‘A sanctuary for sexual harassers’: Host Britt McHenry escalates her battle against Fox News

Published

on

Fox Nation personality Britt McHenry has announced a lawsuit against Fox News and former pro-wrestler-turned cable news personality Tyrus for sexual harassment.

TMZ reported Tuesday that McHenry alleged the network allows for “sanctuary for sexual harassers” and let Tyrus continue to crudely harass her with text messages that included comments about her legs and behind as well as photos of his genitals. He also allegedly showed investigators photos and text messages of her cleavage and nearly bare breasts.

She said that the messages made it appear as though the two were flirting with each other, but she said that the photos and texts were doctored and not really her.

Documents obtained say that the network retaliated against her after the complaints by refusing to investigate, shunned her, barred her from company events and refused to allow her to appear on other Fox News shows.

Fox has been enthralled in multiple sexual harassment scandals over the years, to such a degree that a new feature film is out talking about the problem at the network. McHenry alleged that the so-called “zero tolerance” policy is a farce and that the network’s only “zero tolerance” was for her four complaints.

Despite the over $100 million in payouts for sexual harassment, “Fox News remains a sanctuary for sexual harassers, coddling and enabling the men who abuse female employees,” McHenry said.

MSNBC’s ‘demotion’ of ‘feckless’ Chuck Todd celebrated: ‘Hurray! More Nicolle, less Chuck’

Published

MSNBC host Chuck Todd was moved to an earlier timeslot where his show, "Meet the Press Daily," will likely earn lower ratings. Meanwhile, Nicolle Wallace seems to have been promoted to a two-hour timeslot leading into primetime.

Wallace, who has extensive experience in Washington, previously served in George W. Bush's White House until abandoning the GOP as the era of Trump came to power.

Todd has made several missteps where he's been unwilling to press GOP leaders who lie openly and obviously on camera.

George Conway blasts ‘blundering cheat’ Trump in new op-ed: ‘His name should live in infamy’

Published

on

Prominent conservative attorney George T. Conway III has written yet another Washington Post op-ed blasting President Donald Trump.

"If there’s one thing we know about President Trump, it’s that he lies and he cheats. Endlessly," Conway wrote. "And shamelessly. But still, mostly, incompetently."

"So it should have come as no surprise that Trump finally went where no U.S. president had ever gone before. In a tweet last week, he actually suggested that the country 'Delay the Election.' That trial balloon was a brazen effort to see if he can defraud his way into four more years in the White House," he explained. "And why not try? After all, Trump has managed to swindle his way through life, on matters large and small, essential and trivial."

Trump’s ‘delay the election’ tweet laid the groundwork for him and his followers to have an excuse if he loses

Published

on

Writing in The New York Times this Monday, Gail Collins and Bret Stephens discuss their contention that President Trump is seeing the writing on the wall regarding the 2020 election, an analysis born from his recent tweet where he suggests delaying the election.

According to Stephens, Trump's tweet is a sign that he knows "in his heart" that he's going to lose in November.

"He’s laying the groundwork not for a coup but for an excuse, both for himself and for his followers," Stephens says. "It creates a mythology to explain defeat, attack Joe Biden and keep the Trump family relevant in the Republican Party. The fact that he’d pull a stunt like this is another reason it’s so important that he lose in a landslide in November."
