Jesse Watters: Women Reporters Sleep With Sources ‘All the Time’

Fox News host Jesse Watters insisted on Wednesday that it is an everyday occurrence for women journalists to have sex with their sources in order to get scoops, claiming it “happens all the time.”

“Just as an example, this happens all the time,” the Fox News host declared. “Ali Watkins was a reporter for many, many years at many distinguished publications. She slept with one of her sources, allegedly, for four years and broke a lot of scoops according to this Politico report here.”

After bringing up one real-life example of a female journalist having an affair with a Washington insider, Watters reiterated that this “happens a lot” before wondering why Eastwood is getting grief over it.

“It happens a lot in movies and TV shows,” he exclaimed. “Just a list right here. Fletch!”
