Another Lawsuit For Fox News

From this morning's New York Times...

Andrea Tantaros, a former Fox News host, charged in a lawsuit filed Monday that top executives at the network, including the man who replaced Roger Ailes, punished her for complaining about sexual harassment by Mr. Ailes.

The suit by Ms. Tantaros, filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, is the latest round in a contentious volley that began in late winter, when Fox claimed she had breached her employment contract by writing a book without receiving network approval.

“Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny,” Ms. Tantaros’s suit says.

I don't doubt her story, but I did once hear her participate (with gusto) in the discussion on Fox News about the softening of our society because of political correctness. That term has lost all meaning. People who are polite, respectful, tolerant, and don't harrass women or minorities are not being politically correct. That's just called being a nice person.
