    60 Minutes corespondent Scott Pelley says he was let go as host of the CBS Evening News because he spoke up to his bosses about the “hostile” workplace within the network’s news division. In an interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Pelley explains, “We’ve been through a dark period of the last several years of incompetent management and sort of a hostile work environment within the news division. I lost my job at the evening news because I wouldn’t stop complaining to management about the hostile work environment.” Pelley — who served as anchor of the CBS...

    A CBS celebrity reporter sued two of his bosses Thursday, saying they drunkenly groped him during boozy encounters that weren’t taken seriously by America’s Most Watched Network. Ken Lombardi, 29, charges in documents filed in Manhattan Federal Court that at a December 2013 CBS News holiday party, Duane Tollison, a senior producer, grabbed Lombardi’s crotch and kissed his neck. “I wanted to apologize if anything I did offended you or crossed a line. I like to get a little crazy. If you weren’t offended, then let’s do it again. LOL How is your day so far? :)” Tollison wrote the...

    Faced with rampant reports of sexual harassment and mistrust of the chain of command on the USS Germantown, Navy leaders turned to Cmdr. Jason Leach for help. Sailors applauded when Rear Adm. Hugh Wetherald, commander of the Amphibious Force Seventh Fleet, gave Leach command of the Whidbey Island-class dock landing ship in May 2013, after the departure of the previous captain, Cmdr. Carol McKenzie, who could be so harsh that her behavior bordered on verbal abuse, according to a half-dozen sailors who served with both skippers. It turns out, he was the wrong man for the job, according to the...
  • Why Lewinsky Shouldn't Be a GOP Talking Point (Barf alert)

    Bill Clinton uses a car-racing metaphor to explain the difference between rash and calm decision-making in politics. “The great drivers, when the cars get close, the turns get hairy, they calm down, and they see everything, and they act,” he says. “The ones who are fearful and can't concentrate and can't calm down, run into the wall.” Republican leaders should pay attention, because on the issue of whether Clinton’s sex life is relevant 14 years after he left office, they’re once again careening toward a wall. Sen. Rand Paul dredged up Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and his subsequent impeachment,...

    Some Christian employees of American Airlines think the company's anti-harassment policies – which include a warning not to place a Bible in a Muslim's cubicle – discriminate against them. The warning was included in a written reminder of the company's workplace policies. One of the examples of what might be "considered to be harassment under company policy" was: "Placing a Bible in a Muslim co-worker's cubicle, which could support a claim for harassment." One employee who contacted WND noted, "It makes no mention of a Quran being classified as offensive, the Bhagavad-Gita or any other religious book – EXCEPT the...
