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

Published

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.

Published

on

The United States announced Friday that it was sending military reinforcements to the Gulf region following attacks on Saudi oil facilities that it attributes to Iran, just hours after President Donald Trump ordered new sanctions on Tehran.

Trump said the sanctions were the toughest-ever against another country, but indicated he did not plan a military strike, calling restraint a sign of strength.

The Treasury Department renewed action against Iran's central bank after US officials said Tehran carried out weekend attacks on rival Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure, which triggered a spike in global crude prices.
