She also added that Ailes argued that she was not politically conservative enough for the network and wanted her to ask questions that weren’t “fact-based.”
“The sexual harassment was the least of it,” Camerota told Profile host Audie Cornish. “There was sexual harassment and there was emotional harassment. And there was sort of bullying and there was ideological harassment.”
She accused Ailes of sexual harassment alongside 20 other women. Ailes however resigned after former anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit alleging that she had been fired for turning down his sexual advances.
In May 2017 at age 77, Ailes died.
