President Trump has appointed former Fox News executive Bill Shine to a top communications role at the White House. In May of 2017, Shine was ousted from Fox after he was named in multiple lawsuits brought by Fox employees who said he covered up harassment and racial discrimination at the network, including sexual harassment by former top anchor Bill O’Reilly and former Chair Roger Ailes. The lawyer for former Fox presenter Gretchen Carlson, who sued the network and Roger Ailes for sexual harassment two years ago today, said, “Bill Shine is the perfect person for the job of protecting a sexual abuser and liar.” Bill Shine will become the fifth person to fill the role of White House communications director, after Hope Hicks, Anthony Scaramucci, Mike Dubke and Sean Spicer all resigned or were fired.
