Daily Signal Exclusive: Leaked Policy Exposes Fox News Stances on Woke Ideology: 'Something Fox's Viewers Should Know'

Mary Margaret Olohan : May 23, 2023  The Daily Signal

"Fox's viewers think that Fox shares their values. And it's very clear that that's just not the case. Gender ideology is as far radical Left as you can possibly go. They have embraced radical leftism in its most extreme form..." -Matt Walsh, The Daily Wire

These are just a few of the policies outlined in the company handbook, dated January 2021, a copy of which was shared with The Daily Signal. Fox also offers to help employees come up with a "Workplace Transition Plan" to ease their gender transition at work.

The revelations come amid conservative consternation at Fox Digital's use of activist language like "gender affirming care" in stories on its website, as well as the site's consistent use of female pronouns for biological males like TikTok celebrity Dylan Mulvaney and swimmer Lia Thomas (formerly known as Will Thomas).

Fox also drew strong backlash for a June 2022 on-air segment praising a child's gender transition asan "inspiration to others." That segment briefly depicted California state Sen. Scott Weiner, a far-left Democrat who led the move to soften sex offender registry requirements for sodomy with minors, and highlighted the activist claim that a child might commit suicide if he or she is not permitted to transition.

The Daily Signal talked to current and former Fox employees who requested anonymity to speak candidly about the company.

"They want you to think it's this place that supports traditionally conservative values," a former producer for "Tucker Carlson Tonight" told The Daily Signal. "But in reality, they're pushing this nonsense behind the scenes."

Carlson's show was canceled April 24, days after he delivered a viral speech at The Heritage Foundation's 50th anniversary gala. Fox News Media has not given a reason, simply stating that the two parties "agreed to part ways." 

A source who still works at Fox News told The Daily Signal that after Carlson's show was canceled in April, producers for the new 8 p.m. "Fox News Tonight" program were told not to bash Mulvaney. That directive came from high-level executives, the source said.

Fox News did not respond to The Daily Signal's multiple requests for comment.

Under the category "Gender Transition," Fox's employee handbook promises that the company is dedicated to "expanding and strengthening" efforts to "sustain a more inclusive work environment." The Fox employee handbook is posted on Workday, where employees can see company guidelines or policies, a former employee told The Daily Signal.

"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," the policy says.

Citing the Human Rights Campaign, one of the most prominent LGBTQ organization in the country, the Fox handbook defines a slew of LGBTQ terms, including cisgender, gender expression, gender-fluid, gender identity, gender non-conforming, gender transition, LGBTQ, non-binary, and transgender.

For the past several years, Fox received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index, "the nation's foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality." A former Fox News employee told The Daily Signal that the company frequently mentions this perfect score in employee training materials.

"Fox News devotes hours of programming to attacking 'woke companies,' but ironically Fox is as woke as the rest of them," another former Fox News employee told The Daily Signal, emphasizing that Fox viewers would be "astonished to find out what the company is like."

Fox's policies appear to be aligned with the legal requirements in New York City, where the company is headquartered.

The New York City Human Rights Law requires employers to use the name, pronouns, and title with which a person identifies, regardless of the sex assigned at birth. It is a violation of the NYCHRL to intentionally or repeatedly refuse to use a person's preferred name, pronouns, or title.

Additionally, the New York City law requires that people "be permitted to use single gender facilities, such as restrooms or locker rooms...that most closely align with their gender, regardless of their gender expression, sex assigned at birth, anatomy, medical history, or the sex or gender indicated on their identification."

If a biological woman objects to sharing a bathroom with a trans-identifying man, her objection will not be considered a "lawful reason to deny access" to the trans-identifying individual: "In those circumstances, a covered entity may offer alternatives for the individual expressing discomfort, by, for example, providing a single-occupancy restroom to change in."

The law also specifically states that it is "unlawful" to require a trans-identifying person to use a single-occupancy restroom "because they are transgender, non-binary, or gender non-conforming." New York also outlines the "Workplace Transition Plan" mentioned in the Fox handbook... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
