Howie Kurtz Complains That Harassment Lawsuits Make Fox News 'Look Like A Terrible Place'

Having a man defend the place against sexual harassment is just so...Foxian.

Nothing says "culture of misogyny" like putting on a man to tell everyone why accusations made by women are bogus and unfair, but Fox News did exactly that this morning.

Howard Kurtz spent some time discussing the newest allegations against Fox News by former host Andrea Tantaros. He is very unhappy.

All the publicity following Ailes' departure has raised questions about the culture at Fox. A 21st Century Fox spokesman told the Times, “we have demonstrated a willingness to act.” However this lawsuit turns out, the inclusion of disparaging gossip about random people was designed to make Fox look like a terrible place. I can tell you as a veteran of this business that Fox is generally a collegial and rewarding place to work. At the same time, there are allegations that some women in the past were put in difficult or uncomfortable situations. And I'm glad the company is addressing that.

No, Howie. It is a terrible place, and you're a terrible person for defending inexcusable conduct against women and dismissing it as "gossip."
