Bill Shine, who was the co-president of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, has officially joined the Trump administration as assistant to the president and deputy chief of staff for communications, CNBC reports.
Shines “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. Less than a month before Shine resigned, evening talk-show juggernaut Bill O’Reilly was removed from the network amid his own allegations of sexual harassment.”
BuzzFeed News quotes a senior Fox News executive: “It’s extraordinary that the president of the United States could hire someone like this. This is someone who is highly knowledgeable of women being cycled through for horrible and degrading behavior by someone who was an absolute monster.”
