‘A pattern at Fox News’

It is well-known that Fox News is President Donald Trump’s and the Republican’s favorite news network.

In fact, Trump accuses all other major news networks of broadcasting “fake news.” But I am beginning to see a pattern at Fox News.

What do Trump, Roger Ailes, former CEO of Fox News, and Bill O’Reilly, former host of Fox News’ most popular show, have in common?

Well, last year, Roger Ailes, the CEO of Fox News was fired for the sexual harassment of women who worked at Fox News.

Now it has been announced that O’Reilly and Fox News have paid out over $13 million to five women to settle sexual harassment claims. And of course, Trump himself boasted on an “Access Hollywood” tape of committing various sexual harassments against women too crude to print after which dozens of women came forward with their own experiences of being sexually harassed by Trump.

Donald Trump has called both Ailes and O’Reilly “good men.”

I cannot call any of these three sexual predators “good men.” However, these three men seem to think that powerful men should not be held accountable.
