Fox Settles Another Sexual Assault Claim

Tamara Holder
Fox News has reportedly reached a more than $2.5 million settlement with a former contributor who said she was sexually assaulted by an executive.

The New York Times reported that former contributor Tamara Holder alleged that an executive "tried to force her to perform oral sex in February 2015."

Holder didn't report the alleged incident immediately after it occurred, according to the Times, because the attorney and author feared that it could destroy her career.
Holder eventually reported the charge to Fox News last fall.

The executive Holder claimed sexually assaulted her, Fox News Latino vice president Francisco Cortes, was fired after an investigation.

Holder left the network after her contract expired in January, according to The Hill.

“Yes, I was sexually assaulted. Immediately after I told the company where I worked about the incident, it promptly investigated the matter and took action, which I appreciate," Holder wrote in an email to the New York Times.
