A producer for the CBS news series 60 Minutes now claims that the network “retaliated” against her for filing harassment charges against a fellow CBS employee.
Associate Producer Cassandra Vinograd only joined the 60 Minutes team’s London bureau in June of this year. But according to Vinograd, senior producer Michael Gavshon quickly began acting inappropriately, The Hill reported.
Vinograd claims that Gavshon began sending her inappropriate things via text or email including a photo of him and his friends urinating on a fire.
The complainant says she alerted the network to the behavior. However, she also alleges that the network began retaliating against her after she filed the report.
Vinograd says that she was suddenly removed from her position.
The CBS employee has now filed a lawsuit in New York over the incidents.
“We look forward to holding CBS accountable for its unlawful conduct as alleged in the complaint,” Vinograd’s attorney said.
“Contrary to CBS’s claims that it is doing the right thing when female employees report gender-related misconduct, as alleged, it appears that no meaningful changes to the culture at CBS have been made. It appears that CBS continues to protect senior male talent at the expense of junior women – business as usual,” Jeanne M. Christensen, a representative of Vinograd’s lawyers said.
Seems like more media hypocrisy, doesn’t it?
While they constant parade about as our betters, they indulge the behavior of the worst of us and expect never to get caught.
