Toxic Culture Shift Coming? As a headline for a story that is about women being sick of the present toxic culture?


There already IS a toxic culture in the newsroom according to women who have had it with sexism and sexual misconduct.
So how is it that banding together to end it is the "toxic" part of the culture shift?
:135:


Come on. Even the news thinks of women as objects. Why do women have such a problem with this ? Lol.

Sheesh!

6 women claim Weinstein cover up was racketeering

NEW YORK (AP) - Six women filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein on Wednesday, claiming that the movie mogul's actions to cover up assaults amounted to civil racketeering.

The lawsuit was filed at a federal court in New York seeking to represent a class of "dozens, if not hundreds" of women who say they were assaulted by Weinstein.

The lawsuit claims that a coalition of companies and people became part of the growing "Weinstein Sexual Enterprise" and that they worked with Weinstein to conceal his widespread sexual harassment and assaults.

Another one. Only the charges are 15 years old and he was cleared back then. So what gives? :135:

Washington (CNN)Two things were clear after Al Franken finished his speech on the Senate floor just after noon on Thursday:
1. He was resigning his seat by the end of the year.
2. He didn't believe he had done anything for which he should have been forced to resign.
Franken's speech was defined primarily by his lack of any real apology and the clear bitterness he carries for being pushed out amid allegations that he had groped several women and forcibly tried to kiss others.


http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/07/politics/ ... index.html

Bye bye Al!

Funny to see the two protagonists Bill O'Reilly and Al Franken both taken down within a few months of each other. For the same behavior.
3.7 cents kwh in alberta is a lie. The science is settled - wind turbines suck.

Not all leftists are stupid, but most stupid people are leftists.

The avalanche of allegations is showing us how ingrained and system wide the behavior has become throughout so many levels of power, from people in trusted positions and suspect positions, and therefore can not be divided into "left or right" politics.

There has always been a small group, represented in all walks of life, that has done whatever they thought they could get away with. What this avalanche of accusations says to these people, is that they didn't get away with it after all.

Republican Arizona Rep. Trent Franks is expected to resign, multiple sources tell CNN on Thursday.

The reasons for his resignation were not immediately clear as the news broke. On Thursday evening, a group of conservative House Republicans gathered around Franks on the floor and prayed with him. Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, one of the members who huddled with Franks, told CNN that a statement is coming out shortly on the issue.
