Within the October 12 episode of the NBC comedy Nice Information, titled “Honeypot!” the crew is being subjected to sexual harassment within the office. Since it is a lady harassing the lads, nonetheless, coworkers are hesitant to imagine the reality, and it seems the harasser is doing it within the identify of office equality. In the middle of discussing all of this, they make the anticipated jokes about Fox Information and utterly compelled a joke about Benghazi.
With Harvey Weinstein information breaking a number of instances a day (not that the liberal media is protecting it), this episode couldn’t have been extra well timed. When Greg (Adam Campbell) comes ahead and tells Katie (Briga Heelan) that their boss Diana (Tina Fey) sexually harassed him, the opposite males at their television station office come ahead with their very own tales as nicely. The ladies utterly low cost their tales, saying the lads should have misunderstood, asking why they have been in her workplace alone in the course of the day and what they have been sporting. By reversing the genders, it shone a lightweight on the way in which ladies will be handled once they come ahead after being sexually harassed, even saying that the Cosby jurors required “greater than 60” ladies to return ahead in an effort to come to a verdict.
Not happy to have an efficient scene, they turned to politics. Portia (Nicole Richie) says that the lads are making up the accusations as a result of they cannot stand having a girl for a boss. “This at all times occurs. Males simply cannot stand seeing a girl in energy, in order that they’ll do something to tear her down. Hillary ‘Did Benghazi.’” I hate to interrupt it to you, however she did. Then once more, since these characters work in a information station, they in all probability weren’t actually into these information.
When Katie lastly confronts Diana about her habits, it seems that she had a reasonably uncommon cause for it – office equality.
Diana: I’ve fought for office equality for 25 years. I simply need what the lads get: $40 million to go away. Roger Ailes received 40 only for whipping it out. Billy Bush received 9 only for guffawing about boobies. Invoice O’Reilly received 25. However no, I simply maintain succeeding and succeeding and succeeding and utilizing westbound worldwide flights to create a 175-hour workweek. And now they wanna promote me once more. I simply wanna go away, Carol. Why will not they let me go away?
Whereas it is true that these males received payouts once they have been fired after allegations of inappropriate habits, it is fairly bizarre that she could not give you an instance of a liberal man who had been accused of sexual harassment. It isn’t as if there aren’t choices from a strong progressive PR agency to a president (and a Hollywood mogul, which Tina Fey appeared to know a number of years in the past) from which to decide on.
Apart from, rising the variety of victims is not actually the form of equality sane ladies keep in mind. Precise victims would not want their experiences on anybody, even to show some extent. Two wrongs do not make a proper.
Later, earlier than she leaves for her subsequent promotion, Diana says to Katie, “Possibly sometime while you get to be in my place, we’ll reside in a world the place a girl will be a creep and go residence with an enormous golden parachute,” to which Katie replies, “That feels like a world price preventing for.”
I am fairly positive it isn’t.
