FOLKENFLIK: Well, the article by Ronan Farrow in The New Yorker makes an argument that there’s a link between that and a question of past tolerance and incidents of sexual harassment against women within the news division.

But the executive producer, the much lauded executive producer of “60 Minutes,” Jeff Fager, himself was accused of tolerating sort of a “Mad Men” atmosphere at “60 Minutes.” And there were two senior producers no longer with the show against whom accusations were lodged over the years but also that he himself at times got in a sense I think the word was handsy at certain instances and that there was one instance in which a woman felt very uncomfortable by his behavior toward her.

Equated with sweatshops back in the ’90’s reported sales of $19 billion last year, but refuses to pay $2.2 million to Honduran garment workers in legally mandated severance. The dispute dates back to January 2009, when two Nike factories in Honduras called Vision Tex and Hugger closed without paying 1,800 workers their hard earned severance and other legally required benefits.
