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.
