Yet another Fox News personality accused of sexual misconduct: report

Published

on

On Tuesday, The Daily Beast reported that Tyrus, the former WWE wrestler who hosted Fox Nation’s “un-PC,” was dismissed after co-host Britt McHenry filed a sexual harassment complaint with Fox News management.

Tyrus had reportedly send McHenry multiple lewd, unwanted text messages — ironically, something that he himself had warned his viewers never to do on his show: “Something could go wrong … You could go from sending a message about lunch to sitting in HR.”

Born George Murdoch, Tyrus previously served as a bodyguard for Snoop Dogg and was a frequent guest on Greg Gutfeld’s Fox News show, where Gutfeld endearingly called him his “massive sidekick.”

The incident marks the latest in a series of sexual misconduct scandals at Fox News. The late chairman and CEO Roger Ailes was forced out of the network in 2016 over harassment allegations, followed the next year by primetime megastar Bill O’Reilly after it emerged that he had paid out millions of dollars in settlements to women for inappropriate behavior. Fox commentator Eric Bolling was also fired after his colleagues complained about lewd text messages.

“While we are not at liberty to discuss the details of any employee matter, we follow strict protocols when matters such as these are brought to our attention, and we make no exceptions. The process works because of the extensive systems and measures we have instituted. This situation was independently investigated and we consider the matter resolved. We respect the confidentiality of all involved,” a spokesperson for Fox News said in a statement.

Trump’s still pushing the bogus CrowdStrike conspiracy theory: But why and where did it come from?

Published

on

Last week, the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee shoehorned into the permanent record of the impeachment inquiry a conspiracy theory about the “real” attackers against the 2016 election. This defiant linkage to agitprop of dubious origin was yet another chapter in the GOP’s hopeless descent into complete make-believe.

This article first appeared in Salon.

Before we dig into the madness, there’s a history here that needs to be underscored, since the Republican appetite for crapola didn’t quite begin with Donald Trump.
