Bill Shine To Get Paid By Fox And WH Simultaneously

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Bill Shine received an $8.4 million severance package upon leaving his post as co-president of Fox News Channel in May 2017, according to a financial disclosure form he filed upon entering Donald Trump’s White House as deputy chief of staff for communications. The document was released to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday, a day after Thanksgiving.

Shine, who officially began working in the White House on July 5, will also receive a bonus and options of about $3.5 million from 21st Century Fox both this year and next year.

That means that Shine will be paid simultaneously by both the White House and the parent company of Fox News, a network that has had close ties to the Trump administration. The severance agreement expires on May 1, 2019.

The Daily Beast reports:

Before becoming President Trump’s deputy chief of staff for communications, Shine was accused in multiple lawsuits of enabling and helping to cover up alleged sexual harassment by Fox News on-air talent and late chairman Roger Ailes.

Upon becoming the Trump administration’s sixth White House communications director in 18 months last July, he received a 68-day extension on his financial disclosure form.
