Fox News Allows Trans Ideology Off Camera: Report

The trans policies come from the company’s 2021 handbook.

  • Mary Margaret Olohan from The Daily Signal discovered that Fox News permits radical gender ideology behind the scenes.
  • According to 2021 policies, the company allows its employees to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender of choice, dress to their gender, and permits the use of pronouns and preferred names.
  • The policies denote New York City and California requirements for transgender inclusivity.
  • “Employees who are transitioning their gender have the right to be open about their transition if they so choose, and to work in an environment free of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation, and without fear of consequences or transphobia for living openly,” Fox’s gender transition policy states.
  • The New York City Human Rights Law mandates that individuals “be permitted to use single gender facilities, such as restrooms or locker rooms” that closest equate to his or her preferred gender.
  • A similar law is instated under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Council 2017 regulations.
  • The Fox handbook also draws upon a New York “Workplace Transition Plan,” which lists standards for pronouns, bathroom use, and appearance.
  • “During the initial and any subsequent meetings, you and the Company should develop and maintain a Workplace Transition Plan,” the Fox handbook states, according to The Daily Signal. “This Plan will outline the steps that need to be taken to ensure a successful transition at work.”
  • A former producer for “Tucker Carlson Tonight” told The Daily Signal that Fox News wants “you to think it’s this place that supports traditionally conservative values. But in reality, they’re pushing this nonsense behind the scenes.”
  • “Fox News devotes hours of programming to attacking ‘woke companies,’ but ironically Fox is as woke as the rest of them,” another former employee told the outlet, noting that viewers would be “astonished to find out what the company is like.”
  • The former employee stated that Fox is “no different” than other news outlets.
  • “It’s a standard American mega corporation with all the same types of policies and employees as those other companies,” the former employee said.
  • Since Tucker Carlson left Fox News, the network’s ratings have plummeted 59% during the 8 p.m. ET time slot.
  • Prior to his exit, Tucker Carlson attracted roughly 3.2 million viewers each night.
  • The network now sees an estimated 1.3 million viewers, nearly a 60% decrease.
