Nation’s largest newspaper publisher discriminated against white staffers to reach diversity goals, ex-employees’ lawsuit claims – By Candace Hathaway (The Blaze) / Aug 23, 2023

The nation’s largest newspaper publisher, Gannett, has been accused of discriminating against white employees in an effort to reach the company’s diversity goals, according to a class action lawsuit filed last week.

Five current and former Gannett employees claimed that the newspaper publisher launched an effort to diversify its newsrooms, which caused white workers to be passed over for promotions and even fired in some instances.

Gannett brands include USA Today and a vast network of more than 260 local publications that span 47 states. Some of those local media outlets include the Arizona Republic, the Tennessean, the Detroit Free Press, the Des Moines Register, the Columbus Dispatch, Austin American-Statesman, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Indianapolis Star, and Louisville Courier Journal.
