On Tuesday, Carlson spoke with reporters about her allegations against Fox News network CEO Roger Ailes, explaining what she hoped to get from her suit.
The New York Times covered the interview, which was conducted with lawyers flanking her so Carlson could check in on what could or couldn’t be said before trial:
“I just wanted to stand up for myself, first and foremost,” she said. “And I wanted to stand up for other women who maybe faced similar circumstances.”
Much of what she covers has already been outlined in her complaint, and when pressed for more details, her lawyer jumped in to say, “We are not going to try the case here.”
