The former Alaska Governor said the corporate culture at the cable news network “obviously has to change” following Bill O’Reilly‘s dishonorable discharge this week.
During a Thursday appearance on The Lead, the 53-year-old said no woman should have to put up with any kind of “intimidating work space” — yet she seemingly took issue with how the multiple women of Fox News handled their harassment situations.
Palin explained to CNN‘s Jake Tapper that any woman who is getting harassed “needs to stand up and do something about it” and “not stick around for a paycheck for years and years” and then complain about it after the fact.
Damn. Do we detect some shade thrown at Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson?
Donald Trump‘s pal went on to say women enduring harassment should be “blowing the whistle” so that the culture will change, continuing:
“As a strong woman, I say we should feel more empowered than that and we should take a stand. And get out of the place or, you know, blow the whistle on whoever is the perpetrator doing the bad stuff so the culture will change.”
Seeing as how Palin is a former Fox News contributor herself, Tapper wondered if the network’s gross culture had anything to do with her exit in 2015.
So, did Palin ever experience sexual harassment during her stint on Fox News? Well, she didn’t really say — but we think her non-answer speaks for itself!
