Kansas City Newsie Earns Paltry Lost Wages Payout After Pricey Discrimination Claim

It'll cost her any future job in pro-news whilst corporate insurance will take a hit along with all future minority women who want to step up to the higher levels of the news game. This one is a loser for just about everybody involved who didn't get paid up front . . . Take a look:

Former Kansas City TV Reporter Gets Lost Wages After Winning Retaliation Claims Against KSHB

A judge has awarded former Kansas City television reporter Lisa Benson Cooper $110,000 in lost wages and her attorneys nearly $692,000 in legal fees in her retaliation case against KSHB-TV Channel 41. The judge, however, denied their requests for larger amounts.

She should be suing her lawyers for getting six times more money than she got! This just shows you that the race card is wearing out, she needs to find another excuse for her firing like she sucked at her job which is the real truth.

Well worth it to get rid of that stupid bitch. I hate lawyers but I’m glad she got so little and they got way more than she did. She’ll never get another decent job. She has no skill and used her only chance with the race card.

"Cooper said she was writing a book about her experiences"

Of fucking course. Don't all losers write books?

Black privilege: you can always sue Whitey when you're bad at your job.

She should be embarrassed of herself but she won’t because she is colored. They are incapable of being embarrassed.

First a book.
And then maybe a diagnosis of PTSD,
And then, who knows?
Maybe even a political career.
Happens all the time!

As usual, the attorneys are the real winners.

So it's a little bit misleading, but it looks like in total she got $110k in lost wages + $26k in damages and $175k in punitive damages. In total looks like she's taking in $311k. Not bad. I suspect the $110k at least is taxable, not sure about the damages. Don't spend it all in one place.

Her lawyers made out fucking awesome IMO.
