Fox News sued over ethnic discrimination

Reuters - Fox News is facing renewed legal claims that it mistreated non-white employees, including a television anchor who said he was depicted as "the racist caricature of a black entertainer."

Eleven current and former Fox employees, including anchor Kelly Wright, filed an amended lawsuit in New York state court claiming they were demeaned, humiliated, paid less than white coworkers, and passed over for promotions.

The lawsuit was originally filed last month by two Fox News payroll employees. Tuesday's complaint added class action racial discrimination claims to the case.
