    The Weather Channel got drilled hard in a sexual harassment complaint filed by former on-camera meteorologist Hillary Andrews against broadcast partner Bob Stokes, who was shown the door (in an apparently-long-overdue move) after an arbitrator ruled in Andrews' favor.

    Now Andrews wants to include the arbitrator's ruling in a suit she's filed against Stokes. TWC doesn't want it made public.

    Uh-oh. Too late. The Smoking Gun has almost all of the goods.

    If all of the stuff in the filing is true, Stokes has lots of issues.

    I wonder: Who was the anchor who Stokes allegedly harrassed before Andrews? It never mentions her by name.

    I feel horrible for this, but that picture on the Smoking Gun site of Andrews and Stokes cracks me up. It illustrates fake TV camaraderie perfectly.

    Pretty amazing what was allowed to continue for a long time.

    You watched the guy on camera, and who knew? (We got pretty familiar with him during hurricane time.) Just goes to show you that somebody might look mild-mannered and sane and not be.
