Vice Media settled for almost $2 million after several former employees sued the progressive company, alleging that they paid women less than men with similar jobs and work experience.
Hollywood Reporter reports that, according to the suit, Vice Media paid women less than men with comparable skill sets and job duties because they determined salary based on each employee’s previous work history. The suit also claims that men would be more likely to advance in the company, and receive even higher pay, than their female counterparts.
For its part, Vice News claims the company had no institutionalized or centralized practice to pay women less than men, and the several former employees who banded together to sue the platform were simply anomalies in the company’s otherwise progressive hiring practices.
Vice Media provided the courts information regarding its salaries dating back to 2012, which the plaintiffs’ legal team used to determine that “when controlling for job family/level, tenure, and work location, the amount of underpaid wages to female employees appeared to range between $7,000,000 and $9,740,000,” Hollywood Reporter notes, according to the motion to settle.
The decision to settle the lawsuit could have potentially saved Vice Media millions of dollars, according to the report.
Ironically, Vice News has published several reports claiming equal pay is a severe threat to the United States, including an article published a year ago titled “Trump is letting companies get away with paying women less than men”. It is not known how or if President Donald J. Trump somehow holds sway over Vice News.
It should be noted that Vice News is not particularly well known for its accurate reporting. Last year the far left media company described President Trump’s former campaign manager Roger Stone, Infowars host Alex Jones, and new media personality Milo Yiannopoulos as “white supremacists.” This error was particularly comedic considering Stone is married to an Hispanic woman, Jones’ first wife was Jewish, and Yiannopoulos is in a homosexual marriage with a black man.
CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes
The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.
CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.
Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.
Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.
“Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…”
Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.
“What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?”
The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
