine that ousted chairman Roger Ailes had sexually exploited and “psychologically tortured” her for more than 20 years.
Laurie Luhn, in an extensive interview published Friday afternoon, detailed a coercive relationship that she said began in 1988 and involved Ailes paying her for sexual favors – with cash, mentoring, jobs and promotions.
Luhn signed a $3.15m settlement with Fox News in 2011 that barred her from speaking publicly but told the magazine that she was motivated to speak out by the recent spate of sexual harassment allegations against Ailes.
“He’s a predator,” she said.
No, obviously, you don’t want a boss doing this. However, it’s still interesting, the logi of her statement, isn’t it?
I sold sex to him for 20 years therefore he exploited me.
Watching the money flow we might think it the other way around.
