Nothing but a bunch of skirt chasers. No wonder they lied about the news all the time, they didn't have time or the inkling to find the truth.

Fox News (click here) was hit with new sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuits on Monday, adding to the catalog of complaints that has rattled the U.S. cable news network and its corporate parent 21st Century Fox Inc (FOXA.O).

New York City lawyer Douglas Wigdor filed lawsuits in federal court in Manhattan on behalf of Kathleen Lee, a Fox News Radio shift editor who says she was sexually harassed and subjected to "unceasing retaliation" for complaining, and Naima Farrow, who maintains she was fired from her job as an accounts payable coordinator after telling supervisors she was pregnant.

In a third case in the same court, Vidya Mann, a Fox News accounts receivable specialist, said she was taken on as a temporary employee but passed over for permanent jobs in favor of white coworkers.

A spokeswoman at Fox News said the company believes the suits are without merit, noting that the company took prompt action and takes all complaints of discrimination seriously.

The new legal claims come as Fox News is already battling a series of lawsuits that led to the resignations of former chief executive Roger Ailes, who died last week, star anchor Bill O'Reilly and network co-president Bill Shine.

Wigdor said he was also representing an unidentified black information technology employee who was subjected to racially insensitive remarks by Bob Beckel, an on-air host who was fired last week, days after the worker complained....

The American people can find the lies.

Monica, 1999

...Their (FOX News) dream was my nightmare. (click here) My character, my looks and my life were picked apart mercilessly. Truth and fiction mixed at random in the service of higher ratings. My family and I huddled at home, worried about my going to jail — I was the original target of Ken Starr’s investigation, threatened with 27 years for having been accused of signing a false affidavit, obstructing justice, suborning perjury and other crimes — or worse, me taking my own life. Meantime, Mr. Ailes huddled with his employees at Fox News, dictating a lineup of talking heads to best exploit this personal and national tragedy.... 

...In fact, in late 1998, when Keith Olbermann briefly left MSNBC, he expressed disgust with the frequent Lewinsky coverage.

Just as television news was devolving into a modern coliseum, the internet came along and compounded this culture of shame and vitriol....

...Fox asked its viewers to vote on this pressing question: Is Monica Lewinsky an “average girl” or a “young tramp looking for thrills”?

Our world — of cyberbullying and chyrons, trolls and tweets — was forged in 1998. It is, as the historian Nicolaus Mills has put it, a “culture of humiliation,” in which those who prey on the vulnerable in the service of clicks and ratings are handsomely rewarded....

The Lewinsky tabloid scandal is what made the popularity of Fox News soar. It is why every time there is the name Clinton in the news, there is scandal and/or hate attached to it. It is the momentum of the scandal that continues.

Unfortunately, the hate spawned by FOX News during the time Kenneth Starr actually thought he was doing something important lives on past Ailes and now Plutocrats like Trump are capitalizing on it still.

Hate is the Republicans best friend now. Where are the lawsuits? The biggest and brightest Hollywood stars sue these idiots. Where are the earnest leaders that sue these clowns and shut down the 'the scandal.'

Ken Starr never did anything except ruin the reputation of a White House intern and fuel the political machine of the Republicans. The Republicans aren't going to change their evil ways, it serves their purpose.

...The tabloid (The National Enquirer) (click here) has already endorsed Donald Trump and has frequently published “stories” smearing his opponents and bolstering his campaign.

Their latest is a breathless slideshow, entitled “Hillary Clinton’s Secret Health Crisis,” that accuses the Democratic nominee of — deep breath — “suffering from the early stages of the debilitating disease multiple sclerosis,” having “suffered three secret strokes,” and being plagued by a catalogue of “blackouts, falls, memory loss, blinding headaches, vision problems and collapses.”...
