Fox News Lawsuit Falls Apart Upon Closer Inspection

Gaping holes have emerged in the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by Cathy Areu, a periodic Fox News guest, against Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. Even the mainstream media can’t ignore them.

Per Mediaite:

In a lawsuit filed on Monday in the Southern District of New York, Areu claims she was harassed by Carlson, Hannity and other employees of the network, and that she was largely barred from appearing after she declined their advances. In an initial response the company said the claims were “completely false.”

Over the last several days, records of Areu’s appearances on the network and other publicly available information has undermined some of her claims. New emails between Areu and the network’s employees seem to add to those concerns.

Even more significantly, eyewitness accounts indicate Carlson’s wife was with him on a key evening when Areu said Carlson promised her he would be alone.

Areu claimed that Hannity humiliated her with a “misogynist” display on March 8, 2018, when he allegedly flashed a $100 bill to the set crew demanding one of the men dare to ask her for drinks on his dime. She claimed she was “completely mortified” and barred from appearing on his show again after falling to play along.

However, an email chain between Areu and one of Hannity’s staffers reveals a very different story. According to outside investigators hired by Fox News, Hannity offered Areu and her friend, who accompanied her to the studio, $100 to get drinks next door. She even promptly followed up with a thank you email, complete with a photograph of a pineapple martini. Instead of being barred from Hannity’s program, Areu made nine more appearances with Hannity and guest hosts.

Areu also claimed Tucker Carlson propositioned her after a December 10, 2018 appearance on his show during Fox News’ annual Christmas party. But her last appearance on Carlson’s show that year was on November 30 when no company event took place.

Area is just another metooer that fails in her accusations. This liberal whose eyes are way too far apart is another Trump hater and conservative hater who will now just fade in the sunset.

Here we go again! What did the left pay her to sully the names of these 2 champions of liberty? That’s the most ludicrous thing I ever heard!My sympathies go to the families of these outstanding gentlemen having to suffer such appalling insults. Keep up the good work, both Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson as well as the entire FOX network!

This ugly #unt could not get a date if she paid for a man. She is a far leftist looney and never should have been allowed on any Fox network to begin with.

This is what the Murdock Klan gets for trying to shove socialist/Marxist dogma down our throats by sandwiching the garbage in between the scheduled conservative guests.

Unfortunately we will soon see this piece of sheeet blowing bubbles on CNN with the other prime examples of human debris.

The president should declare martial law a month before the election, and remove every vestige of the dumbocraptic party. Reinstate the WALTERS/MCCARRAN act ,and throw out every anti American P.O.S. after we have regained control of our country, can we resume governmental practices. Only after installing term limits, and no outside investments, or other forms of income while in office. This will help prevent the sordid crimes committed by politicians.

RICO laws can be used against the Deep State.

Shhhh! Someone should whisper that to AG Barr so as not to embarrass him.

Am I the only person that sees this as a planned attack just before the election? Just like Senator Feinstein sitting on that letter from Christine Blasey Ford until the eleventh hour during the confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh. We also now have prominent Dems including Pelosi, Biden, and others who are trying to say that Trump won’t leave if he loses. Are they setting us up? Are they going to commit voter fraud? I wouldn’t bet a free cup of coffee against that. Just my opinion.

Who cannot see this for what it is- a very blatant attempt by the left to smear these two conservatives! The trouble with the democrats is one can ALWAYS see through their lies!

Right. Tucker called her the Sherpa (guide) – I believe to show us the lunacy of the left.
Guiding us into the most stupid ideas at the time. Well, that time is now real life daily from the demoloons.
Liberalism truly is a mental disorder.
Tucker and Sean should sue her into oblivion.

I’m sick of women making these perposterous accusations, having them debucked, and they suffer no penalty. Lock her up for a long time. If she makes accusations in prison, they will determine her fate. This woman’s actions degrade women and make us look vengeful and cheap. Penalize this woman to the maximum the Law allows. How many of these frauds do we have to tolerate before something is done to stop these “politically motivated” lies?

The problem we have is that millions of people of all ages have heard and read this story as told by this by women not only in the NO TRUMP publications but in continuous reports on their favorite “news” channels. They will continue to believe this woman’s story . This reputation destroying story will live on for a long time and this was the intent of the Democrat/Liberal/take down America party. In their minds they have succeeded in making this a story they can refer to for a long time

I am not going to blast Cathy Areu but sometimes I wonder what she really adds to the conversation when she is on Fox News. What is sad is the new “Taliban” mentality that the leftist Democrats have imposed on us through their Democrat Party owned media has created crimes and criminal actions that are outside of the written law and they get away with it. A huge percentage of men and women meet at their workplace and then end up getting married. Now if you say anything untoward or flirt with a member of the opposite sex at work and things do not work out, they can weaponize it and literally crucify you. If you start a relationship and it doesn’t work out and you end it, you become a target. I cannot imagine dating in this time. What if you go out and things do work out and you find that your girlfriend is not a women but is transgender? I cannot imagine what happens then. I thank God every day that I am happily married.

At first I used to be amazed by her, Amazed that she could turn something simple and common sense into a Horror story with made up lies and innuendo, Amazed as she lied, her eyeballs would pop out of her head without blinking, followed with her head twisting to one side, that’s how you knew she was lying, even when faced with the truth nothing could change her mind, her opinions were so outrageous one would think she was recruited from an insane asylum, she would make the perfect running mate for Joe, just let her do the talking.

Areu has shown over the years that she is seriously mentally imbalanced. She typifies malignant invasive cancer cells that try to ultimately destroy the host body. The worst of her none sense is perhaps that she doesn’t know an invention called mirror. Pity. Somebody have mercy and send her a mirror or anything reflective. May be she’d run for the hills to hide rather than fantasizing men desiring her.

This article makes me wonder if something deeply nefarious is happening. It is possible that Democrats or another leftist group could be extorting this behavior? Maybe Cathy Areu has something hidden in her past that Democrats have discovered and will reveal if she does not do as bidden. Pictures? An affair? Could accusations against other Republican or conservative personages be similarly created? This seems likely!

Just another “FORD” who finds it easy to LIE but not so easy to remember the details that hold such accusations together.
If she and Ford were just a few points smarter,their false accusations would have been believed.
