Former Fox News reporter and producer Jason Donner has filed a lawsuit against the network, claiming wrongful dismissal after raising concerns about the network’s coverage, including the 2020 election and the Capitol attack.

Donner alleged reprimand for disputing statements made by Rudy Giuliani and criticized the network’s reporting during the Capitol attack.

He also complained about the Tucker Carlson series “Patriot Purge,” which he claimed included false conspiracy theories.

“Allowing highly paid hosts and contributors to make factually false statements about that day is not only demoralizing but creates a hostile work environment,” Donner wrote in a memo.

Donner said he raised these concerns with the network’s human resources department and was subsequently fired, alleging it was due to his absence after a bad reaction to the Covid-19 vaccine.

Donner describes what it was like being at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 while Fox News personalities are accused of downplaying the attack.

Media Matters has documented the Fox News coverage that day, writing: “When Donner heard Fox News’ false reporting of the insurrection at the Capitol, he called the Fox News’ control room and stated, ‘I’m your Capitol Hill Producer inside the Capitol where tear gas is going off on the second floor in the Ohio clock corridor, rioters are storming the building, reports of shots fired outside the House Chamber.”

“I don’t want to hear any of this f—– s— on our air ever again because you’re gonna get us all killed.’”
