Presenter accuses Fox News on diversity

Washington Correspondent

An American television presenter has claimed that African-American staff at Fox News are consistently marginalised – as he gave evidence to the competition watchdog investigating the proposed Fox takeover of Sky. Kelly Wright said there was a culture of systemic and institutional bias in America – declaring “it’s wrong and we are better than this”. Other colleagues have made allegations of sexism, with one claiming she was told her contract wouldn’t be renewed after she complained.
