‘An insult to women’: newly hired ex-Fox exec fuels new turmoil at White House

Alexandra Brodsky, a fellow at the National Women’s Law Center, said Shine’s arrival at the White House was especially striking against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement and a widespread reckoning around sexual harassment and assault. “It sends a message that this White House not only tolerates but celebrates men responsible, directly or indirectly, for sexual harassment,” she said. Those who “enabled abuses” were often overlooked, Brodsky said. “Serial harassers are only able to be serial harassers because of all of the people who hush victims for them,” she said. “Bill Shine is the perfect example of a serial enabler of serial harassers.”
