Former CBS exec blasts network for culture of ‘systematic racism, discrimination and sexual harassment’

A former executive and longtime employee of CBS has slammed the company’s workplace, calling it “fraught with systemic racism, discrimination and sexual harassment.”

Following an independent investigation of CBS last year after sexual misconduct allegations were levied against the former CEO Les Moonves, it was the opinion of Whitney Davis, a ten-year employee of the network’s news and entertainment divisions, that there would be large-scale changes.

Having allegedly experienced a litany of disturbing interactions with other employees and executives throughout her career there, Davis was active in the investigation and voiced her concerns with the workplace culture, hoping that it would lead to an expansion primarily in the way CBS treats their employees of color.

Davis claimed in a lengthy piece she penned for Variety that she heard nothing from investigators. Then, the report was leaked to the media, and the investigation was closed.

“It was then that I realized what I had long tried to ignore — CBS has a white problem,” she wrote. She went on to discuss a significant lack of people of color working in all realms of the CBS Television Network and Studios, especially among creative executives.

Following Davis’s piece, CBS issued a statement saying that they disagreed with “some statements” in her story, the company takes “all employee concerns seriously and remain committed to improving the workplace experience for everyone.”

“CBS leadership has made strengthening our culture a top priority,” the statement continued. “Over the past several months, we have announced plans to devote considerable resources to critical areas such as ethics, compliance, diversity and inclusion, and human resources, including creating a centralized employee relations function to respond to workplace issues.

“Employees are CBS’ most important resource, and providing them with a safe, fair, inclusive and positive work environment is paramount to our continued success.”

Since beginning her journalism career with CBS News in 2006, even as she was rising through the ranks from an entry-level role to the manager of CBS Entertainment Diversity and Inclusion, Davis claimed she experienced shocking acts of racism and discrimination by superiors and peers at the company.

Frequently, she alleged, she was confused with the only other black woman working in her department at “CBS Evening News.” A coworker also allegedly bragged to her that his father loved having sex with black women. A white, female colleague used the N-word in front of her. While working with CBS Entertainment, she said the Talent and Casting EVP frequently passed over black actors and actresses in favor of white ones.

Davis said CBS touts the diversity initiatives they reference on the surface, but do little to actually implement them.

“CBS continues to promote its diversity initiatives in public, while internally minorities are practically invisible. It has taken me 13 years to harness the courage to speak my truth, but I am empowered to create meaningful dialogue and change,” she said.

Davis concluded that it is her hope that speaking out about her experience with CBS will create a wider discussion about the treatment of diversities in the workplace.

“With the investigation into CBS’ workplace culture now closed, it is my hope that my story is a cautionary tale for companies to value the talent and contributions of people of color and those from marginalized communities in the workplace,” she said. “A diverse workforce is an asset to any company — we make you stronger and more profitable. My hope is to create lasting change in the industry. Let’s start with CBS.”

CBS resurfaces 1970 ‘Act or Die’ alarmist climate change clip on Earth Day

Westlake Legal Group cbs-resurfaces-1970-act-or-die-alarmist-climate-change-clip-on-earth-day CBS resurfaces 1970 'Act or Die' alarmist climate change clip on Earth Day Lukas Mikelionis fox-news/us/environment/climate-change fox-news/politics fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article a82f3e65-c7b4-56b9-8ceb-7fa7e0c1c42a

CBS dug up for Earth Day a decades-old news clip about pollution and the environment urging people to “act or die,” while its current morning show hosts endorsed punitive fees on some urban motorists.

CBS “This Morning” played the vintage video of Walter Cronkite in 1970 endorsing the Earth Day as “a day set aside for a nationwide outpouring of mankind seeking its own survival.” In another clip, Cronkite says: “The gravity of the message of Earth Day still came through. Act or die.”

In the spirit of the doomsday warnings in 1970, which have since been ridiculed for over-the-top predictions, the show aired a segment praising London’s ultra-low emission zone that forces motorists to pay high fees just to drive through the center of London.

BILL DE BLASIO SAYS GREEN NEW DEAL WILL BAN ‘INEFFICIENT’ STEEL AND GLASS SKYSCRAPERS

“Approach central London and you’ll see these signs announcing a charge just for bringing your car into town. Ka-ching, about 15 bucks. And if you’ve got an older car, especially if it’s a diesel, the overhead cameras will spot you, and under the new, ultra low emissions zone, that will be another sixteen and a half bucks. That’s over $30 just to drive into town,” the segment said.

The show’s co-anchor Gayle King said the fees are a way of doing “a little something” to fight climate change and suggested the policy will encourage people to update their vehicles or “take the bus.”

The broadcast didn’t raise the criticism shared by Londoners and British conservatives that say the roll out of the policy hits the poorest motorists the hardest as, unlike wealthy residents, they cannot upgrade their vehicles to the required standard to avoid fees.

Many of the initial predictions about global warming voiced in the 1970s have been debunked. Ecologist Watt, according to the Daily Signal, issued a number of bombshell predictions in the wake of Earth Day in 1970, warning of the imminent shortages and the end of crude oil.

“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate … that there won’t be any more crude oil,” Watt reportedly said. “You’ll drive up to the pump and say, ‘Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, ‘I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’”

According to various studies, the world oil consumption more than doubled since 1970 thanks to the emergence of industrial powers such as China and India.

American Enterprise Institute, as pointed out by the Media Research Center, also notes the over-the-top tone of the media in 1970, encapsulated by Life magazine’s reporting that “in a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution … by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half.”

‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar blasts Trump over Mueller report omission: ‘That would have been the nail in the coffin’

Westlake Legal Group the-view-co-host-joy-behar-blasts-trump-over-mueller-report-omission-that-would-have-been-the-nail-in-the-coffin 'The View' co-host Joy Behar blasts Trump over Mueller report omission: 'That would have been the nail in the coffin' Liam Quinn fox-news/person/joy-behar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/entertainment/the-view fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc fc71bcb8-5eec-5cef-91c5-a420e912d72b article

“The View” was off last week when Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released, so the show’s liberal hosts wasted no time jumping into the fray when it returned Monday morning.

Joy Behar, a frequent and frenzied critic of President Trump, got the ball rolling by stating Mueller missed out on what would have been a “nail in the coffin” for the president.

“Can I say I was disappointed in the fact that Mueller didn’t actually interview Trump?” Behar asked her co-hosts.

“That would have been the nail in the coffin. He would have committed perjury and impeachment automatically. I was disappointed in that.”

TRUMP TAKES AIM AT ‘HIGHLY CONFLICTED’ MUELLER, ‘FAKE NEWS MEDIA’ AMID RUSSIA REPORT FALLOUT

Behar then blasted Mueller’s reasoning for not subpoenaing the president for an interview as part of the investigation. The report stated: “Recognizing that the President would not be interviewed voluntarily, we considered whether to issue a subpoena for his testimony. We viewed the written answers to be inadequate. But at that point, our investigation had made significant progress and had produced substantial evidence for our report.

“We thus weighed the costs of potentially lengthy constitutional litigation, with resulting delay in finishing our investigation, against the anticipated benefits for our investigation and report. We determined that the substantial quality of information we had obtained from other sources allowed us to draw relevant factual conclusions on intent and credibility, which are often inferred from circumstantial evidence and assessed without direct testimony from the subject of the investigation.”

But Behar wasn’t buying the explanation.

“The answer he gave was it would take too much time and it would go into legal proceedings that would get convoluted,” she said.

“I say, so what? They did it to Clinton. Why couldn’t they do it to Trump? Because his lawyers impeded justice, in my opinion, by not allowing him to sit down, because they knew that he would commit perjury because he’s a liar.”

Whoopi Goldberg: “[I]f you try to get other people to break the law, that is a crime. That should be a crime.”

Whoopi Goldberg then joined in on the action, saying what “p—ed her off” about the report.

“What p—ed me off is that don’t have anything in place that says, clearly enough to people so they don’t do it, if you try to get other people to break the law, that is a crime. That should be a crime,” she said.

After the co-hosts stated that is what they believe Trump did, she continued: “Then he broke the law.

“For me this is what’s bothering me. The fact that we are now — we have clear evidence of thing we need to change in what a president can and cannot do and how, those are the things — for me that’s the what the Mueller report gave me.

“These are the things that need to change.”

News organizations fight to keep Harvey Weinstein sexual assault court hearings open to press

News organizations are fighting to pull back the curtain on a Harvey Weinstein court appearance that the prosecution and defense want held in secret.

The organizations, including The Associated Press and The New York Times, argued in court papers filed Monday that the sides haven’t met a high legal standard for banning the media and the public from Friday’s hearing in Weinstein’s sexual assault case.

Prosecutors contend the hearing should be closed to protect Weinstein’s right to a fair trial and for the privacy of women whose allegations against him are not part of the underlying criminal charges. Weinstein’s lawyers say news coverage could taint the jury pool.

BOTH SIDES IN HARVEY WEINSTEIN SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE WANT TRIAL CLOSED TO PUBLIC

Prosecutors want the women to testify at Weinstein’s June 3 trial to show he has had a pattern of violating women. They also expect to discuss evidence that could be used against Weinstein if he testifies.

A lawyer for the news organizations, Robert Balin, argues that holding the hearing behind closed doors would do nothing to safeguard Weinstein’s right to a fair trial because allegations against him from more than 80 women have already been widely reported.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE TO MOVE FORWARD, JUDGE SAYS

Many of those women, such as actresses Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd, have agreed to be identified publicly.

“Clearly, there is no rational basis — let alone ‘compelling circumstances” — that could justify the Parties’ effort to suppress this information now that it is in the public domain as a result of intensive news reporting,” Balin wrote in the filing.

Balin called closing the courtroom an “extreme remedy” and argued that as much as possible the hearing should be held in open court.

JUDGE GRANTS HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S REQUEST TO REPLACE LEGAL TEAM

Weinstein is charged with raping an unidentified female acquaintance in his hotel room in 2013 and performing a forcible sex act on a different woman in 2006. Those women have not agreed to be publicly identified. The Associated Press does not identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly.

Weinstein has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. He pleaded not guilty and is free on $1 million bail. His trial is scheduled to begin June 3.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S SEXUAL ASSAULT TRIAL DELAYED UNTIL JUNE

In January, Weinstein hired Casey Anthony‘s lawyer, Jose Baez, to lead a remade defense team after his previous lawyer lost a hard-fought bid to get his case thrown out. Anthony was acquitted on charges of killing her young daughter.

Judge James Burke said he would hear arguments from the news organizations’ lawyers just before the start of Friday’s hearing. The lawyers, in their filing, asked to be heard sooner so that they may appeal if he rules against them.

The news organizations are also requesting that documents filed under seal in the case be made public and that all future filings, even ones made under seal, be listed on the case docket so that “the public and press receive prompt notice that such materials exist.”

Washington Post faces backlash after Sri Lanka attacks for focus on ‘far right’

The Washington Post sparked backlash on Monday for an article that focused on reaction from the “far right” after the Sri Lanka attacks on Christians, with at least one analyst saying it’s been a common focus for the newspaper after multiple crises, regardless of the cause.

An “analysis” piece published on the church and hotel massacres that killed nearly 300 people and wounded more than 500 others kept the focus on the reactions of “far-right” politicians around the world. It noted that France’s National Rally leader Marine Le Pen said her thoughts were with “persecuted Christians around the world” who are “targeted for their faith.”

The piece also highlighted Germany’s “Alternative for Germany” party, who decried the attack “against us Christians.” In addition, it included reactions from British provocateur Katie Hopkins, who called out London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s response to Sri Lanka compared to his response after the anti-Muslim attack in Christchurch, New Zealand, as well as former Reagan aide Frank Gaffney, who was “best known for his anti-Muslim rhetoric,” as the Post reported.

The headline, “Analysis: Sri Lanka church bombings stoke far-right anger in the West,” triggered a stir on social media.

The Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson pointed out a pattern of a “far-right” focus the WaPo has had after recent events, including the New Zealand terror attack and the recent fire that severely damaged the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

“The phrase ‘far-right’ is a click magnet for left-of-center audiences,” Hasson tweeted.

The Post did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., saw a couple of viral moments during a televised town hall on Monday night.

The first: what critics and analysts have called her “please clap” moment. Klobuchar was boasting that in each of her elections she won every congressional district in her state, including that of former Rep. Michele Bachmann, a Republican.

After the audience didn’t react to her victories, Klobuchar gave them permission to be excited.

“It’s when you guys are supposed to cheer, okay?” Klobuchar grinned, which prompted applause and some laughter.

Many on social media have drawn comparisons to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who famously told a town hall crowd to “please clap” on the campaign trail during the 2016 election.

STIREWALT: TRUMP SUPPORTERS UNFAZED BY MUELLER REPORT RELEASE

Later on, the Minnesota Democrat had an awkward encounter with CNN anchor and town hall moderator Chris Cuomo.

While discussing how to address climate change with rural voters, Klobuchar stressed how important it was and told Cuomo that she wanted to “finish” her thought before he interrupted.

She then, however, felt a little creeped out by Cuomo’s presence.

“I feel you creeping over my shoulder,” Klobuchar told the CNN anchor. She jokingly clarified, “not in a Trumpian manner.”

Klobuchar was referring to the second presidential debate in 2016. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton later accused then-candidate Donald Trump of being a “creep” for approaching behind her on the debate stage and claimed her “skin crawled” in her memoir, “What Happened.”

Two big-name cable news hosts on Monday appeared to be urging congressional Democrats to pursue impeachment after the release of a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, with one calling it a “patriotic duty” to remove President Trump from office.

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski insisted Trump had “a lot to answer for” and questioned what Democrats should do next, as highlighted by NewsBusters.

“What do they do next to make sure that they tamp down the political but step up on the moral and also their, quite frankly, patriotic duty to step up for the country?” Brzezinski asked.

MSNBC contributor Adrienne Elrod responded, telling the “Morning Joe” co-host that Congress “does not have a choice” but to pursue investigations into the president that could lead to impeachment.

Meanwhile, CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota on Monday pushed back against CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who predicted that impeachment would not happen “under any circumstances.”

“Well, I don’t know about that, Jeffrey. I mean, it feels like it’s gaining a little bit of momentum,” Camerota said.

“I think that the feeling is today… is that if you don’t do something, if you’re Congress and you don’t do something, then you’re saying that the president is above the law. You’re saying that all this wrongdoing that has been exposed: well, for political reasons we just can’t do anything.”

Patricia Heaton expressed fury to how the media covered several events on Easter, including the Sri Lanka suicide bombings on churches and the press’ hounding of Robert Mueller outside of his church.

The “Carol’s Second Act” star didn’t take kindly to MSNBC asking Mueller about his infamous report outside his local Easter services.

“Hello @MSNBC. Today is Easter Sunday, the holiest day of the Christian calendar. Some of the faithful were murdered today while they worshiped,” the conservative actress griped on Twitter. “But you ambush Robert Mueller outside of his church and chuckle about it afterward. This is loathesome. Shame on you.”

Heaton, 61, then posted screenshots of tweets from various Democratic leaders, including former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, condemning the Sri Lanka church attacks — but criticizing them for not calling the victims Christians.

“It reminds me of the time #Nancy Pelosi couldn’t bring herself to say the name ‘Jesus,” the “Everybody Loves Raymond” star added alongside a video of the 2010 moment.

At least 290 people, including 39 foreign tourists, were killed in the suicide bombings on Christian churches on Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, while more than 500 were injured. Authorities reportedly have 13 suspects in custody.

She also replied to a follower who questioned her stance, writing, “In New Zealand, did anyone refer to the victims as ‘Ramadan worshippers’? Why is it hard for liberal politicians to say the word ‘Christian’ in this instance?”

Heaton also lashed out at the New York Times, writing, “This year’s ‘Media’s Crap Take on Easter’ brought to you by @NickKristof who interviews the president of Union Theological Seminary @serenejones, who doesn’t believe in the basic tenets of the Faith, like…ressurection. As always, courtesy of @nytimes.”

Clinton press secretary says Barr lied about Mueller report, is not an ‘principled man’

President Bill Clinton’s former press secretary has gone on a blistering attack against Attorney General William Barr, accusing him of lying to the American people and of not being an “incredibly principled man.”

Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart went on the offensive during an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday morning.

After the show played old footage of Barr discussing the issue of executive privilege in relation to then-President Clinton, Lockhart unloaded.

“I don’t know Bill Barr… I don’t know that I believe all of the stories before his confirmation that he was some incredibly principled man,” he said.

“He was the guy for the job. If anyone believed that and they still believe it, they are just naive.”

Lockhart then took aim at how Barr has handled the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“What he did was an incredible disservice to the country,” he said on CNN.

“The way he withheld the report and then on three separate occasions told the American public this is what the report says. So that everybody read it in that frame of mind. The fact is the report said just the opposite.

MAXINE WATERS CALLS BARR A ‘LACKEY AND A SYCOPHANT’ FOR TRUMP

“You can call it misleading, spin. I call it lying. When you have the president of the United States, the press secretary, the attorney general all effortlessly lying something’s got to change.”

Lockhart is not the only person to take aim at Barr in recent days, with MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Democrat Maxine Waters also calling him into question.

“He does something once again that is going to scuff up his reputation. Absolutely his reputation is shot,” Scarborough said last week of Barr’s handling of the release of the Mueller report, also describing him as a “political hack” and no longer “a respected legal mind.”

“Here’s a guy that served in Washington for 30 years, had the respect of Republicans — he won’t get his reputation back. It’s shot. Sullied, the way he’s handled himself.”

“What he did was an incredible disservice to the country,” former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart said of AG Barr.

Meanwhile, Waters trashed the attorney general on the eve of Special Counsel Mueller’s report being released to the public, calling Barr “a lackey and a sycophant” for President Trump.

“I never expected Barr to do anything that would be respectful to the members of Congress or to include us in any real way,” she told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, joining colleagues fuming over the decision by Barr to hold a press conference before releasing a redacted version of the report.

“He has proven himself. He auditioned for this job. He was chosen to protect the president of the United States and that’s exactly what he’s doing. I’m not surprised.”

BuzzFeed News editor takes heat for suggesting Trump would be more outraged if Sri Lanka victims were white

A BuzzFeed News world editor faced backlash Sunday for taking a swipe at President Trump while tweeting an article about the attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter.

“Suspect we’d be hearing a lot more outrage from Trump and co. if the Christians killed in Sri Lanka were white,” Miriam Elder tweeted with a link to BuzzFeed News.

Elder’s tweet, as The Washington Examiner reported, received more comments than likes or retweets. It had received nearly 2,000 replies, 55 retweets and 120 likes as of Sunday evening.

Many of the commenters asked why the BuzzFeed News world editor would politicize the terrorist attacks.

BuzzFeed News did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Trump on Easter morning offered condolences to the people of Sri Lanka. The president tweeted about the terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka, saying “we stand ready to help!”

More than 200 people were killed and hundreds more wounded in eight bomb blasts that rocked churches and luxury hotels in or near Sri Lanka’s capital on Easter Sunday — the deadliest violence the South Asian island country has seen since a bloody civil war ended a decade ago.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks; Sri Lanka’s defense minister described the bombings as a terrorist attack by religious extremists.
