FOX News is currently reeling from allegations that CEO Roger Ailes sexually harassed former anchor Gretchen Carlson. But according to emails provided to The Business Standard News by FOX insiders, Ailes may be relying on sexual aids to keep up his libido.

“Ailes is old and overweight,” said an FOX News insider, who demanded to remain anonymous. “He swallows handfuls of industrial-strength Viagra, the kind you have to get from Mexico.”

Another FOX News insider, who went by “MJ,” corroborated this.

“It’s not just Viagra, it’s penis pumps, Rhino horn, anything to get him up. Apparently, it takes a lot to get him to half mast,” said MJ in an email.

Carlson shocked the media world on Wednesday when she announced her lawsuit against FOX. She claimed Ailes said he could make life easier for her if she had sex with him. When she refused, she was taken off “FOX and Friends,” given less high-profile assignments and eventually fired.

FOX News has sold itself as the home of “conservative values.” However, in 2004 FOX News commentator Bill O’Reilly settled a sexual harassment suit with a female coworker for $5 million. Andrea Mackris claimed O’Reilly, like Ailes, had pestered her to have sex with him. She also provided phone records of his sexual requests.
