Fox News employees are reportedly 'terrified' by new rules like 'you're not allowed to be transphobic'

The times they are a changin', and it's no longer the "Wild West" at Fox News, one insider told Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman. The transformation, which comes as the company has settled nearly 20 recent gender and racial discrimination lawsuits, goes way beyond the company promoting Suzanne Scott to be its first female CEO, too.

"People are terrified," one person told Sherman. "They kicked [new National Rifle Association president] Ollie North out and put in a prayer room. We've got a new trans policy. You're not allowed to be transphobic."

Speaking of that "prayer" room, it is "complete with Muslim prayer rugs," Sherman writes. It's no wonder, then, that "people's heads are blowing up." Read more about the changes afoot at Fox News at Vanity Fair.
