The news director of a New York station reportedly asked employees which of the female
reporters was most attractive at a business dinner in 1997. Employees were asked which
they would most likely sleep with as well, reports a New York Injury Lawyer. All
the reporters were mentioned. This specific incident did not occur on company property
or company time. One particular anchor was singled out most by male colleagues on
other occasions as well, often referring to her as “BBB-Big Butt Booty”. A picture of her
with her breasts altered to be much larger than they really are could be seen in various
places around the news station, as a former news assistant testified. The female anchor
had complained to Human Resources about issues with the station before, but the HR
director said none of the complaints were of a sexual nature. At least not until the
anchor accused a male reporter of trying to kiss her when he took her home after a
party. The HR director stated to New York Personal Injury Lawyers that the anchor
wanted to handle the situation without her help, despite feeling threatened by the man.
Further testimony resumes on this case in Brooklyn federal court. The lawsuit was filed
by only two of the female employees, the anchor and another reporter against the news
cable channel. It was not mentioned if the other reporter named as co-plaintiff in this
case was subject to any other harassment beyond the business dinner incident.
