Fox News pays million dollar fine after investigation by the Human Rights Commission

The Fox News Network has agreed to a deal that will cause them to pay a $1 million penalty after the New York City Commission on Human Rights investigated the news giant, according to The Hill.

 Accusations against the network came in what the Human Rights Commission called a “series of high-profile reports” that alleged the company posted a culture of sexual harassment and retaliation.

In their statement, the group said that the settlement was the highest of its kind ordered for the violation in question against a news network by a civil rights enforcement agency. 

“We are pleased to reach an amicable resolution of this legacy matter,” a spokesperson for Fox News Media said in a statement to The Hill. 

“FOX News Media has already been in full compliance across the board, but cooperated with the New York City Commission on Human Rights to continue enacting extensive preventive measures against all forms of discrimination and harassment,” the spokesperson added.

The investigation by the Human Rights Commission began in 2016 after employees accused chairman and CEO Roger Ailes of misconduct with female employees. 

Ailes, who was thought to be responsible for both making Fox News the top in it’s class and bringing it down into the mud, left the network amid the allegations in late 2016 and died in May of 2017 at the age of 77.

According to a report in the Daily Beast, the settlement was reached last week and the network agreed to waive forced arbitration with its employees and agreed to hold regular sexual harassment and prevention training for its New York City employees. 

Additionally, the network will be required to implement a policy for employees to file complaints and report discrimination and harassment that has to be in place for at least the next two years.

You are so right. Everything a Democrat touches is tainted by their overall rabid obsession that “they know best”. Doesn’t matter whether it is about politics, journalism, schools, and/or policy – the Democrats will never stop trying to indoctrinate and control everyone else. Thank heavens Republicans and Moderates are finally standing up and fighting back! Hopefully, it will be enough to save our wonderful country from further destruction.
