Judicial Watch announced a hearing this week against Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s racist interview policy. Lightfoot has reportedly only allowed interviews to “journalists of color.”
Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton joined Fox News to discuss details of the situation. The organization “filed the lawsuit after Catenacci, a white journalist, emailed Mayor Lightfoot’s office requesting a one-on-one interview with the Mayor. The office never replied to the request or to two additional follow-up emails from Catenacci,” according to a Judicial Watch press release.
“The lawsuit and subsequent motion assert that Mayor Lightfoot’s refusal to be interviewed by Catenacci violates the Daily Caller News Foundation’s and his First Amendment rights and Catenacci’s right to equal protection,” the release added.
In the interview, Fox News noted “essentially the judge ordered the mayor and the city to state on the record and present to the court its policy to clarify its policy and what that means is essentially the city will have to say, yes, for one day we did discriminate based on race.
“And then from that point forward we’ll see what they give the court tomorrow, but from that point forward then the trial can proceed and we can argue that when I requested an interview on that day that they said they were discriminating.”
