The Feds have sued Fox News for allegedly retaliating against Catherine Herrity for complaining about unequal pay and unequal job conditions based on her age and gender. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)says Fox News Channel reporter Catherine Herridge filed an internal complaint about allegedly discriminatory practices in 2007. Fox News supposedly found no bias but later included language in Ms. Herrity’s contract that would prevent her from complaining. She refused to sign her contract.
According to Huffington Post:
The network agreed to remove the language after she complained to the EEOC.
The EEOC seeks unspecified monetary damages and a court order enjoining Fox from retaliating against other employees.
Should we be surprised? Is there any woman on the show who is not attractive? Men certainly aren’t held to the same standard of attractness. Other than Shep, there seems to be an absence of male counterparts. There seems to be a hook for the men…pretty women with cleavage and leg. Bring in the men and the women will follow? Is that how it works? Probably the good car chases don’t hurt either.
Does Catherine Herrity still work for Faux News or has she been turned out to pasture?
