The term “news” is a broad and vague term that can be used to describe anything from the latest gossip, to the most impactful events happening around the world. In recent years, news has been associated with sensationalism and clickbaity headlines in an attempt to gain more attention for their articles. How do we define news? What is its purpose?
The why does bad news spread faster is a question that has been asked for decades. It is hard to pinpoint the reason why bad news spreads so quickly, but it is speculated that it could be due to social media.
The popular Good Morning America program, which focuses on daily breaking news, interviews, and coverage of important problems from different subjects with a variety of well-known personalities, has lately made headlines. However, the coverage has not been favorable. Michael Corn, the show’s former executive producer, has been accused of sexually harassing an ABC news producer, Kirstyn Crawford, and another female coworker, Jill McClain, on several occasions while they worked for the network over a lengthy period of time.
What’s the big deal about it?
The complainant further said that despite being aware of the issue, the company did nothing to punish him. According to a complaint filed by the victim in the Supreme Court of the state of New York, the ABC network should have halted Corn’s actions since he had a history of harassing female coworkers and made working conditions difficult.
By 2017, ABC was fully aware of Corn’s attack on the complainant in 2015 on their business trip to Los Angeles, but they chose to ignore it. Instead, because of his commercial attractiveness, they elevated Corn to higher positions and did nothing to remove him from the group. This allowed him to continue his illegal behavior with the employees while also creating a hostile environment.
Corn, on the other hand, has rejected all of the charges leveled against him, claiming that they are all untrue. He defended himself by providing the accuser’s and the accused’s exchanged emails, which revealed no evidence of wrongdoing against her. Michael Corn went on to say that the two ladies made up the whole scenario. He would undoubtedly pursue legal action against anyone who leveled false accusations against him, and he would aggressively defend himself.
ABC7 News is the source of this information.
Meanwhile, an ABC spokesperson claimed the network did not encourage a hostile workplace and instead supported equality, and that it would answer all of the allegations in court. Michael Corn abruptly departed ABC in April of this year to become president of Nexstar Media Group Inc.’s News Nation. Both ABC and Corn offered no explanation for the situation. Next star Media also said unequivocally that they had no opinion on Corn’s employment history prior to joining their company.
The complaint also alleges that a number of other female coworkers have complained to the network about his sexual harassment, bullying, and blackmailing. Nonetheless, no action was done in this respect as well. We’ll have to wait a long for a decision till the higher authorities pronounce someone guilty.
