Today is a day that ends with Y so it's time for another lawsuit against Fox News.
Yet another employee has filed a lawsuit against Fox alleging a long pattern of racial discrimination that was ignored by executives.
The employee, Monica Douglas, Fox News’ manager for credit collections, alleges that she was subjected to years of racist slurs by Fox’s longtime comptroller, Judy Slater. Among the allegations, Douglas asserts that Slater complained she had “black eyes” as opposed to the “Aryan race” who have blue eyes and blond hair; called her Brooklyn neighborhood “the murder capital of the world”; and expressed “an unwillingness to even be near black people.”
What we now know is that racial discrimination lawsuits filed by (3 and counting) black employees are actually tied to the ongoing Roger Ailes scandal.
According to Monica Douglas's lawsuit, network executives protected their insanely-racist comptroller Judy Slater because she "knows too much" about the network's secret legal settlements paid out to the victims of Roger Ailes.
That neatly ties this whole shitshow together, doesn't it? Deplorable people protecting other deplorable people because they all know each other's incriminating secrets.
I was going to say it reminds me of the Trump regime, but it's really the other way around, isn't it? Fox News gave birth to Trumpism. It's only fitting that the Republican administration be emblematic of the network that created it.
