Federal Judge Tosses Former Fox News Host Andrea Tantaros’ Harassment Lawsuit

A federal judge on Friday threw out former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros’ harassment lawsuit against the network.

Tantaros, who had once worked as a host of “The Five,” filed a Manhattan Federal Court lawsuit in April 2017, alleging she was repeatedly hit with menacing missives — and outright threats from bogus social media accounts.

Tantaros also alleged that the late Fox News CEO Roger Ailes — who left the company in July 2016 during a sexual harassment scandal — got his goons to spy on her with electronic surveillance. Fox henchmen also broke into her computer and installed spyware, claimed Tantaros, who of late has been representing herself in the lawsuit.

In dismissing the suit Friday, Manhattan Federal Judge George Daniels said Tantaros’ latest civil complaint was “based primarily on speculation and conjecture.”

“Moreover, she fails to adequately make out the basic elements of her claims,” he wrote.

A Fox News spokeswoman said the decision speaks for itself.

Tantaros could not immediately be reached for comment.
