Fox news has been saying the worst things about the LGBTQ+ community for years now, and we are taking back the narrative with this "I'm The One Fox News Warned You About" pin button! The fear Fox News has ingrained into the American people, if not the world, has profoundly hurt the LGBTQ+ community. With this pin, we are taking that away from them and letting them know that we will not be belittled, insulted, or treated less than any human. Fox News has been known to drum up hate for marginalized groups, sadly.
Even internal dissent has emerged within the Fox Corporation as Fox Pride, the LGBTQ+ resource group for employees and allies, condemned Fox News' coverage of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation. In an unusual move, Fox Pride expressed disapproval of Fox News' "hateful" rhetoric in a recent internal Slack message, reported first by FTV Live and later confirmed by the Daily Beast.
The statement from Fox Pride underscored a contradiction between Fox News' on-air treatment of the LGBTQ+ community and the supportive values upheld by Fox Corp for its LGBTQ+ employees internally. The group acknowledged the positive internal support and resources provided by Fox Corp but lamented that the public-facing messaging and rhetoric were regressive and counterproductive for LGBTQ+ acceptance.
Fox News has been under scrutiny for its role in supporting nationwide Republican attacks on LGBTQ+ rights, particularly endorsing laws like Florida's "Don't Say Gay" legislation. Personalities like Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity defended such laws with misleading statements, with Ingraham suggesting they protect children and women, and Hannity encouraging transgender contributor Caitlyn Jenner to describe the anti-LGBTQ+ bill in Florida as "common sense."
The internal message from Fox Pride was prompted by the Human Rights Campaign's decision to downgrade Fox Corp's LGBTQ-friendly employer status, reducing its rating on the Corporate Equality Index from 100 to 75. The HRC spokesperson, Aryn Fields, stated that Fox Corp could no longer maintain its high score if Fox News contributors continued to deny the existence of transgender people, downplay violence against transgender individuals, label parents of LGBTQ+ youth as perverts, or equate leaders of LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion efforts with hateful rhetoric and lies.
This internal dissent within Fox Corporation sheds light on the growing tensions within Rupert Murdoch's media empire. While it is uncommon for Fox employees to openly object to the network's content, recent years have seen instances of dissent, such as the resignations of contributors Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg over issues like Carlson's coverage of the January 6 riot. The internal disapproval also extends to high-profile anchors like Bret Baier and Chris Wallace, the latter of whom has since moved on to CNN+.
