Ailes was sacked because he is a serial sexual harasser. Years - decades? - of demeaning, insulting and doing who knows what else to women finally caught up with him. And then only because a few celebrity women with enough public clout finally said Enough!
In light of the Roger Ailes allegations at Fox News people ask how women can be sexually harassed and not only stay in contact with the alleged perpetrator, but also speak well of them?
