Murdoch: Fox News Fired Kimberly Guilfoyle For Inappropriate Behaviour- In the summer of 2018, Kimberly Guilfoyle abruptly quit Fox News, disputing accusations that she was fired for sexual misconduct.
In 2020, The New Yorker reported that Fox News Chairman Rupert Murdoch wanted her fired because of the claims. Dominion Voting Systems’ lawsuit against Fox News highlighted Murdoch’s suspicions about Guilfoyle, a former Trump campaign aide.
Murdoch “insisted” Fox News terminate Guilfoyle “for bad behavior” in a 2020 election communication.
Although he meant her involvement with Newsmax, Murdoch wrongly labeled Guilfoyle “Kimberly Strassel,” a Wall Street Journal editorial columnist. The competing news network promoted baseless conspiracy theories that Donald Trump lost to Joe Biden owing to electoral fraud even more than Fox News.
Newsmax is bad! Rupert emailed. “Being counseled by Don jr girlfriend.’s Kimberley Strassel, whom I demanded we fire for inappropriate behavior. None of us will join her. Newsmax needs cash. Searched the world, unsuccessfully.”
Murdoch refers to Guilfoyle as “Don Jr.’s girlfriend” and “fired”; Strassel still writes for the Wall Street Journal. Since 2018, Guilfoyle and Donald Trump Jr. have campaigned for Trump’s 2020 re-election and helped him spread his election-theft claims.
Both spoke at Trump’s Jan. 6 rally before the violent attack at the U.S. Capitol to stop congress from declaring the election results.
After Fox, Guilfoyle wrote for Newsmax. Newsmax and One American News Network promoted voter fraud lies. Dominion contends in its complaint that Fox News hosts and executives doubted such statements but promoted them to avoid losing viewers to Newsmax or OAN.
. A former assistant accused Guilfoyle of sexual harassment, forcing her to depart Fox News, where she had worked since the mid-2000s. Before the New Yorker investigation, Guilfoyle left Fox to avoid conflicts of interest with Trump Jr.
In a 42-page draught complaint, reporter Jane Mayer alleged that Guilfoyle showed lewd photos of male genitalia to colleagues, regularly discussed sexual matters at work, urged the assistant “to submit to a Fox employee’s demands for sexual favors,” and exposed herself to the assistant while asking for a body critique.
According to well-informed sources, Guilfoyle paid the former assistant up to $4 million to avoid a trial to cover up the charges.
Guilfoyle responded to the New Yorker piece by referencing her tenure as a prosecutor in San Francisco in the early 2000s, before and after her marriage to then-San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom.

“In my 30-year career working for the SF District Attorney’s Office, the LA District Attorney’s Office, in media and politics, I have never engaged in workplace misconduct,” she claimed.
In a CNN Axe Files audio interview, Newsom revealed his political differences with Guilfoyle, his 2001–2006 wife. He stated she was a “different person” when they were married and became a right-wing star after joining Fox News in 2006.
