Glenn Beck Offers Insight on Fox News Culture

Glenn Beck
Glenn Beck says it would be interesting to see if the same harassment incidents have happened at other media outlets: "This is not a conservative disease, it's not a Fox disease, it's a male disease."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Glenn Beck on Monday gave his radio audience an insider's perspective of working at Fox News in the era of Roger Ailes, explaining the benefits of being friendly with the channel's former head man and how, in his opinion, liberal activists are now on a "witch hunt" to smear conservatives there as sexual harassers.

Fox & Friends hosts Steve Doocy and Gretchen Carlson "hated each other," Beck said Monday, but Doocy was an "FOR," a term known to Fox News insiders that meant he was a Friend of Roger. Carlson, on the other hand, sued Ailes for sexual harassment, which started a chain reaction leading to Bill O'Reilly's ouster last week, also amid allegations he harassed women.

Beck talks about Fox News at the 1:26:17 time mark.
