Fox News is in the hot seat. Civil rights organizations and the Asian American Journalists Association have publicly criticized Fox News for a recent segment filmed in New York City's Chinatown. They say it perpetuates "racist and offensive stereotypes of Chinese Americans." In the "Watters' World" segment on "The O'Reilly Factor," posted online on Monday, correspondent Jesse Watters went to Chinatown. He asked people their thoughts on the 2016 election and China-U.S. relations. And, other questions Watters asked people were, "Do you know karate?" and "Can you guys take care of North Korea for us?"
Fox has reached a settlement in the sexual harassment case involving former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson and former Fox News chief Roger Ailes for reportedly $20 million dollars. On her official website Carlson said she was gratified by the settlement and said she was ready to move on with the next chapter of her life. Video: James Valles reporting (BNO News)
