Meanwhile, women's organization UltraViolet issued a statement, saying "For years, Bill Shine actively covered up Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly's sexual misconduct at Fox News, created and fostered a toxic work environment at the network, and actively retaliated against women who reported their abuse".

Former Fox News co-president Bill Shine has been named White House deputy chief of staff for communications and assistant to the president, the White House announced Thursday.

The Be Fierce: Stop Harassment and Take Your Power Back author's lawsuit later lead to Ailes' resignation, which rocked the Fox News Network's foundation and won Carlson a $20 million settlement.

Shine was at the White House last Wednesda, and brings over two decades of experience to the role.

As Carlson noted, the appointment comes two years after her own sexual harassment lawsuit.
