Report: Fox News installs meditation room complete with Muslim prayer rugs

On Thursday, Vanity Fair reported that Fox News has installed a meditation room, complete with Muslim prayer rugs.  Worse yet, the room used to be Oliver North’s office in the network’s Washington bureau. The Marine veteran became the president of the NRA earlier this month.

According to Vanity Fair:

…Staffers now attend mandatory sexual harassment training, and the employee intranet includes a section for gender-transition policies and guidelines. “People are terrified. They kicked Ollie North out and put in a prayer room. We’ve got a new trans policy. You’re not allowed to be transphobic,” one source said. Other changes that would have been alien in the Ailes era include the creation of a workforce and diversity council. “People’s heads are blowing up,” one insider said.

“It’s not the Wild West anymore; there are now policies and procedures,” a network spokesperson reportedly said.

The changes seem to be the result of new management.  According to Vanity Fair, “…Lachlan Murdoch announced the network’s longtime programming executive, Suzanne Scott, was being promoted to chief executive of the news organization, noting in the release that she ‘made history as its first female C.E.O.’ Scott’s elevation comes two days after the network announced it had settled the remaining gender and racial discrimination lawsuits from the Ailes era for roughly $10 million.”

But Scott’s promotion isn’t being greeted as a feminist victory by all, Gabriel Sherman said. “Some staffers view her as a symbol of the Ailes era, because Ailes directed her to enforce his miniskirt wardrobe policy for on-air talent. (Through a spokesperson, Scott denies this.)”

Breitbart noted:

In what might be related news, Sean Hannity, who is not only the biggest star at Fox but in all of cable news, is reportedly being heavily courted by Sinclair News. Sinclair owns some 200 television stations and is looking to launch a channel that will compete with Fox News, which will become a lot easier if Fox sells out to the establishment and becomes as politically correct as a meditation room with prayer rugs.
