Fox Business Anchor Suspended
Following Sexual Harassment Accusation

Washington Free Beacon, by Paul Crookston

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/7/2017 4:27:48 AM

Fox Business Network anchor Charles Payne has been suspended pending an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment. A female analyst who had appeared on Fox News and CNN is alleging that she was blackballed from Fox after ending an affair with Payne, the Los Angeles Times reports. She also claims to have been coerced into a sexual relationship, and 20th Century Fox is investigating her allegations while other anchors fill in on Payne´s show "Making Money." HuffPost writer Yashar Ali reported that the woman in question was Scottie Nell Hughes, a pro-Trump commentator who also appeared frequently on CNN during the 2016

Sorry. No one is "coerced into a sexual relationship". It´s voluntary or it´s rape.

It is all out war on the Fox male correspondents. With Murdochs´ daughter-in-laws in charge, we could be seeing the end of Fox as we know it. I personally think alot of Charles Payne.

Charles is terrific and I hope this is all cleared up in his favor. I watch him frequently and can´t remember seeing this ´lady´ on there more than once. The smear machine is out for all conservatives and those are found on FNC/FBC only.

I remember her. She had short skirts and plunging necklines when she was on his show in another format. Talked a lot. I was never impressed. She didn´t have much original thought, but favored platitudes and today´s talking points.

Her book jacket ("Roar") has the following review: “America has its modern-day superwoman—Scottie Nell Hughes. As a mother of two she’s head chef, homework checker, and person in charge of fun. As a private citizen she’s the protector of the Constitution, main street, and freedom. A purveyor of grassroots passion in all forms of media from radio to television to the Internet, her distinctive voice rings loud and clear. Some might even say it ROARS. It should make us all sleep easier knowing that Scottie, armed with Christian values and unparalleled determination, is always fighting for truth, justice, and the American way.”

Scottie Nell Hughes?!? Oh, come on. I am sorely disapproving of her behavior...if it happened, that she would do such a thing and then to cry coersion...honey, please. If you weren´t forcibly raped, there was no coersion you couldn´t say no to. And if it didn´t happen, double shame for lying.

As for Charles - he´s one of my favorites. I hope it isn´t true. I´d be disappointed in him.

FTA: The woman told her lawyer that she expected Payne to help her become a regular contributor. Sources tell the Los Angeles Times that when she broke off the affair, her appearances were cut back drastically.

They had an affair, which both admit. Sounds she was trying to sleep her way to becoming "a regular contributor." So where´s the sexual harassment?

Seriously people, this is but part of a well-organised scheme to bring Fox News down, not anything to do with "sexual harassment", Oddly similar to the "Russian collusion" so-called investigation.

If Democrats are behind it, you know they´re lying.

Of course, the allegations could very possibly BE true and he could very well be a scum bag just as she alleges, despite who her employer is.

I would also assert that just because we never hear anyone at FakeNews being sued for harassment, doesn´t mean it doesn´t happen. Let´s be real...

Three years. Read her Wiki bio. This is a grownup woman, 37 years of age, educated and accomplished. She supposedly ended their “love affair” and is now accusing him of sexual harassment because Fox cut down her appearances there.

She is either not as smart as advertised or she has decided that she too should have a cut of the Fox Harassment Settlement Pie. Then she could spend more time with her kids.

I think Charles just might prevail on this one. Neither one is coming out well, but she is adding golddigger to her image.

An article in the WFB, written by Crookston, based on a Huffpost report, posted here by "you know who" as part of her daily 4 AM dump, that would be a "twofer" by taking down Tea Party activist Scottie Nell and black conservative Charles Payne in one swoop? Really?

Depends on what they are using as a definition of coercion. Sometimes some predators will push buttons that leave a victim feeling like they have no other option. But when it comes to the business of television, I don´t buy it.

Sounds to me like she played the Hollywood game of sex for career advancement, and when she figured out she was being used, she retaliated. Just like all those women did to Cosby.

On the surface, this is consensual - though stupid - relationship. Endings have consequences, or so the victimology goes these days.

Payne has long been a favorite of mine and our portfolio has benefited greatly from his insight, decisive commentary and not BS assessments. He worked hard to get his seat at FBN. His personal decisions, if carried to consensual affair, disappoint, but do not take away from his knowledge.

SHE however, sounds like a full-on opportunist. Little late in the game to toss a tissue-thin claim of harassment. Like..."me,too!!! HE did it!" Oh, please.

Get a frickin´ backbone, women. I fought absolute sexual come-on frequently in my career - by using equipment not even used today - a tape recorder and a overhead announcement system that went out to everyone and kept permanent records of all overhead announcements. Then, the Dolly Parton - rooster to hen in 5 seconds if it happens again. It NEVER did.

Everyone wants to be a victim and *someone* must pay...find that *someone* no matter who you ruin. Gloria and daughter Lisa have made millions off the one-off media conference, never to be seen again with said "victim."

This country will not survive pink hats, victim-everything, all men are evil meme, and safe spaces. I suggest a permanent kindergarten "space" for this entire mindset. Get over yourselves. And don´t ever, ever pretend you can lead ANYTHING, not even your way out of the safe space pink paper bag you inhabit.

Aside - have you ever wondered why so many 20 something *adult* teachers are having sex with their students? They are the same emotional age and have no sense of being an adult vs child. Stunted growth. It comes from self-centered world we have lived in esp in last 15 yrs.

So the disease at Fox News has now spread to the Fox Business Network.

Like the male Fox News anchors have been accused of sexual harassment, now a male Fox Business Network anchor has been accused of sexual harassment.

I don´t know the actual facts in each of these lawsuits, but I am assuming innocence on the part of all Fox anchors until/unless court decisions come down otherwise.

I like Charles Payne´s way of putting complicated financial situations into understandable English. I hope he weathers this storm.

Nobody is more excited about Friday’s release of Al Gore’s sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth” than climate skeptic Marc Morano, which comes as an ill wind for the movement to stop global warming, not to mention Mr. Gore. For months, Mr. Morano and his team have tracked the Democrat at advance screenings of “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” ambushing him with stunts such as asking him about his prediction that without drastic measures, the planet would reach a “point of no return” in a decade. The former vice president made that claim 11 years ago in “An Inconvenient Truth,”

(The other two states on the list were Illinois and Kansas.) And data from Pew Charitable Trusts found that while people are all about moving to the South (their population grew by nearly 1.4 million people from 2014 to 2015) and the West (866,000 more people), the population growth in the Northeast is “sluggish.” The Northeastern exodus is particularly

Whether it´s Mohammed becoming the most popular baby name, or one in 10 babies in England being Muslim or the fact that halal meat is being served in Pizza Hut, a Muslim story always tends to generate more heat than light. Indeed, Islamophobia is often perpetuated by fear and a sense that Muslims are taking over our jobs, our homes and our lives, thus leading to a polarizing society and the so-called clash of civilizations.

The IRS has finally agreed to a process for deciding on the last remaining nonprofit application that was snared in the Obama administration’s tea party targeting, more than four years after the illegal singling-out of conservative groups for special scrutiny was first revealed. In court filings this week, the IRS acceded to rules governing how the tax agency will decide whether to grant nonprofit status to the Texas Patriots Tea Party, which has been awaiting a decision for years. The agreement doesn’t mean the group will be approved, but it sets up a process for making a decision. “This does provide a path

Girls from Minnesota were taken to Michigan for "treatment" by their parents.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Donald Trump, who has averaged 40% job approval since his inauguration, received approval ratings of 50% or higher in 17 states in the first half of 2017. Residents in an equal number of states gave him approval ratings below 40%. In 16 states, his ratings ranged between 40% and 49%. Consistent with the broader geographic patterns of Republican strength across the country, some of Trump´s highest approval ratings tend to be in Southern, Plains and Mountain West states. His lowest ratings are primarily in Northeast and West Coast states. The results are based on Gallup Daily

The Merchants of Misery — a.k.a., climate scientists — are working overtime to shame you about all the pleasures you’re enjoying this summer and how your selfish indulgences will cause the planet’s demise. Grilling your favorite cheeseburger? Glutton! Packing up your brood for a drive to the lake house? Monster! Hoping vacation sex will result in a new baby to add to the family? Hedonist! Even mowing your lawn earns a tsk-tsk. A study from Sweden’s Lund University published July 12 lists many of the sacrifices you should make to reduce your carbon footprint.

I love reading about regional cultural variances. Typically these types of reports include the use of y’all vs. you all, or soda vs. pop. Dating app Hater matches date-seekers using a combination of location, age, and mutual hates. Hater asks users to rate their level of “like” on various subjects. They’ve compiled user data to produce a map of the U.S. illustrating the most hated (of the topics available) issue or thing in each state. The New York Times, bloggers, cheap coffee, sand, and being the designated driver top the most-hated things in a handful of states. (Snip for graphics)

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight

Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´.

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ. The President said that transgender service in the military causes

Debbie Wasserman Schultz employed Pakistani IT staffers and brothers who were paid over $4 million dollars over the course of their employment even though they were accused of a cyber-security breach. Imran Awan was arrested as he attempted to flee the U.S. after wiring approximately $300,000 to Pakistan. Fox News is the only cable network covering this huge scandal. When Imran Awan was arrested he was carrying $12,000 in cash on him. His wife was carrying $12,000 of cash when she fled the country too. Imran and his Muslim brothers, Abid and Jamal accessed unauthorized computers while acting as IT

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) today warned President Trump against firing either Attorney General Jeff Sessions or special counsel Robert Mueller, saying he plans to introduce bipartisan judicial review legislation to protect the former FBI director and future special counsels. Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill that he´s "100 percent behind Jeff Sessions," who´s been the target of various slings from Trump over the past week, and referred to a Wednesday tweet from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa): Everybody in D.C.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

Filmmaker Michael Moore says he tried to Hillary Clinton that Michigan and Wisconsin voters might lean toward Donald Trump before the 2016 presidential election but claims no one would listen. Moore appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to promote his upcoming one-man Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender. But the Michigan resident took time to discuss the current political climate, saying he ´never wanted to be more wrong in my life´ when warning people about Trump voters. ´I was trying to warn the rest of the country, out here, people who voted for Obama

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that
