FOX hosts and other network personalities can be a great source of income for their hosts and producers, but it can also be a source of anxiety and stress, according to a new report from the National Coalition of Anti-Defamation (NCAD).
The NCAD found that Fox hosts and their networks often fail to meet their basic obligations to protect the public, especially in regards to their hosts’ personal safety.
The report found that while the hosts are required to have a protective barrier between them and viewers, their networks fail to adequately enforce these policies and enforce the safety requirements for their guests.
In a statement, Fox said: “Fox News and its affiliates have a responsibility to the public to provide an open forum and an environment that is free of intimidation, harassment, and bias.”
“Hosts and producers are entrusted with the responsibility to protect their audiences, and we take that responsibility seriously,” the network added.
“Hosts are not exempt from our commitment to creating a safe and supportive environment.”
The report comes after a number of high-profile incidents this year involving Fox hosts.
In February, comedian Adam Baldwin was stabbed to death at a New York comedy club after his performance at the annual SNL Weekend Update.
In September, former Fox host Bill O’Reilly was fired for “inappropriate sexual conduct” with a producer.
In the past year, Fox has also faced criticism for its treatment of sexual misconduct allegations against Bill O. and Friends’ Andy Cohen, who resigned from the network after an internal investigation into his alleged harassment.
