"The allegations put forth yesterday on Gawker regarding my Fox News colleagues are disgusting," she said Thursday.

Here is Ms. Ratner’s full statement in response to the allegations:

“My life partner Cholene and I have known Roger Ailes and Bill Shine for close to 20 years.  We have been to their homes and Bill Shine and his family have been to ours.  Countless times Roger Ailes and Fox News have supported our charities and nonprofit organizations.
