A former CBS News anchor has sued CBS in Federal Court, claiming the network fired him because he was white.

Former CBS News anchor Jeff Vaughn has sued CBS News for $5 million for implementing DEI policies that discriminated against him because he was white.

The lawsuit read, “Despite his show’s successes, his great performance, and his exceptional relationship with his co-anchors, CBS removed Mr. Vaughn in place of a minority news anchor because he was an experienced, older white, heterosexual male.”

The lawsuit continues, “CBS decided that there were too many white males at CBS, and it acted accordingly. It needed to solve its ‘white problem’ by firing successful white males.”

Check out what Newsmax reported:

Former CBS News anchor Jeff Vaughn has sued the broadcaster in federal court in Los Angeles for $5 million, claiming he was fired because of his age, race, gender, and sexual orientation, according to Courthouse News Service.

“Despite his show’s successes, his great performance, and his exceptional relationship with his co-anchors, CBS removed Mr. Vaughn in place of a minority news anchor, because he was an experienced, older white, heterosexual, male,” the complaint read.

In the complaint Vaughn, who worked for CBS Broadcasting for eight years and has more than three decades of experience in broadcast journalism, alleged, “CBS decided that there were too many white males at CBS, and it acted accordingly. It needed to solve its ‘white problem’ by firing successful white males.”

According to the complaint, “implemented a policy that favored the hiring of individuals of certain groups and firing or refusing to hire older, white, heterosexual, males.”

The complaint cited several examples of CBS trying to exclude Vaughn and attempts to leave him out of promotional material despite the fact that he “was the premier evening anchor at that time.”

Per Variety:

A former anchor on KCAL and KCBS has filed a $5 million lawsuit claiming he was fired because he was a white man.

Jeff Vaughn is represented by America First Legal, the conservative legal group that has taken aim at diversity, equity and inclusion programs, calling them illegal “anti-white discrimination.”

Vaughn worked at the CBS-owned station group for eight years, until his departure last September. In the suit, he says he was never given a reason for his firing.

“But it was obvious,” the suit states. “He was fired because he is an older, white, heterosexual, male.”
