BREAKING: Fox News Settles With Gretchen Carlson For $20 Million
by J.D. Durkin | 9:11 am, September 6th, 2016


Just months after former network anchor Gretchen Carlson first filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against then-Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes in New Jersey, the network has settled the former host of The Real Story.

Vanity Fair’s Hive is also reporting that an “unprecedented apology” is in the works from Ailes in addition to the $20 million settlement.


The move comes just days after New York Magazine‘s Gabriel Sherman published his lengthy reveal of the network’s practices and the culture of surveillance that Ailes allegedly allowed to persist at 1211 Avenue of the Americas.

Ailes largely responded to the Sherman story by hiring libel lawyer Charles Harder — who anchored Hulk Hogan‘s successfully lucrative $140 million takedown of Gawker — sending “demand” letters to Sherman and NY Mag both.

2. This is just the beginning Fox/News Corp/Ailes will be paying out tens of millions.

@ least 20 women now claim to have been harassed by Ailes and Ailes and Fox spied on
people too/

But even though Bill O'Rielly and Ailes have been caught lying and harassing women
regular Fox viewers will be unaware of these events and worry about Hillary's emails.
