Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 12, 2018

Fox News confirmed in late December that its chief Washington correspondent James Rosen had left the network; but they gave no reason for his departure and mentioned nothing on-air. NPR reported on Wednesday, however, that Rosen's exit came amid a string of sexual-harassment claims made against him by fellow Fox employees. "[Rosen] had an established pattern of flirting aggressively with many peers and had made sexual advances toward three female Fox News journalists, including two reporters and a producer," NPR's David Folkenflik reported, based on conversations with eight of Rosen's Fox colleagues. In one alleged incident, Rosen groped a new Fox reporter's breast in a limo and attempted to retaliate for her rebuffing his advances by stealing her sources.

Sounds like he didn't feel he would be tolerated at the network and decided to self deport from the studio.

As a guy who loves off center names, I totally blew milk out my nose when I read the name "David Folkenflik".

Seriously, this is funnier than "Mark and Sparkle Farkle" from the old Rowan & Martin show "Laugh-in".

David Folkenflik!

Ahhhahahahahahaha!

You know that old saying, OWS:

You can pick your friends.

And you can pick your nose.

But you can't Folkenflik your friends out of the window of a moving automobile.

It sounds like Fox News is a pretty horrible place for women to work.

Sure, but wouldn't you expect Fox News to be a pretty horrible place for women to work?

It's like saying, "Cops sometimes get killed doing cop stuff." No ----.

I agree, though. It does sound like Fox News in particular does sound like a pretty horiblke place for women to work, all the way up to the culture that Roger Ailes cultured for all his years at the top of Fox News.

Horrible.

But hey, it's profitable, so ---- your stupid feelings.

Lay off the sauce. Or consider gainful employment. Better self esteem will curb the urge to have stupid angry outbursts over nothing.
