CBS Faces Subpoena, Human Rights Commission Probe

Published

on

CBS is under fire for alleged workplace misconduct, and has been served a subpoena by the New York District Attorney’s Office as it faces a probe by the city’s Commission on Human Rights, according to a Friday report.

“CBS Corp. is facing investigations by city and state officials in New York stemming from the reports of alleged sexual misconduct by former chairman-CEO Leslie Moonves and concerns about the working environment at the company,” the report said.

According to a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing, “the company is cooperating with the ongoing investigation and related inquiries.”

There are also two outside law firms investigating CBS regarding allegations made against Moonves. On Sept. 9, Moonves resigned from his position after six women made allegations of sexual misconduct against him directly, and several others complained of a company culture that tolerated sexual harassment against female employees.

David Rhodes, President of CBS and brother of former advisor to President Barack H. Obama, Ben Rhodes is reportedly under scrutiny.

Big League Politics reported:

David Rhodes, president of CBS News and brother of former Barack Obama speechwriter Ben Rhodes, is reportedly coming under “increased scrutiny” as people accuse him of overseeing a culture of permissiveness with regard to sexual harassment.

CBS president Les Moonves has resigned after multiple sex harassment allegations were leveled at him. This comes on the heels of Charlie Rose’s well-documented downfall at the Eyeball Network for his many cases of alleged sexual harassment and misconduct.

Moonves’ wife Julie Chen works under David Rhodes at CBS News, and David Rhodes has been visibly chummy with Charlie Rose.

“CBS is also in the midst of a search for a new CEO,” the report said. “Joe Ianniello, CBS’ chief operating officer, has taken on acting CEO duties in the interim.”

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

on

Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.

Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.

Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.

Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.

It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.

Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
