The saga between Britt McHenry and Fox News continues to get muddier as the former has now sued the latter over allegations of sexual harassment.
McHenry is a host for Fox News' Fox Nation streaming video outlet and has alleged that she has been denied opportunities at the company after reporting claims she was harassed sexually by a former co-host, George Murdoch, who is also known as Tyrus.
According to a report in Variety, McHenry’s suit, filed in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York, asks for a jury trial as well as more than $75,000 in damages.
The suit also names Jennifer Rauchet, an executive producer; John Finley, Fox News’ executive vice president of development; and Moncia Mekeel, a senior vice president of human resources ,as defendants.
In the suit, McHenry says she believes her professional career has suffered during her time at Fox News, and that she has been ignored by senior executives; left out of programming opportunities and events; and not promoted as much as some of her colleagues. ” Throughout 2019, Fox News retaliated against Ms. McHenry,” the suit alleges, stripping her of professional opportunities while simultaneously promoting her harasser, giving him his own show.”
