U.K. Investigates News Channel After Sexist Rant

From a New York Times story by Aaron Boxerman headlined “U.K. Regulator Investigates News Channel After Sexist Rant”:

Ofcom, Britain’s broadcasting regulator, opened a formal investigation on Thursday into a television news pundit’s tirade against a female journalist after receiving more than 7,000 complaints about his comments on GB News, a right-leaning network.

Laurence Fox, an actor turned right-wing commentator, made a series of demeaning and misogynistic comments about the journalist, Ava Evans, while being interviewed live on Tuesday night by a fellow GB News host, Dan Wootton.
