Fox News Under Federal Investigations Examining Sexual Harassment, Intimidation, Undisclosed Payoffs
Federal investigators are taking a deeper look into various alleged improprieties at Fox News, according to a Thursday night report from the Wall Street Journal. Both U.S. Postal Inspection Service investigators and the securities unit of the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan) are investigating.
Additional details have emerged in a Washington Post article. Specifically, a $3.15 million payment to Laurie Luhn from when she left the company and ended her affair with Roger Files has been deemed suspicious because the check was signed by “a corporate executive based in Los Angeles who had no direct involvement with Fox News.”
