In the wake of a bombshell report claiming Fox News host Bill O'Reilly has settled multiple sexual harassment cases by paying out millions of dollars over the years at Fox News, the network was hit with another shocker on Monday.
According to New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman and others, Fox News contributor Julie Roginsky has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the network, former chief Roger Ailes, and the network's co-president Bill Shine.

Ailes resigned from his post last year in the midst of a sexual harassment lawsuit from former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson. It was reported that Ailes received a $40 million payout to leave the network.
