Cathy Areu's Lawsuit Against Tucker Carlson is Already Falling Apart

Readers will no doubt be shocked to learn that Cathy "The Liberal Sherpa" Areu's lawsuit accusing Tucker Carlson of sexual harassment is falling apart.

It had a weak foundation from the very beginning:

Now, it's starting to crumble:

From The Spectator:
A lawyer for Eckhart and Areu admitted to The Spectator that errors were made in the filing, and The Spectator has learned that Carlson’s wife was with him the evening Areu claims that he told her he would be alone.

Areu, who claims that she was sexually harassed by Carlson, says that her last appearance on Carlson’s program in 2018 was prior to ‘the annual Christmas party’, which has been reported by other outlets as referring to the network’s party. According to Areu, ‘the show was filmed live in New York City and Mr Carlson was in New York City at the studio.’

Fox News’s 2018 Christmas party took place on December 10, 2018, according to social media posts from multiple FNC employees.

A lawyer for Areu claimed in an email to me that his client’s version of events occurred on December 10, 2018, and added that it was the night of the Tucker Carlson Tonight Christmas party. ‘The TCT annual Christmas party was on Dec 10. That’s the day it happened,’ the lawyer said. That is inconsistent with the fact that the network-wide Christmas party took place that evening.

A review of TV clipping service Grabien found that Areu did not even appear on Carlson’s program on December 10, 2018, which was filmed in Washington, DC, not New York City. Carlson was in DC the following night, December 11, as well to attend the annual Daily Caller Christmas party (I attended that party and spoke to Carlson there).
In fact, Areu’s only appearance in December 2018 was on the 28th, three days after the Christmas holiday and when the program was guest hosted by Mark Steyn. Carlson made a brief appearance on that show, but was at his DC studio and never appeared on air with Areu.

The last time Areu would have appeared on Carlson’s program in 2018 when he was hosting in New York City was on November 30.

A lawyer for Areu responded to these inconsistencies by asserting that Areu did appear on Carlson’s program from New York City on December 10, 2018, yet sent me a link a YouTube video that was posted nine days prior on December 1, 2018. This is the segment that took place on November 30, 2018. The lawyer insisted that the person who uploaded the video to YouTube must have manually changed the upload date.

[...] The lawsuit says Carlson retaliated against Areu’s rejection of his ‘advances’ by limiting her appearances on his program. In 2019, for example, the lawsuit says she only appeared three times. A review of Grabien shows that Areu appeared on the program at least five times in 2019: March 1, March 21, May 24, August 20, and November 6.
It goes on, there's more in their full report.

Eckhart meanwhile claims Henry "groomed" her (as though she was a small child) even though she was in her mid and late 20's.

Incidentally, folks noticed on Twitter that Areu was rewarded with a blue checkmark (which Twitter stopped handing out many months ago) after making these allegations (Twitter also artificially boosted the story through their new fake trending "What’s happening" tab).

Meanwhile, here Areu is in her own words on October 23, 2019 saying Tucker Carlson "has always been polite to me!"
