We demand that Lou Dobbs be fired for Tweeting the email and address of Trump sexual assault accuser Jessica Leeds.
The release of personal information, or doxxing, is a known intimidation tactic to silence women and others with whom the doxxer disagrees. It is never an ethical tactic in journalism, since journalists should be concerned with everyone's free speech rights.
It is a dangerous tactic, exposing the victim to online and in person attacks.
Fox News continues its abysmal treatment of women and lack of respect for Constitutional rights with this attack. Fire Lou Dobbs.
In addition, Fox needs to publish standards for ethical and non-discriminatory treatment of women inside and outside the newsroom and how they plan to enforce them

Dear Fox News,
Lou Dobbs doxxed Trump accuser Jessica Leeds today on Twitter, releasing her email and physical address. It was deleted but it went out to all his followers. It is inexcusable for a person to be put at risk to online and in person attacks in this manner.
In addition, it shows a lack of knowledge of Constituonal First Amendment rights, under which you, ironically are protected.
We demand Lou Dobbs be fired. In addition, Fox needs to publish standards for ethical and non-discriminatory treatment of women inside and outside the newsroom and how they plan to enforce them.
