Accuser says ex-Fox exec Bill Shine tried to have her committed to psych hospital against her will

Published

on

Bill Shine, the former co-president of Fox News, has been accused of trying to put a woman into a psychiatric hospital against her will.

Laurie Luhn, the former Fox News director of corporate and special events, tells the Wall Street Journal that former Fox boss Roger Ailes harassed and “psychologically tortured” her for years. Shine, who was Ailes’ right-hand man, took several steps to discourage Luhn from going public — including “calling her father to arrange her placement in a psychiatric-care facility in Texas against her wishes.”

Luhn eventually received a settlement of $3.11 million after complaining internally about Ailes and Shine’s behavior in 2011.

Shine was ousted from his job last week after a group of women at Fox News reportedly circulated a petition calling for him to be fired. Earlier this year, longtime Fox News contributor Julie Roginsky filed a lawsuit against the network that claimed Shine “aided and abetted” sexual harassment committed by former Fox News boss Roger Ailes, which is very similar to the accusations being leveled by Luhn.

Shine’s departure last week marked the third major firing of longtime Fox personnel in the wake of the network’s multiple sexual harassment scandals, along with Roger Ailes and longtime star host Bill O’Reilly.

The ad then recalls the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape where President Donald Trump brags about being able to sexually assault women, because "when you're a star they let you do it."

Published

on

The women of "The View" broke out into an intense debate as they discussed Fox News' Tucker Carlson and his aide that was recently outed for a series of racist online stories.

Conservative co-host Meghan McCain said that she abhors "cancel culture" and argued that at one time or another everyone on "The View" has been the victim of a "cancel culture" attack.

"When we're thinking about cancel culture it makes me sad there seems to be -- we're in a moment in time where there's not a place for people to come together and have civil debates," said McCain. "I worry about that time when we're all going to be siloed in our corners. I like debating with you guys."
