Worse and Worse

Do you know who Abby Grossberg is? I did not until this morning. Most people probably won’t know about her for a while yet given the wall-to-wall coverage on Trump. Maybe not wall-to-wall on Fox Entertainment. You will know about her shortly.

Grossberg is (if not already, soon to be, was) a Fox producer. She was a senior booking producer for Maria Bartiromo and then head of booking for Tucker Carlson. She has just filed a lawsuit against Fox claiming that Fox lawyers ‘coerced’ her into providing misleading testimony in the $1.6 billion Dominion lawsuit against Fox. The lawsuit states as follows,

“Fox News Attorneys acted as agents and at the behest of Fox News to misleadingly coach, manipulate, and coerce Ms. Grossberg to deliver shaded and/or incomplete answers during her sworn deposition testimony, which answers were clearly to her reputational detriment but greatly benefitted Fox News,”

Wow, just wow. Fox in turn has countersued Grossberg, with Fox issuing the following statement.

“Ms. Grossberg has threatened to disclose FOX News Media’s attorney-client privileged information and we have filed a temporary restraining order to protect our rights,”

Apparently, Grossberg’s lawyers recently shared draft versions of her civil complaint to Fox. Fox has asked a judge that this not be released to the public, given that the complaint contains,

“…pages of allegations purportedly summarizing and quoting communications that Defendant had with Fox News’ attorneys,”

Grossberg’s lawsuit does contain allegations. Allegations include Fox executives calling Fox’s own Bartiromo a crazy bitch and menopausal Also when Grossberg started working for Carlson the workspace there had a poster of Nancy Pelosi in a plunging bathing suit revealing her cleavage. Her lawsuit states,

“Grossberg was mortified by what she was witnessing and began to experience a sinking feeling in her stomach as it became apparent how pervasive the misogyny and drive to embarrass and objectify women was among the male staff at [‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’],”

Just simply wow. Just when you think it can’t get worse for Fox, it does. The Dominion trial begins in under a month.
