Three more people came forward Monday with claims of discrimination at Fox News, including a woman who says she was harassed and threatened by a former radio news anchor, NBC News reported.
Kathleen Lee, a Fox News Radio shift editor, said in the lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court that former anchor Ron Flatter tormented her during a broadcast on 9/11. Lee, who lost cousins in the attack, alleged that Flatter "repeatedly talked about death" and "continuously looked over to (her) to make sure she heard," according to the documents.
Lee said she was told to "deal with it" when she complained about Flatter. She added that it was only after Flatter "physically threatened" her a second time that Fox told Flatter "to cease working."
