The scathing report details improper behavior by Dunn and Friend toward Kennedy and former Philly news exec Margaret Cronan. It also detailed a pattern of racism and misogyny wherein new and longtime Black anchors got caught in the crossfire. Newscaster Rahel Solomon left the station after Dunn refused to extend her contract, allegedly because of issues with her appearance. Washington declined to speak with several news organizations for stories about the allegations, but emotionally addressed them during a TV segment on his station.
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips' red; If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. I have seen roses damasked, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks; And in some perfumes is there more delight Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks. I love to hear her speak, yet well I know That music hath a far more pleasing sound; I grant I never saw a goddess go; My mistress when she walks treads on the ground. Tell me where is Fancy bred, Or in the heart or in the head?
