At the outset of the Roger Ailes investigation, right after Gretchen Carlson lawsuit hit the papers, I said:1/ I never heard of the sexual harassment allegations – no one ever came to me and said anything to me about it – not once;2/ I never saw it3/ It never happened to meand4/ I said that Gretchen Carlson was unhappy when she was at Fox News (she told me that a few years back when we both happened to be in London covering the same story but never said it was sexual harassment.)What I said above was true when I said it …and it is true now.In the meantime, all sorts of motives and intentions have been assigned to me.I did not defend Roger Ailes nor did I condemn him. I just stated what I knew or did not know. Period.
