Lisa Bloom: NY state just opened new investigation into Fox News for sexual harassment and discrimination

Published

Attorney Lisa Blooom revealed on Monday that the New York State Division of Human Rights is investigating complaints of harassment and discrimination at Fox News.

In a tweet on Monday, Bloom said that the agency’s investigation was based on a complaint filed by her office earlier this year.

The complaint details numerous accounts of sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation by the conservative network.

Bloom has argued that media coverage and high profile firings — like the termination of Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly — should be backed up by government intervention.

“Equality of opportunity is a civil right,” Bloom writes in the complaint. “For women of Fox News, year after year, this right has been abrogated. The world knows about it, but press reports are not enough. We therefore respectfully request that the SDHR conduct a prompt, thorough investigation of the toxic culture at Fox News.”

Published

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
