Those are the allegations now. But even if false, they can be meaningful.
I have no idea how Lemon and Carlson were behind the scenes. (See the below clips.) And maybe it doesn’t even matter to us for now.
What does seem significant to me is the rumors (true or false) that these popular anchors were deemed unfit were uttered because they were supposedly impossible to work with for women.
If I sat next to Lemon, who is openly Gay for decades, when he said that Google Search proves his opinion that women over a certain age are over their prime, I would have responded: What do you know about women?!
It’s hard to fire a Gay man for being a blatant sexist as much as it’s hard to accuse a Jew of being a thief, but when it’s true, how could we ignore it?
Governor Andrew Cuomo was fired for credible allegations by women. And then another anchor, Chris, for using his platform and inside information to support his brother despite the accusations. And some. See below.
This might be a more important milestone than the birth of #metoo.
I see a parallel with the attempts to expel the Tennessee Three and the Montana transgender lawmaker ‘for decorum faults.’ US haters must learn not everyone is Teflon Trump, who got away with bigotry for so long.
What seems sure is that Lemon and Carlson were already past prime time.
Here are some respectable clips that I got my information from.
