Things never change at Fox News.

Britt McHenry, a host on Fox News’ streaming service, Fox Nation, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit on Tuesday against the network and one of its on-air personalities, George “Tyrus” Murdoch.
The lawsuit, filed in the Southern District of New York, argued that Fox News retaliated against McHenry after she accused Murdoch, her former Fox Nation co-host and a network contributor, of sexual harassment. It further contended that the probes conducted by outside law firms on behalf of the network were “sham investigations.”
“The last thing I wanted to do was file this lawsuit,” McHenry said in a statement provided by attorney Lisa Bloom’s law firm, which represents her. “But I had to stand up for what’s right for myself and for women.”
In separate statements, Fox News defended its actions and Murdoch denied the allegations.
McHenry’s lawsuit, which seeks monetary damages, alleged that Murdoch displayed “volatile and unpredictable behavior” at work and started sending her sexually suggestive text messages in October 2018.
“I love pony tails and braids you look amazing and it’s a real turn on not that you care but I love it,” one of the text messages said, according to the lawsuit.
“The picture looks so good I would knock up the picture …. crazy sexy love your legs,” said another, according to the lawsuit.
Fox News has been repeatedly sued for sexual harassment, so much so that there is now a Hollywood movie about it coming soon to theaters starring Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, and Charlize Theron.
You would think when something bad happens in aplace of business so often that they make an entire movie about it that the management would work extra hard to lut a stop to it.
But I guess that would be asking Fox News to change what it means to be Fox News.
