“[c]orporate governance and ethics experts say that [Fox] and its board ought to have been aware of problems involving sexual harassment accusations at the network, as well as any payouts related to them.”

Fox (NASDAQ:FOX) is an international, diversified media and entertainment company. Fox produces and licenses news, sports, movie, and general and factual entertainment programming for distribution primarily through cable television systems, direct broadcast satellite operators, telecommunications companies, and online video distributors.

On July 6, 2016, former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against then-Fox News chief Roger Ailes. Carlson claimed in her lawsuit that her firing was retaliation for her refusing Ailes’ sexual advances. In addition, several women, including Megyn Kelly, Fox’s star anchor, reportedly stepped forward saying they also had experienced unwanted sexual advances from Ailes.

On July 21, 2016, Fox announced that Ailes was ousted from the network and Rupert Murdoch stepped in as chairman.

On August 10, 2016, the New York Times reported that Fox is also facing scrutiny over whether it knew, or should have known, about Ailes’s alleged behavior. The article further states that “[c]orporate governance and ethics experts say that [Fox] and its board ought to have been aware of problems involving sexual harassment accusations at the network, as well as any payouts related to them.”
