Eboni K. Williams Fox News
Eboni co-hosted Fox News Specialists since 2015 but she left in 2018. In 2019 during an interview on the radio show “The Breakfast Club,” she said Fox has a reputation for bigotry and racism “for very good reason.”
She said the key to understanding the widely watched conservative network was in making sense of its founder Roger Ailes. Ailes died at the age of 77 in 2017, a year after leaving the network amid a sexual misconduct scandal. She said Ailes had only one mission in mind for the network ― and that was “the demonizing of the other.” It was “literally the purpose of why the network was founded.”
“I don’t know what his beliefs are, but what he knew was it would be very profitable. OK, when you find a fear-based thing like that and you can capitalize on it, in a unique way, no one had ever done this before.”
She added that she went there because she felt she was going to be a savior of sorts.
“I went there because I felt I was going to be a savior of sorts, and talk to the people in the middle, that still watch that network because whether we like it or not, Fox is No. 1 for a reason.”

“If a woman is physically attractive, there is often a presumption that she lacks the substance and smarts necessary to provide leadership in business and other endeavors. This narrative implies that being pretty and being capable are mutually exclusive. But… Eboni Williams rejects that narrative.

According to Williams, the knee-jerk reaction for most women is to feel shamed by the potential advantage their beauty grants them, but Williams says it’s okay for women to take full advantage of the most immediate and obvious attribute at their disposal, encouraging women to embrace their beauty as positive and powerful.”
