Controversies/Latest news

Carlson complained to her supervisor that one of her co-hosts on Fox & Friends, Steve, had created a hostile working environment by regularly treating her in a sexiest and condescending manner, including by putting his hand on her and pulling her arm down to shoot her on live TV. According to Carlson’s complaint, Doocy “was involved in Carlson’s serious and pervasive sexual harassment pattern and practice.”

President Donald Trump promised Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy that he would not cave on the border wall, presumably after spending this morning shut down hosting his favorite breakfast show.
