The popular comedian and Fox News staff, Billy O’Reilly as well as the actor, Dean Cain were also named for harassing Andrea Tantaros. The journalist also revealed that their sexual advances took a toll on her career as she was subjected to what she called ”graveyard appearances” during that time.
However, after battling to prove her case in court, the Fox News staff did not get the verdict she desired. Her lawsuit was annulled in 2018 by Georg B. Daniels who was presiding on the case. He said he ruled out the case because it did not have any concrete evidence to support the claims under the provisions of Law and Crime.
After this incidence, we saw less of Andrea Tantaros in Fox News both in the career front and on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. However, prior to this event, she usually uploaded posts about the ongoing sexual harassment case proceedings. It is also known that she Tweeted her last tweet on 12 November 2016.

In recent times, it is also uncertain whether the journalist will be portrayed in the film Bombshell which is expected to be released soon. The movie which had Hollywood acts like Nicole Kidman playing Clarson, Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly, and Margot Robbie as Kayla Pospisil revolves around women working in Fox News Network who had accused Roger Ailes of sexual harassment. However, the list of female employees does not include that of Andrea Tantaros. Moreso, the journalist was omitted from the mini-sitcom, The Loudest Voice which was centered on the claims by Gretchen Carlson against Fox News Network.
What is Andrea Tantaros Doing Now?
The former Fox News employee Andrea Tantaros has had a tough time fighting to get justice since 2016. The journalist even revealed that the lawsuit against Fox News has cost her up to a million dollars. However, all these do not seem to stall her as we see that she intends to use the newly enacted law in New York about sexual harassment cases not being arbitrary. More so, it is known that this law which was passed by Governor Andrew Cuomo in April 2018 was influenced by the claims made by Gretchen Carlson against Fox News CEO, Roger Ailes. The case was taking a direction in which Carlson’s lawsuit will be thrown into arbitration hence the law was enacted to prevent it from occurring or else, it will be glaring that the law is weak in the protection of female employees treated abusively at their respective workplaces.
To date, Andrea Tantaros still maintains her claim that Ailes usually referred to her body in demeaning ways when she rejected his sexual advances. More so, he will make sure that she was given on air-time slot which is considered to be ‘graveyard’ – that is when the audience might not be chanced to watch the show. In addition to this, the former Fox News employee Andrea Tantaros revealed that the shamed comedian, Bill O’Reilly who admitted he was guilty of sexually harassing women in Fox News, did the same to her.
As of now, the journalist is doing all she can to prevent her case from being sidelined as arbitrary. Andrea intends to take the case to New York City, where the arbitration law concerning sexual harassment has been enacted. However, the Fox News network has refused to reveal what its next action will be if Andrea Tantaros’ petition is granted. They only gave a statement that they would leave the case to the court to decide and it is via the legal system they intend to fight Andrea’s petition.
