Fox News Employees Were Unaware of Harassment Hotline

FOX employees unaware of harassment hotlineWhen multiple allegations of sexual harassment by Bill O’Reilly were reported publicly this month, representatives for 21st Century Fox and Mr. O’Reilly pointed to the company’s anonymous hotline, saying no employee had ever used it to make a complaint about the Fox News host.

But employment law experts say that a company’s hotline often exists in obscurity, and that even when it is well-known among employees, it can be a tool for suppressing harassment allegations rather than dealing with them.

A moment of truth amid the fake news for Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg. “For election day influence, Twitter ruled social media,” fumed the New York Times. “Donald Trump won Twitter, and that was a giveaway that he might win the presidency,” claimed Business Insider. And “Donald Trump won because of Facebook,” wrote Max Read in New York magazine.

Twitter was castigated mainly because it was Trump’s favoured channel and his tweeting provided a masterclass in how to exploit it.

In the end, fortunately, I dodged jail time without giving in.

Now, no longer young, I once again face a moment that calls for me to put my own needs aside and to stand once more for principle.
