Rush Limbaugh Defended Roger Ailes

Rush Limbaugh is going to bat for Roger Ailes, and he uses a new conspiracy theory to do so. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz, Ana Kasparian, and Jules Suzdaltsez hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"RUSH LIMBAUGH : I'm sure that you are all aware of the sexual harassment lawsuit that's been filed by Gretchen Carlson against Roger Ailes at Fox News. It's a lawsuit not aimed at Fox, it's targeted specifically at Roger Ailes and I've had people email me, "why haven't you commented on this?" Well, A, I actually didn't think it was necessary, but I'd be happy to. But before I do, I just want to remind you that as I knew what happened, there have been a plethora of women employees at Fox who have stood up, and said they don't understand it, they've never seen it, they've never seen any evidence of it, they've never been treated this way, they were shocked and stunned. Let's see if I can remember the women, we have Kimberly Guilfoyle, Sandra Smith, Jeanine Pirro of Judge Jeanine, Ainsley Earhardt — there’s a bunch of them — Neil Cavuto has publicly, even Geraldo [Rivera] has weighed in. And Martha MaCallum weighed in, Greta Van Susteren has — they are all saying that they've never seen this, they've never been treated this way, they've never seen any sign of it anywhere."

    Rush and Bill O’Reilly are both perverts too! They both play to their
    ignorant audiences for money and are total harassers and pervs behind the

    Limbaugh is so delusional. And he is justifying Ailes that behavior is ok
    and rather than realize how extremely unprofessional and uncouth. Limbaugh/
    Ailes birds of a feather.

    Given Limbaugh’s own despicable politics, it comes as no surprise to find
    this corpulent grease ball standing up for Ailes.

    No, Cenk. I can’t believe you missed the ultimate issue for Rush. I am so
    disappointed. Ailes shared the women with Limbaugh. Remember what Ailes
    told the RNC interview lady, “you have to blow my friends too.”

      When’s Rush gonna get hit with his own slew of sexual harrassment
      allegations? His opiate and viagra addictions were so long ago. We need
      some new Limbaugh scandals.

    I have a feeling Fox New will still stand after this because at the end of
    the day the people that really watch fox news for news are so brainwash
    that all fox news have to say at the end of the day is; that Liberal Media

      Or, mostly because most (f not all) of the accusations came from Fox News
      employees who want to keep their job and who Fox News viewers will support.

    Rush sure knows a lot about vicious attacks. I doubt Murdoch changes much.
    They will just get a new Mr. Potter. I liked how Ana talked about her
    frustration with the victim thing. It is understandable, but keep in mind
    that rape is not the only case where you have an accuser/witness/victim
    that get’s thrown under the bus. Hell if you get murdered they will try to
    bring in some dirt to try to confuse the issue. It was a hard thing to do
    what Gretchen did. She knew that if Ailes dodged the bullet and no one else
    came forward her career was probably over. That’s a tough choice to make
    and probably the reason the other ladies didn’t speak up.

    • el80ne

      Wise strategy to pursue the case solely against Ailes to drive the
      hopefully fatal wedge between him and Fox and pry loose as many colleagues
      to her camp as possible. She had to be concerned the ones she suspected of
      sleeping with him might work to undermine her. I could see her toasting a
      glass of Dom with her council over the developments of the last couple days.

    I don’t know why, maybe I’m dyslexic, but for a split second I read the
    title as “Rush Limbaugh Dies” and I was really happy for an instant.
