Fox News agreed to pay $1 million in fines and other penalties as a result of violating New York’s Human Rights Law.
The Daily Beast reported:
in July 2016, Rupert Murdoch’s media empire has effectively admitted to ongoing misconduct that includes sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation against victimized employees, and has agreed to pay a million-dollar fine for what New York City’s Commission on Human Rights called “a pattern of violating of the NYC Human Rights Law.”
The settlement agreement, reached last week with the human rights commission, contains the largest-ever financial penalty assessed in the agency’s six-decade history, and also requires Fox News to remove mandatory confidential arbitration clauses from the contracts of on-air talent along with other employees and contributors for a period of four years when they file legal claims under the city’s human-rights law outside of the company’s internal process.
Fox News wants Americans to forget about the years-old scandal of sexual harassment and misconduct that rocked its network. However, it seems that Fox News has not made any significant changes.
While the conservative cable news network promotes family values and religion on a daily basis, it runs a toxic work environment that was found to violate human rights.
Who would have thought that the same network that pumps Tucker Carlson into millions of homes every night is also violating human rights?
Fox is not news. But it is committing crimes against humanity.
