The sexual approaches and scandals roaming around the Fox Channel are taking wider prospects as the media community has been highlighting and digging behind further information about the operational climate of the media giant.
The starting point of the public uproar and the media focus on the Fox industry, was following a tremendous sum of 13 million dollars paid to different woman that were sexually harassed by their number one star anchor Mr. Bill O’Reilly.
The court case was therefore dropped but has caused an irreversible backfiring at the prominent host and his employer, turning into a nationwide scandal.
The case of Palin
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was hosting a show on the famous network, was victim of sexual advancement and remarks during her contract that ended in 2015.
The renowned politician, in an interview with Jake Tapper, she refused to comment on the issue, saying: “You can ask them why I’m no longer with Fox. You know, I’m not. I’m not going to speak for them. My contract wasn’t renewed, that’s the line”.
Though, the recent history records of the channel confirm the allegations as Don Imus of Fox Business asked Fox News Chris Wallace about an interview he was going to conduct with the Republican woman: “When you interview her, will she be sitting on your lap?” where Chris Wallace laughed and responded: “One can only hope!”
The major news network has since been trying to initiate a framework of several apologies, as well changing the hosts that have been embezzled in the scandal. Bill O’Reilly’s contract was ended after being for 21 years on the top of the channel.
Also Chris Wallace official apologized saying: “More than seven years ago, I engaged in a playful discussion with former FOX Business host Don Imus. Immediately, I realized it was an inappropriate comment and apologized to Gov. Palin. She accepted my apology and since then, we have done a number of interviews and had a respectful professional relationship”
