Those ‘glass ceilings’ and ‘misogynists’ show up in such unexpected places, don’t they?
One of the on-air personalities left E! Channel after learning something shocking about her work situation. Unequal pay for the two co-hosts.
Her is Catt Sadler in her own words:
I know first hand that dreams do come true. For the past twelve years, I’ve been living mine out loud as one of the hosts on E television. For more than a decade I’ve walked through the doors at E and traveled into people’s living rooms around the world. I’ve reported from a royal wedding, the Olympics, and the Oscars. I’ve been to film festivals in France, movie premieres in Rio, and fashion week in Paris. I’ve gotten chased by the paparazzi on camera while shopping with Kris Jenner, co-hosted shows with Khloe, Kim and Kourtney, and interviewed Kendall and Kylie back in those early Keeping Up days when no one could remember their names. It has been unpredictable, intoxicating, rewarding and hard work. Five days a week since February 2006. First, for The Daily 10 and later for E News.
Then, this year happened. Daily Pop was born. I was named host which meant double duty. Hosting a live, two-hour daytime show while also hosting E News most nights. It was creatively challenging but genuinely one of the most fulfilling years of my professional career. Coincidentally, around this same time an executive from E brought something alarming to my attention — namely, that there was a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself. More recently, when E reached out to renew and extend my deal, I learned that he wasn’t just making a little more than I was. In fact, he was making close to double my salary for the past several years.
Information is power. Or it should be. We are living in a new era. The gender pay gap is shrinking, although admittedly we have a long way to go. And well, I learned this first hand. My team and I asked for what I know I deserve and were denied repeatedly.
She’s not getting paid the same as her co-host! An executive told her so! And when she asked for equal pay, she was turned down.
Her former cohost’s wife weighed in.
She sees it very differently.
I have always said that there are negatives and positives to social media, and these last 48 hours have proven that to be true. I believe in female empowerment and gender equality, but it is heartbreaking that a network (that truly cares about its employees) is being deemed as sexist when that is simply not true. At one time my husband had a female co-anchor on E! News who made three times his salary. Women are paid accordingly on this network, and the difference in his salary versus theirs did not affect Jason whatsoever because he knows there are always more components to consider when determining one’s salary than gender alone.
On that note, and also important to mention, in a New York Times article from yesterday, an E! spokeswoman confirmed quote “Ms. Sadler’s and Mr. Kennedy’s roles were not comparable.” Since Jason was named the permanent anchor of E! News over two years ago, he has had various co-hosts that rotate throughout the week. A permanent co-host has never been named since the last one left six months ago.
And here’s Liberalism’s Catch-22.
You can accept one of the following two explanations, but not both.
1) That yet another Hollywood Icon has failed to live up to the supposedly ‘High Progressive Standards’ and been as bad as — or actually worse than — all the verybad-horrible-corporate-right-wing-badmen you warn aging Obamazombies about.
The other option is that THIS complaint is based on an inaccurate reading of facts. Which also has implictions:
2) The Feminist claims about glass ceilings and $0.77 on the dollar are a fiction built on a mixture of misunderstandings, overblown claims, and outright lies.
Sure they are Hillary.
Fortunately, we won’t be needing your help to make any important or hard choices. Feel free to go back to your wine (and your whine).

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
