This is a visceral 10-minutes from CNN yesterday as former "Fox News" commentator Tamara Holder breaks her confidentiality agreement about, as she puts its, the "abusive predator" behavior at Fox, some of which she describes in very crude detail. (This video is not rated Approved for Children.) As a lawyer, she notes that she has the right to go public since her agreement allows her to respond if she is demeaned, as she believes Rupert Murdoch did in his recent interview on Sky TV in England.
Her comments leave host Brian Stetler almost speechless in their raw emotion. I hadn't seen video of the Murdoch comments previously, nor read them all. But this piece includes them, and their fullness is so dismissive in contempt that it makes clear why Ms. Holder felt compelled to speak out, even at the risk of being sued.
(I will add one caveat here. In her comments, she is harshly sardonic about a Matt Damon quote on "gray areas" existing in the wide range of sexual misconduct, and she states that what happened to her was not remotely a "gray area." Out of full context, it's important to note that Damon's comments were not in any way about this situation, as it might appear. What happened to her was reprehensible, as is the pervasiveness of such actions.)
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
