LAS VEGAS — (04-03-22) — The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) confirmed to JRL CHARTS LGBT Politics News that it has removed Fox News’ score from its LGBT Corporate Equality Index, removing it from the list of LGBT preferred employers.

“Fox News has a history of sharing misinformation and disinformation about the LGBTQ+ community. We know from our own research, which we put out earlier this week, what their disinformation and misinformation means for the LGBTQ+ community: perpetuating stigma and marginalization of transgender and non-binary people,” Aryn Fields, senior press secretary at HRC, said in a statement.

Fields continued…“At a time when transgender people – especially transgender children – are under attack in statehouses across the country, rhetoric has real consequences. The FOX News network’s coverage of the LGBTQ community within the last 72 hours had contributed to a drop in its Corporate Equality Index score, which dropped from 100 to 75.

We can no longer allow Fox Corporation to maintain it’s score if Fox News personalities and contributors continue to deny the existence of transgender people, minimize the violence transgender individuals face, refer to parents of LGBTQ+ youth as perverts, or equate leaders of LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusions efforts with sex offenders,” Fields said. “Each of these actions happened in the last 72 hours. Enough is enough.” said Fields.

The conservative right wing propaganda cable news network responded to news outlets claiming that it offers a variety of LGBT benefits that include mastectomy surgery for adults, puberty blockers for transgender adolescents, facial feminization surgery, reduction thyroid chondroplasty and tracheal shave.

Fox News even went so far as to point out that they have just hired conservative transgender Caitlyn Jenner as a contributor.
