Fox News Controversy
In August 2016, Andrea approached Fox News executives about Roger Ailes who sexually harassed her in 2015 for which she is demoted from The Five to Outnumbered and later she has taken off the air in April 2016.
She filed a case against Fox News for sexual harassment and also claimed that Bill O'Reilly, Dean Cain, and Scott Brown made inappropriate comments to her, even Brown and Cain touched her without her consent.
Tantaros further claimed in the lawsuit "Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny.”
She listed several examples of sexual harassment by Ailes, including an allegation that he told her to "turn around so I can get a good look at you." He also once allegedly told her, "I bet you look good in a bikini."
She further stated she was only removed from The Five in retaliation for her complaints to Fox New Executives. However, the network denied she ever told them about the incidents with the Allies, but only about incidents with other employees. The network also claimed to conduct an investigation, but Tantaros's lawyer disputed that.
When Tantaros went off the air, sources said it was done with "issues" with her contract. On August 29, Fox News responded with its own filing, calling Tantaros an "opportunist" and her suspension was due to the breach of her contract when she published her book without prior approval from the company.
Tantaros later went to the show Good Morning America on 4th October and said she is looking to bring "accountability" to Fox News.
