Fox News is once again in the middle of crisis.
Now the network could be brought down from the inside.
And that’s because this shocking sexual misconduct lawsuit could spell the end for Fox News.
Fox Nation on-air personality Britt McHenry is suing Fox News over allegations of sexual harassment.
McHenry claims that former “un-PC” co-host ex-WWE professional wrestler Tyus Murdoch sent her sexually suggestive text messages that McHenry alleges constituted harassment.
USA Today reports:
In a lawsuit filed in New York Tuesday and obtained by USA TODAY, McHenry alleges she was “crudely sexually harassed” by Murdoch through “sexually inappropriate comments to her in person, and also via text message.”
When McHenry told the network, Fox “punished the victim and rewarded the harasser” by “stripping her of professional opportunities while simultaneously promoting” Murdoch, the complaint says.
The lawsuit names Fox News Network, Fox Entertainment Group, News Corp., Fox Corp. and Murdoch, among others. McHenry’s allegations include gender discrimination and sexual harassment, retaliation, aiding and abetting gender discrimination and retaliation as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress.
McHenry’s lawsuit drops just as the Hollywood smear movie “Bombshell” hits theaters.
“Bombshell” is the story of how former Fox anchors Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly took down former Fox News President Roger Ailes over allegations of sexual harassment.
McHenry’s lawsuit is an early Christmas present to Fox News haters.
Fox critics seize on any scandal or hint of sexual misconduct to ramp up pressure on the top-rated cable news channel to bring in new leadership that Fox detractors hope will push the network to become a liberal fake news channel like CNN in order to change the press narrative surrounding Fox.
