Ex-Fox employee: I was barred from investigating Trump-Russia — and fired for reporting harassment

Published

on

A former Fox News radio correspondent claims that the network barred her from traveling to Moscow to report on potential connections between President Donald Trump and Russia.

According to Bloomberg, ex-Fox employee Jessica Golloher testified before the British Parliament Monday as they were hearing arguments for and against the network’s acquisition of the European Sky Plc. network, and was one of multiple former employees that discussed the network’s bias.

“Fox didn’t let me go to Moscow to dig into Trump’s Russian connections, even when I offered to pay my own way,” Golloher, who is now baed in Israel but previously worked in Moscow, said in her testimony. “You can’t do in-depth reporting if you’re not there.”

“Fox is just buying what the White House is selling,” she continued.

Earlier in 2017, Golloher filed a lawsuit against the company claiming she was fired for using their harassment hotline.

Fox has denied both her claim of gender discrimination and her allegation that they wouldn’t allow her to travel to Moscow.

“Jessica Golloher’s claims are without merit. Her allegations of discrimination and retaliation are baseless. We will vigorously defend the matter,” a spokesperson said.

As Bloomberg noted, this is the second time this year Fox has been accused of shifting attention away from Trump’s links to Russia on the administration’s behest. In August, a lawsuit alleged the administration pushed the network to publish about murdered Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich to divert attention from the Russia probe.

‘People’s lives will be lost’: Psychiatrist warns ‘sociopath’ Trump is ‘getting worse’ — and failing in coronavirus response

Published

on

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

‘Something really rotten’: Here’s the evidence of extensive voter suppression in Georgia’s notorious 2018 election

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.”
