Fox News Pays $10 Million To Settle Racial, Gender Bias Suits


www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2018/05/...


The parent company of Fox News has paid approximately $10 million to settle 18 lawsuits filed by former employees, according to two sources with knowledge of the deal. The cases arose from intense scrutiny of Fox's workplace culture after it was convulsed by a sexual harassment scandal.


The cases primarily involved allegations of racial discrimination against the network, along with several gender bias and retaliation claims. Parent 21st Century Fox and the plaintiffs' attorneys at the law firm Wigdor LLP settled the cases after rounds of mediation and negotiations. Both sides released a brief joint statement announcing the deal, though terms and details were not disclosed.


The larger sexual harassment scandal felled the network's first chairman, the late Roger Ailes, as well as some of its stars, including former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly. Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson's lawsuit led others at Fox to come forward, and, along with disclosures of massive payouts to silence women accusers by Fox and O'Reilly, helped to propel the current #MeToo moment. Filings in other lawsuits supported by additional reporting revealed an organization structured to facilitate sexual harassment of young women by Ailes and a culture that tolerated it in others.

Fox News’ new woman CEO perpetuated company’s culture of sexual harassment: lawsuits


Fox News named Suzanne Scott its new CEO on Thursday — but a lawsuit reveals she’ll bring baggage from the company’s sexual harassment scandals to the position.


The Daily Beast reported that Scott was named in multiple lawsuits against the network and its former head, Roger Ailes, as an enabler of the ex-CEO’s culture of harassment and retaliation for speaking out.
