ABC News has landed Gretchen Carlson’s first television interview about the sexual harassment lawsuit she filed against current scumbag and former Fox News chief Roger Ailes.

Deadline reports that Carlson will sit down to discuss the suit as part of Crossing Lines: Women And Men At Work, an hour-long special dedicated to the issue for sexual harassment airing on November 18. In July, Carlson filed a lawsuit against her former boss, claiming that Ailes terminated her employment after she refused to have a sexual relationship with him. Her allegations were taken quite seriously,r esulting in an outpouring of other women eager to share their stories of the disgusting harassment they faced at the hands of Ailes.


Sexual harassment in the workplace and in the world in general is a subject thet warrants discussion and national attention, given the President-elect’s proclivity for bragging about grabbing women by the pussy. Normalizing this behavior and writing it off as boyish nonsense is something that will probably continue, but any discussion of it on a national scale is important nonetheless.

But, according to ABC, the content of the special won’t break much new ground:

A former Wall Street trader, Sam Polk, will talk about the “sexist atmosphere” he observed at the workplace. A female former human resources executive, Cynthia Shapiro, will explain that HR departments may not always be on the employees’ side when it comes to a complaint of sexual harassment.

This is the first television interview for Carlson since she decided to settle the lawsuit for $20 million in September and should be interesting to say the least.
