Trump Officially Welcomes Ex-Fox News Exec To WH Communication Department

Trump Officially Welcomes Ex-Fox News Exec To WH Communication Department

President Trump has hired Fox News executive Bill Shine to head up the his communications team, the White House said Thursday.

Donald Trump Jr. defended the decision to appoint Shine on Thursday afternoon.

Spicer filled in again in an acting role before Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci on July 21, 2017. But it's especially eyebrow-raising because Shine resigned a year ago amid a flurry of sexual harassment allegations within the network.

Shine resigned from Fox News in May of a year ago.

Some of the accounts portrayed Shine as Ailes' protector and fixer. Named in a number of lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct, he was blamed for not doing more to prevent it.

The liberal group UltraViolet issued a statement calling Shine's hiring "disturbing" but "unsurprising".

The National Women's Law Center criticized the appointment. "This country deserves better". As NPR's David Folkenflik has reported, Shine was never accused of harassment, but women at the network alleged that Shine was aware of inappropriate behavior at Fox News and failed to properly address it. Shine denied those allegations. He resigned in May 2017, in part due to his reputation being tainted from the Ailes scandals.

Shine was also implicated in racial discrimination lawsuits filed by Fox employees.

Mr. Shine is close to Fox News host Sean Hannity, one of Mr. Trump's most loyal defenders who confers with the president regularly. Among them was a regular slot on "Fox & Friends", on which Trump often promoted his false claim that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.

And now Shine works in the White House!

In a comment to Buzzfeed about Shine's appointment, a senior Fox News executive said, "It's extraordinary that the president of the United States could hire someone like this".
