‘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.

As the United States Senate conducted an impeachment trial for the commander-in-chief, Tannehill posted an extended Twitter thread examining the situation in America from her perspective as a researcher studying the conditions that lead to genocide.

Here is what she wrote:

I study genocide. It's been a theme in my academic endeavours for nearly 30 years. More accurately, I study the conditions in the lead up to genocide, be they cultural, social, political, economic, etc... 1/n

Year of Rat hails easy ride for Donald Trump — but bumps for Harry and Meghan

Published

on

As the world prepares to welcome the Year of the Rat, feng shui masters predict a lucky year for Donald Trump, but warn Harry and Meghan's futures are less certain as they make a bid for freedom.

Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.

The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.

But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.

John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.

"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
