Over the past few months we’ve been treated to salacious stories of sexual misconduct at Fox News, resulting in resignations of top female on-air talent, the departure of executives Roger Ailes and Bill Shine, and the coup de grace, the end of Bill O’Reilly’s reign as prime time king.One would think that Fox News for whatever reason is ground zero for employee mistreatment. Because you never hear of any wrong doing at say…CNN for example.
Gee why do you think that is? Because there’s apparently a lot more dirt going on over there.
According to the Daily Wire, a massive class-action suit has been filed against the network alleging racial discrimination and is now up to 175 plaintiffs, made up of current and former employees.
CNN? Liberal? Racist? How can that be?The Daily Wire quotes The New York Post: Minority employees had to endure bigoted remarks such as “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?,” according to a complaint by former workers Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr. filed in Atlanta federal court.
Colbert Jr. also claims he was paid thousands less than white colleagues as a manager at the affiliated Turner Broadcasting System.
Henley, a former CNN executive assistant, says she was fired in 2014 for complaining that black employees were being paid less than white counterparts.The number of people now suing CNN is ten times higher than those suing Fox, writes Ken LaCorte on Mediaite — “yet how many stories have you read about that?”
As the Daily Caller points out, good ol’ Jake Tapper has apparently overlooked the lawsuits at his own network glass house as he throws stones at Fox:
When a company sends the clear signal that women are basically sub-human, vile behavior thrives even after top offenders are fired.— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) April 26, 2017
Just amazing this news has managed to miss the attention of the liberal media. Funny how that happens.
