White House Formally Announces Hiring Of Former Fox News Exec Alleged To Have Shielded Sexual Harassers

CNBC reports:

Bill Shine, who was the co-president of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, has officially joined the Trump administration, the White House said Thursday. Shine will join the White House staff as President Donald Trump’s assistant and deputy chief of staff for communications, the White House said.

Shine “brings over two decades of television programming, communications, and management experience to the role,” the White House said in a statement. The senior executive had resigned from Fox in May 2017, trailing the departure of Fox’s ex-chairman, Roger Ailes, who resigned 10 months earlier after being accused of sexual harassment by a former host.
