What's happening to the New York Post?

Wow I didn't think a newspaper could employ racists but that may be the case with the New York Post. Seems lately there's been quite a few things brought out into the open. Check out the article on gothamist.com, a few interesting parts from the article:

... describing the Post newsroom as a male-dominated frat house run by the crude, misogynistic editor in chief Col Allan.

...

Fenner and Livingston's lawsuit accuses the tabloid of racially-motivated news coverage, and Fenner claims he was "routinely humiliated," "openly cursed at" and subjected to "Jim Crow"-style segregation...

Livingston, who has been a General Assignment Post reporter for 13 years, says she was also banned from the newsroom, paid less than white colleagues with less experience, and denied stories she wanted to write. Further, she alleges that recently-retired star Post reporter Steve Dunleavy is an incorrigible racist who openly referred to a black employee as "nigger" and repeatedly described Hispanics as "spics."
