Fox News Host Suggests Men Are The Ones Facing Difficulties And Discrimination In The Workplace
Men have it so tough. Well, that's what white, educated and wealthy Fox News host Tucker Carlson certainly thinks.
During yesterday's "Outnumbered" show, Carlson and his female cohorts were discussing the news that New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson was ousted over unequal pay issues she had with her bosses, namely NYT published Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. (Sulzberger issued a statement claiming that this was not the case at all).
When it got down to it, Carlson admitted that he simply couldn't believe that women had any gender-based difficulties in the work place (that pesky issue of female journalists making only 82 cents to every dollar male journalists are paid doesn't count, apparently).
According to Carlson, it's in fact not women who face unique challenges, but men.
This idea that women are suffering, that's just ridiculous! Men are suffering.
Thankfully, the other women anchors of the show disagreed heartily with this statement, (obviously) insisting that women were still unfortunately discriminated against in professional atmospheres, or at least had a slew of additional and different challenges to confront.
