-(cheering, applause)-All right, welcome back.
Now, the water crisis in Flintisn't the only national epidemic
we're covering tonight,because, well...
Yet another bombshell in theRoger Ailes Fox News scandal.
Yep, more bad newsfor the former CEO of Fox News
and mortal descendantof Humpty Dumpty.
You'll rememberthat Ailes resigned last month
after not one,but two female hosts accused him
of sexual harassment.
Now, Ailes himself deniesall the allegations,
but reports suggest thatthis nasty man-- I'm sorry.
...alleged nasty man...
-(applause)-Just Keep It 100, Keep It 100.
Uh, that he got even nastier.
NEWSWOMAN: New York magazine reports that Roger Ailes
spent money from the Fox News budget
to target his enemies.
Sources tell the magazine that he hired operatives
to spy on or smear his foes.
He spied on his enemies?
Well, who areRoger Ailes's enemies
besides decency,direct exposure to sunlight
and Han Solo?
I'm asking.I'm asking the question.
All right, okay, so how exactly
did his wholesurveillance operation work?
NEWSWOMAN: They reportedly worked from an office
Fox insiders call the "black room."
I'm sorry, the black room?
I mean, it's Fox-- shouldn'tthey really be calling it
the "all lives" room?
-(groans, laughter)-Come on.
Am I right?
-(whooping, applause)-Right? What am I... Am I right?
Who am I?
Stop it. Okay.
But I digress. Okay.
Who are these foes thatthey claim Ailes was spying on?
Private investigators tailingsome of his opponents,
as you mentioned, includingjournalists and others.
This stinks to high heaven.
The guy running a news networkis spying on journalists.
There's no bigger sin.
And "others"?What do "others" entail?
What, like peoplewho have criticized him?
I mean, I've criticized him.
Uh, no, man, come on.
There's no way Roger Ailesis spying on me.
Wait. Has that giant shrubalways been there?
(eerie music playing)
Anyway, Ailes couldn't payto have me followed,
given the amount of money
he's about to chalk overto Gretchen Carlson.
Now we know there aresettlement talks underway.
We're talkingmore than $10 million,
some of it possibly to be paidby Roger Ailes.
Gretchen Carlsonmay have been recording Ailes,
may have recordedtheir conversations
to prove that he wassexually harassing her.
So these reports claim thatwhile Ailes was secretly spying
on his enemies, Carlson may havebeen secretly spying on Ailes?
Well, it makes sense.There's plenty of room
to hide the recording devicein Roger's jowl pouch.
Don't you think?
Wait. Hold on a second.
What happenedto that giant shrub?
(eerie music playing)
Hmm. I don't know.
Anyway, the news for Aileshas gotten worse,
as there continue to be mountingclaims about Jabba's mounting.
NEWSMAN: Fox News host Andrea Tantaros
said that she was demoted and taken off the air in April
after reporting former network boss Roger Ailes
for sexual harassment.
Okay, so she reported her bossand was fired.
So to be clear, as soonas you do real reporting at Fox,
you don't fit in.
(laughter, applause, whooping)
That's pretty much how...
pretty much how it works.
But Fox...Fox obviously can't admit
she was let gobecause of the allegations,
especially because that doesn'tjibe with their timeline.
NEWSMAN: That contradicts senior Fox executives
who say they were unaware of any claims against Ailes
until former anchor Gretchen Carlson
filed a lawsuit against him in July.
Fox News told a lie?
I can't believe that.
Okay, look,we pick on Fox News a lot.
You know, for being dishonestand fearmongering
and beating up on the underdogsin America,
but don't tell methat's not justified
when Fox is being dishonest andfearmongering and beating up
on the underdogs in their owncompany, because right now,
I'm not focusingon right-wing politics
or climate change denialor the fact that Bill O'Reilly
thinks all black peoplehave forehead tattoos, uh-uh.
I'm focusing on allegationsthat a company... a-a company
allowed its bossto harass employees,
then spent moneyto keep it secret,
and then, when those samevictims of harassment
tried to do the right thing andspeak out, punished them for it.
That's not fair and balanced.
That's evil and(bleep) disgusting.
(cheers and applause)
Now, let me also say,
there are plentyof sexist people out there
liberal and conservative,who think Gretchen Carlson
and Megyn Kellyand Andrea Tantaros
are nothing morethan a few pairs of long legs.
Shame on their employersfor being among them.
We'll be right back.
(cheers and applause)
