Barr also noted that & # 39; there was some moaning in the room & # 39 ;, following Zucker's alleged comments.

Camerota, who spoke out in 2017 about being sexually harassed by Fox News boss Roger Ailes after his scandalous departure from the network, told the Daily Mail in an email statement that, according to her, Zucker's comments were not intimidating.

& # 39; It is the oldest joke in the book made to & # 39; morning anchors, both men and women, & # 39; said Camerota's comments from Zucker, according to a CNN statement.

& # 39; I hear it a few times a week from people in the supermarket. I don't think that's intimidation and I didn't find it deaf, & the anchor added.
