Two former employees of CNN and TBS, respectively, have filed a class action discrimination lawsuit against TBS, CNN and holding company Time/Warner. In the suit they allege a pattern and practice of racial discrimination in evaluations, compensation and promotion.
They also charge CNN and TBS with having a "glass ceiling," where African Americans were blocked from promotions and a "glass wall," where Blacks were discouraged from working in certain divisions.
