Fox News Settles With Gretchen Carlson; Greta Van Susteren Abrubtly Quits the Network

I taught political science all day, but did catch this headline at some point.

At NYT, "Fox Settles With Gretchen Carlson Over Roger Ailes Sex Harassment Claims."

Carlson settled for $20 million, which is freakin huge.

And Greta quit the network, apparently over contract negotiations --- and a release clause made her departure time sensitive. She tweeted earlier that the time to go was now.

I really like Greta. I hope she lands another network gig. She's so sweet and unassuming.

And see Hadas Gold, at Politico as well:

Added: There's a lot of detail at this CNN report, "Why Greta Van Susteren is leaving Fox News so suddenly."
