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."
