A Soft Landing Place

If the name “Bill Shine” doesn’t ring a bell, you’re not alone.  Shine was a Fox News executive who was pushed out the door – no one uses the term “fired,” although that’s what it sounded like at the time – when Fox decided it was time to clean up its sexual harassment quagmire.

At the time of Shine’s departure from Fox News he was co-president of the network, taking that job after working as the right-hand man of Roger Ailes, the network’s chief sexual harasser.  Shine allegedly knew about the antics of Ailes and those of Fox’s deputy chief sexual harasser, Bill O’Reilly, but did nothing about them and possibly even facilitated some of them himself.

With a resume like that, you’d think it might be hard for Shine to find another gig. Fortunately, he found one:

He’s the new White House deputy chief of staff for communications.

Because if ever there was a place where a guy who doesn’t see sexual harassment as a problem would be welcome, it’s the Trump White House.
