In an interview Tuesday on ABC’s Good Morning America, former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros said Fox “has plenty of money” and suggested that “they’ve bought off a lot of women. What they don’t have is accountability.”

In August, Tantaros filed a lawsuit claiming the network “operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny.”

Fox responded, saying Tantaros was “not a victim; she is an opportunist.”

On GMA, Tantaros said former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes “sexually harassed me numerous times. I was walking to a taping once and just said simply hello to him, and he said, ‘We need to get you a tighter dress.’”

Asked why she thanked Ailes in her book, Tantaros said “you had to thank Roger Ailes or your book didn’t get published.”
