Former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle is embroiled in a sexual harassment controversy. The network reportedly paid out millions to a former staffer in an effort to avoid going to trial. The story was first reported by The New Yorker.

According to the report, Guilfoyle, who now works for the Trump Campaign, subjected her assistant to degrading behaviors, such as being shown lewd photographs of men with whom Guilfoyle had sexual relations. 

In 2018, Guilfoyle’s attorney John Singer, told the HuffPost that the allegations are “unequivocally baseless and have been viciously made by disgruntled and self-interested employees.” Guilfoyle maintained that her decision to move from television news to a political campaign was voluntary and that the allegations about her behavior were false.

Guilfoyle was a prosecutor in Los Angeles and San Francisco before becoming co-host of the political talk show “The Five” on Fox News. 

She reportedly denied a request by The New Yorker for an interview saying that she “never engaged in any workplace misconduct of any kind.”

Leland Vittert: Joseph Goebbels Would Be Proud of Tucker Carlson

“He’s taking the side of terrorists. There’s no other explanation than his unabashed hatred of Jews.”

In an interview for his digital video show, Tucker Carlson interviewed a Palestinian Christian Pastor — Dr. Munther Isaac — who claimed the Israelis, not the Palestinians, are killing members of his faith in Bethlehem. NewsNation host Leland Vittert couldn’t hold in his criticism of his former Fox News colleague after seeing the interaction.

In his takedown of Carlson, Vittert argued that the pastor he sat down with has lived and worked in an area controlled by Palesinians for “almost two decades,” so his insinuation that it is actually Israel doing the damage in his area is preposterous.

“If you wake up in the morning and decide that your Christian faith requires you to support a foreign government blowing up churches and killing Christians, I think you’ve lost the thread,” Carlson said while speaking with the reverend on his Tucker on X program published Tuesday.

Leland Vittert — after juxtaposing Carlson’s opinions with those of The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart — took the opportunity to compare Tucker Carlson to one of the more prominent Nazi figures.

“Joseph Goebbels – the Nazi propaganda chief — would be proud,” said Vittert. “Tucker’s a smart guy. Yet, he’s taking the side of terrorists. There’s no other explanation than his unabashed hatred of Jews. Twenty years ago, we all remember, Stewart exposed Tucker for what he is. That ended Carlson’s tenure on CNN’s Crossfire.

“But there’s a larger lesson to take now six months since Hamas attacked Israel, since the hostages were taken. Hamas has been exposed for what they are. Stewart has been exposed for caving to his liberal viewers. Carlson’s been exposed for siding with terrorists. And now in America – and this is the sad part – hating Jews, calling for their destruction, celebrating their rape? It’s now ok. It’s hard to have peace with people who think that is ok.”

CBS News has announced an upcoming rebrand of its streaming network and will double the amount of live hours in the process.

On Monday, April 22nd, CBS News Streaming Network will become CBS News 24/7. The network will add new programming as it comes under the full control of the division’s President and CEO Wendy McMahon.

“CBS News 24/7 is a decidedly ambitious evolution of our streaming efforts,” said McMahon. “Data backs up our bet on a fresh, timely, and distinctive approach to breaking news and live coverage. Our audiences crave it, and we’re in the best position to deliver it.”

The network will add a show with John Dickerson called The Daily Report, as well as an extended edition of America Decides on the date of the rebranding. CBS News Roundup and CBS News Confirmed will each be added later this year.

Several “hub” cities will help contribute content to the streaming network. Those hubs will include Cleveland, Columbus, Des Moines, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Nashville, New Orleans, Phoenix, Raleigh, St. Louis, San Antonio, and Tampa.

“These news hubs will help us overall respond to stories faster during breaking news simply because we will have people there,” Senior Vice President of Domestic Newsgathering Terri Stewart told CNN’s Oliver Darcy. “Our national movement of community journalism is in response to population shifts across the country, and it’s an extension of what we did at CBS Stations to turn neighborhoods into newsrooms.”

Sean Hannity: Nearly Every Newsroom in America Produces Biased News Coverage

“There is no fidelity to the truth whatsoever. They will lie, they will censor, they will obfuscate the truth all as a means to an end.”

The topic of journalism and political bias in media has come to the forefront after an NPR editor claimed his network has lost the trust of Americans by its biased reporting over the past decade. Sean Hannity says anyone who didn’t see it before now wasn’t paying attention.

During his Fox News program Tuesday, Hannity decried the current state of journalism in the country, pointing to the internal strife at NPR as proof of his theory that objective news reporting no longer exists.

“These are organizations filled with self-proclaimed journalists. They’re not journalists. One big problem: Journalism is dead, it is buried. This is something that I, accurately, said back in 2007 or 2008 when the press turned into giddy cheerleaders for the Anointed One — Barack Obama,” said Hannity. “Now almost every newsroom in America, they’re not news. They’re opinion, they’re talk show hosts, they’re radical leftists at all costs.”

Sean Hannity continued by sharing his belief that media executives have an ulterior motive by providing biased coverage.

“With a few exceptions, journalism has now been replaced by liberal radical activism. Journalists are far-left hacks, some of them flirting right on the borderline with communism. There is no fidelity to the truth whatsoever,” posited Hannity. “They will lie, they will censor, they will obfuscate the truth all as a means to an end. Their goal is political power, a left-wing utopia where dissent no longer exists.”
