On Friday, Fox News Digital reported how an ex-staffer for Democrat Congresswoman Katie Porter (CA-45) went public with allegations that Porter made racist comments to members of her staff, and “ridiculed people for reporting sexual harassment.” In the days since this report, the big three networks (ABC, CBS, & NBC) ignored the news of Porter’s toxic work environment during their morning and evening broadcasts on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
Instead of reporting Porter’s apparent racial slurs and other inappropriate comments against her staff, on Monday evening the three nightly newscasts (ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News) covered a scaffolding collapse in Charlotte, North Carolina (ABC & NBC), and actor Jeremy Renner’s injury in a snow plow accident (CBS).
Apparently, those stories were bigger news than a recently reelected Democrat congresswoman using racial slurs when talking to her staff.
According to Sasha Georgiades, a Navy veteran and former Wounded Warrior fellow who worked for Porter, the leftwing congresswoman “ridiculed people after they had reported sexual harassment in her office” and even “made fun of individuals whose parents passed away from COVID.”
This comes after leaked text messages showing Porter firing Georgiades for allegedly giving her COVID.
“Basically told the individual to grow up,” Georgiades said whenever a staffer had filed an incident of sexual harassment against someone in Porter’s office.
Georgiades isn’t the only one who suffered from Porter’s abuse. A Twitter account called Dear White Staffers posted screenshots sent to them by anonymous ex-Porter staffers which reveal how toxic her office has been over the years.

The account also accused Porter of being “completely disinterested” in representing her constituents in Congress.
You can bet that if a Republican was accused of this behavior, it would be covered on every morning and evening newscast on all three networks.
