Former Fox Host Claims Fox News Hacked Her Computer


Former Fox News host Andrea Tanteros has said the network “tortured” her via the alleged hacking and stalking of her social media accounts.

Fox News is in panic mode as the network has been getting devastating news, week after week.

Megyn Kelly, Roger Ailes, Greta Van Susteren, and Bill O’Reilly are no longer there. Bill O’Reilly was the network’s top revenue generator for the network and was forced out last week after sexual harassment allegations caused sponsors to quit supporting The O’Reilly Factor.

Now, things are about to get a lot worse for Fox News. Andrea Tantaros, the former Fox News host who accused Fox News of creating a culture of sexual harassment, has filed a lawsuit claiming the network hacked her computer.

This is really bad:

Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros stepped up her fight with her ex-employer claiming in a new lawsuit that she was a victim of hacking, electronic surveillance and a social media harassment campaign that mirrors the plot of a “Homeland” episode.

Fox News operatives broke into her personal computer, planted key-logging and other surveillance software on it and then used the information “to intimidate, terrorize and crush her career through an endless stream of lewd, offensive and career-damaging social media posts, blog entries and commentary,” Tantaros claims in the lawsuit.

“The outlandish merges with reality in the world of Fox News,” she said in the complaint, filed Monday in New York federal court.

Fox News denies the new allegations:

Dechert LLP, the law firm representing Fox News, rejected the allegations in an emailed statement.

“Fox News and its executives flatly deny that they conducted any electronic surveillance of Ms. Tantaros,” the law firm said. “They have no knowledge of the anonymous or pseudonymous tweets described in her complaint.”

Sexual harassment is never acceptable, and there was clearly problems going on behind-the-scenes at Fox News. But who knows what will become of this new accusation.

At this point, it’s impossible to know who is right and who is wrong. Which side do you support? Please leave us a comment (below) and tell us.
