Fox News Settles With Gretchen Carlson For $20 Million

Fox News Settles With Gretchen Carlson For $20 Million


THE DRAMA AT FOX NEWS
CONTINUES AND THE LATEST NEWS INDICATES THAT THE NETWORK IS
PLANNING ON PAYING GRETCHEN CARLSON A WHOPPING $20 MILLION
IN HER SETTLEMENT AGAINST ROGER AILES. ACCORDING TO SOURCES
THAT SPOKE TO VANITY FAIR AND OTHER MEDIA OUTLETS, THEY PLAN
ON DOING SO WITH THE INTENTION OF AVOIDING FURTHER LEGAL ACTION
AGAINST ROGER AILES AND AGAINST FOX NEWS BY GRETCHEN CARLSON. THE COMPANY HAS AGREED ON BEHALF OF AILES TO SETTLE CARLSON’S
SUIT FOR A STUNNING 20 MILLION ACCORDING TO THREE PEOPLE
FAMILIAR WITH THE SETTLEMENT. THEY ALSO DID SOMETHING KIND OF
UNPRECEDENTED. THEY ISSUED AN APOLOGY TO GRETCHEN CARLSON THAT
READS AS THE FOLLOWING: WE SINCERELY REGRET AND APOLOGIZE FOR THE
FACT THAT GRETCHEN WAS NOT TREATED WITH THE RESPECT AND
DIGNITY THAT SHE AND ALL OF OUR COLLEAGUES DESERVE. AS PART OF
THE LANGUAGE AT THE END OF THE SETTLEMENT, CARLSON HAS AGREED
NOT TO BRING ANY FURTHER LEGAL ACTION AGAINST OTHER EXECUTIVES
AT FOX NEWS OR AGAINST THE COMPANY ITSELF. AGAIN, THIS HAS TO DO WITH OTHER
EXECUTIVES AT FOX NEWS AND THE COMPANY ITSELF. I AM CURIOUS TO SEE IF SHE IS
GOING TO PURSUE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST ROGER. WELL IT’S NOT EXECUTIVES,
RIGHT? PROBABLY. I DON’T KNOW FOR SURE. I’M NOT MANY THINGS. I’M ALSO
NOT LAWYER. ANOTHER THING TO KEEP IN MIND
IS ROGER AILES HAS STARTED WORKING WITH A HIGH LEVEL
ATTORNEY TO START GOING AFTER NEWS COMPANIES THAT HAVE
REPORTED ON THIS IN A WAY THAT HE DID NOT LIKE. THAT IS SOMETHING THAT ROGER
AILES IS KNOWN FOR. HE IS LITIGIOUS WHEN IT COMES TO
IT. THAT AND HARASSING
FEMALE EMPLOYEES. THAT AND HIS EGG SHAPED BODY. THOSE THREE THINGS. HE LOOKS LIKE EVIL HUMPTY
DUMPTY. THE IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS THAT THIS HAS LED
TO A LOT MORE DRAMA AT FOX NEWS CHANNEL AND WE WILL GET TO
THAT IN JUST A SECOND BUT I WANT TO GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO
COMMENT ON WHAT IS GOING ON. ONE OF THE REASONS COMPANIES
MAKING SETTLEMENTS LIKE THIS IS THEY THINK IF WE GIVE
THEM MONEY, IT IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE SHE HAD SOMETHING, LIKE
ROGER AILES ACTUALLY DID AND THE REASON FOR THAT IS THAT IT
DEFINITELY LOOKS LIKE THAT BECAUSE HE DEFINITELY DID IT. THERE IS NO WE YOU HAND OVER $20 MILLION UNLESS SHE, WHO WE KNOW
WAS TAPING A LOT OF THESE INTERACTIONS, HAD GOLD ON THOSE
TAPES. GOD ONLY KNOWS. I WOULD PAY $20 MILLION TO HEAR THE SICK
THINGS THAT HE WAS SAYING TO HER OVER THE COURSE OF
MULTIPLE YEARS. HE DEFINITELY DID IT AND SHE
DEFINITELY WASN’T THE ONLY PERSON. AFTER ALL, REMEMBER THAT SHE AND
OTHERS HAVE SAID IT IS NOT ABOUT ROGER AILES. IT WAS A CULTURE THAT WAS SET UP
AT FOX NEWS AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE TRYING TO DISARM NOT
NECESSARILY THE PERSON THAT WAS HARASSED THE MOST BUT THE
PERSON WHOM I HAVE THE BEST EVIDENCE AGAINST RIGHT NOW. THEY’RE TRYING TO SHUT
HER UP FOR $20 MILLION WHICH IS A GOOD WAY
TO SHUT HER UP. I WILL STOP REPORTING ON THIS
FOR A SMALL FRACTION OF THAT. SAME. ONE IMPORTANT THING TO
KEEP IN MIND IS THAT IT WASN’T JUST GRETCHEN CARLSON THAT CAME
FORWARD WITH THESE ACCUSATIONS. IT WAS DOZENS OF WOMEN. MEGYN
KELLY BEING ONE OF THEM. THIS IDEA OF IT BEING INGRAINED IN
THE CULTURE AT FOX NEWS MAKES A LOT OF SENSE AND I THINK THAT
THIS IS PARTIALLY AN ADMISSION OF GUILT. KNOWING THAT GRETCHEN
CARLSON HAS THAT AUDIO I THINK THE AUDIO IS GOING TO LEAK
SOMEWAY, SOMEHOW. EVENTUALLY WE ARE GOING TO BE ABLE TO HEAR IT. HE MIGHT BE AS GROSS AND GNARLY AS BILL O’REILLY TALKING ABOUT
RUBBING A FALAFEL ALL OVER HIS BODY. I DON’T KNOW, BUT THIS IS
NOW THE SECOND HIGH-LEVEL SEXUAL-HARASSMENT ISSUE THAT IS
HAPPENED AT FOX NEWS. THE FIRST ONE BEING WITH BILL O’REILLY. I
WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED IF IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE
CULTURE. THE SECOND PART OF THIS DRAMA HAS TO DO WITH GRETA
VAN SUSTEREN AND WHO ACTUALLY CAME FORWARD AND DEFENDED ROGER
AILES. WASN’T SHE ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT DEFENDED HIM? I DON’T KNOW. WIPE THAT FROM THE RECORD. I
MIGHT BE WRONG. IT MIGHT NOT OF BEEN THE
DEFENSE, BUT I THINK SHE WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT WAS RUMORED
TO MAYBE LEAVE WITH AILES IF HE LEAVES BECAUSE HE HAS THE
CLAUSE. YOU CAN ARGUE THAT THAT IS
KIND OF A DEFENSE. TAKE WHAT I JUST SAID WITH A
GRAIN OF SALT BECAUSE I WANT TO CONFIRM IT BEFORE I SAY THAT. GRETA VAN SUSTEREN HAS NOW DECIDED TO LEAVE FOX NEWS AND IT
HAPPENED ON THE SAME DAY THAT NEWS HATE ABOUT THIS $20 MILLION
SETTLEMENT FOR GRETCHEN CARLSON. WHAT’S INTERESTING IS GRETA VAN
SUSTEREN ALLEGES THAT THIS HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH
THE SETTLEMENT OR THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST ROGER AILES. IN FACT, THE MEDIA SPOKE TO HER HUSBAND WHICH WAS AN INTERESTING
DECISION, I DON’T KNOW WHY. MAYBE SHE COULDN’T BE
REACHED? THEY SPOKE WITH HER HUSBAND
AND HE IS SAYING THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ROGER AILES BUT THAT IS
BECOMING INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO WORK AT FOX NEWS CHANNEL AND
HER CONTRACT HAS A CLAUSE THAT INDICATES THAT IF ROGER AILES
LEAVES THEN SHE IS ABLE TO TERMINATE HER CONTRACT. HER
CONTRACT WAS NOT UP, IT WAS NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF NEGOTIATIONS,
SHE JUST DECIDED THAT SHE DID NOT TO WORK THERE ANYMORE AND I
THINK THAT IT IS A LITTLE CRAZY TO THINK IT HAS NOTHING TO DO
WITH THE ROGER AILES SITUATION. IF IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH
IT, YOU SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT BY ANNOUNCING YOU ARE LEAVING RIGHT
AFTER THE SETTLEMENT NEWS PEOPLE ARE GOING TO THINK IT DOES. YOU
ALSO ALLUDED TO POSSIBLE LEGAL ACTION. I GUESS
THEORETICALLY IT COULD BE NONRELATED BUT IT PROBABLY HAS
SOME RELATION. I HAVEN’T SEEN THIS CONFIRMED BUT SOMEONE IS
REPORTING THAT TWO OTHER WOMEN REACHED SETTLEMENTS WITH FOX
ALTHOUGH ANDREA TANTAROS WAS NOT ONE OF THEM. IT SEEMS ALMOST
CERTAIN THAT SHE WAS ONE OF THE WOMEN BEING HARASSED. ONE OF
THE THINGS THAT IS MOST DISGUSTING ABOUT THE WHOLE
EPISODE ASIDE FROM THE ACTUAL HARASSMENT IS THE WAY THAT
GRETCHEN CARLSON AND THE OTHER WOMEN HAVE BEEN TREATED BY FOX
NEWS AND BY SOME OF THE HOSTS AT FOX NEWS SINCE THEY STARTED
MAKING ALLEGATIONS AGAINST ROGER AILES. SEAN HANNITY HAD
MULTIPLE TWEETS SAYING GRETCHEN CARLSON IS MAKING IT UP. SHE
DOES NOT KNOW WHAT SHE IS TALKING ABOUT. MAYBE YOU MIGHT
WANT TO RETRACT SOME OF THAT BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE SHE KNEW
WHAT SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT. ONE OF THE REASONS I THINK THAT THEY
DID THAT APOLOGY, THAT WAS PROBABLY A PART OF THE
SETTLEMENT. THEY WERE BADMOUTHING HER, MAKING IT
DIFFICULT FOR HER TO GET WORK AND HURTING HER REPUTATION. THAT HAS LEGAL AND FINANCIAL RAMIFICATIONS AS WELL. IMAGINE
IF YOU ALLEGED SOME DAY THAT CENK UYGUR WAS SEXUALLY
HARASSING YOU AND SO YOU STEP DOWN AND LEGAL ACTION STARTED
AND THEN I AND JR STARTED COMING ON THE AIR BADMOUTHING YOU FOR
WEEKS AND WEEKS. INSULT TO INJURY. THAT WAS GOING ON
BEYOND JUST SEAN HANNITY. MULTIPLE PEOPLE, NOT JUST THE
MALE HOSTS BUT MOST OF THEM. IT IS JUST SICKENING TO WATCH. I LITERALLY CAN’T IMAGINE THE
SCENARIO THAT YOU JUST MENTIONED RIGHT NOW. THAT WOULD BE INSANE.

  • Wouldn't it be interesting if Rupert Murdoch had spoken to Carlson prior to alkaline this coming out with the intention of smacking Ailes down for his support of Trump. Not sayin anythin, I'm jus sayin…

  • I'm not certain they were joking when they said they'd stop reporting on something if they were offered money to stop reporting on that something.

  • Gretchen Carlson getting a $20 Million dollar settlement is completely outrageous.  The fact that Fox settled for that amount is equally outrageous.  This sets a prescient that states that if an company guilty of severe forms of sexual harassment that they can demand these kind of settlement.  I would like to know exactly how they came to this figure.  It certainly can not be based on salary and hardship.  I think that Carlson should be compensated but for $20 Million.  There has to be some element of greed to it.  Technically, she should never have to worry about money for the rest of her life.Let me flip this for a moment.  If a Male is falsely accused of harassment by a women , can he now demand to receive $20m settlement for hardship?   Because Far too often women can make up any story about being harassed and it is rarely questioned.

  • MESSAGE TO CENK AND TYT- From the U.K. and love the show (your tone and honesty in reporting is utterly amazing); Just read an article on Al Jazeera about the UK gov.'s plan to build a 4m high, 1km long wall around the port of Calais, France by the end of this year! There are definitely parallels in rising anti-immigrant sentiment/policy making between the U.S. and the U.K.. I have been delayed by 4-5 hours before when immigrants have been trying to jump on the backs of lorries trying to get into the port of Calais so on one hand I understand the frustration of the port and the UK gov., on the other hand the U.K. has only taken in a relatively small number of asylum seekers and little has been done to help those stuck in the camps. IT'S KIND OF LIKE SOME U.S. "POLITICIAN" WHO WANTS TO BUILD A WALL IN MEXICO!

  • Fox: "Don't let immigrants into the country or they'll rape and sexually abuse all the white women! … Just like Roger Ailes here at Fox News."

  • I suffered 7 civil rights violations here in the state of Florida and have had my file thrown away by the EEOC and the state attorney generals office of this state refuses to take responsibility for negligence of oversite of employers wrong doings. How did Gretchen get her case settled so fast? Only "special" people get to experience justice?

  • They wouldn't be true sex shaming right wingers if they didn't have some twisted sexual perversions themselves.
    This is one of the 3 ingredients of right wing conservativism. Projection.

    Right wing conservativism is based on 3 things (some have only one while others have all 3 of these flaws).
    1-Fear. They scream how strong they are to hide their cowardice.
    2-Deviances which you then project on the world around you. To turn attention away from your twisted ideas you put them on others.
    3-Low IQ.

  • Winston Churchill: "Would you sleep with me for five million pounds?"
    Woman: "For five million pounds I suppose we would"
    Winston Churchill: "Would you sleep with me for five pounds?"
    Woman: "Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!"
    Winston Churchill: "Madam, we've already established that. Now we are haggling about the price”

  • 20 mil is just the start Fox will be paying for a long time I want to see The Big Bil O Head roll in like Rogers he is another douche that needs to be retired

  • the word settlement literally legally means a financial compensation instead of further litigation
    BUT THANKS FOR DEFINING IT NICE AND SLOWLY FOR THE VIEWERS

  • Timothy Tharasingh says:

    I don't really know what settlement means…but I guess it means Gretchen spreads for all at fox for that is what fox is all about..

  • I think this is all BS. I mean, how is it that Greta Van Susteren hasn't filed any complaints about being sexually harassed?

  • stewieismyhomeboy says:

    "I would pay to hear what was said on those tapes." I disagree. I do not want to hear evil Humpty Dumpty trying to talk dirty. I think I'd vomit.

  • gretchen carlson's career was mostly over and she's not getting a new job.

    congrats on getting your 20 million after lawyer fees. enjoy retirement.

  • What amazes me is GRETCHEN CARLSON had her legs spread open every morning on Fox News while Roger Alies was watching from his Office Then she Tapes him and screams Harrassment. She Got Game and  He Got $40 Million Dollars White Privilege is a Bitch !!!

  • So Roger leaves to go work for Trump who also has sexually harassed many woman…..Trump has quite the motley crew of stand up characters

  • LOL I love Ana. Negative body comments are a terrible thing, unless I say it about some asshole I don't like. Then it's like totally cool. lol

  • Wow that was fast. So I hope she makes a show of her own since we all think she is so hot and we want to watch her no matter what she says.

  • David Schlessinger says:

    I don't get it. I just don't get it. If she wasn't treated with respect and dignity, how about apologizing to her and then beginning to treat her with respect and dignity. Why does paying the woman $20 million enter the picture?

  • I'm shocked and surprised about this entire story. First of all, Rog is old and never married. He was seeking friendship not love . He's also known to be quite the joker. People these days are way too touchy and misunderstood. Gretchen did not want the money but an understanding for the working conditions of both sexes in all work place venues!

  • At the end of this video, Anna makes a pitch for people to join for independent media, and not corporate sponsored. After just saying she'd accept big sums of money to stop reporting on stories. That doesn't sound independent.
    While I'm pretty sure she's joking, that isn't the type of thing to joke about when you're pleading for people to support your independence.

  • At least you jerks don't have to worry about beauty queens if you know what I mean.
    Lassie maybe, beauties- NO…HAHAHA. HAHA…

  • Settlements rub me the wrong way.
    Because 20 million for just a regular person is so much it's almost impossible to resist, but for the corporation it's nothing! This means that as long as there are people who need their money out there, they are basically immune to real justice.

  • The problem is that we are just focusing on Fox. This is happening all over media. And most especially in the entertainment industry.

    Honestly, I think most modern feminists are insane. I also think that there is little need for feminism in first world countries today. But these two industries are one of the few places where feminism is still desperately needed. I understand that they can only report on the news as it happens. But there should be a lot more digging into the patriarchal structures of both entertainment and news and the misogyny and abuse that takes place within them. The main problem is that most victims are terrified to come forward. They have too much to lose.

  • Now wait a minute, the young turks say that fat shaming is wrong but Ana just called that guy an evil humpty dumpty!  Ooohhh, the guy was a victim of it here so fat shaming can only happen to woman I guess.  You guys should really play by the PC rules you invent I think.

  • These guys stretch the truth so often to make a point. While Ailes is obviously guilty, nobody at Fox News went on the air on bad mouthed Carlson "for weeks and weeks." A few high profile hosts spoke out in favor of their boss when the story broke, but there was no sustained attack on her by anyone on air.

  • I can no longer watch Fox News without wondering which women gave in to Roger Ailes.
    Maybe the ones who did should wear a scarlet letter "A", or "BJ" when applicable (Hannity).
    Keep the lawsuits coming, ladies.

  • That's a large settlement considering how little she was paid. For a news personality on a large cable network, she got paid only $800,000 yearly as of 2015. So $20 Million was not just one or two years worth of salary to go get lost.

  • oh.my!what is what?Is there possibl to exist?someting link or rape my brain
    with supper computer?I have another trauma here again,,somebody has been hacking my brain,coincidence?

  • oh.my!what is what?Is there possibl to exist?someting link or rape my brain
    with supper computer?I have another trauma here again,,somebody has been hacking my brain,coincidence?

  • IT IS REALLY TERRIBLE WHERE LIKE ON NAKED NEWS THAT WOMEN SHOULD HAVE TO TAKE YOU LASZT STRETCH OF HIDE WHEN SETTLEMENTS INVOLVING BETTER AMOUNTS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE .
    TIMES ARE DIFFERENT .
    THIS IS NOT FOR GETTING HER BRAINS BANGED OUT MERCILESSLY , BUT SHE HAD BEEN WITH THIS FIRM QUITE AWHILE…. PWW

  • So am I the only one who thinks settling is kinda like selling out? She gets a payday and the predator gets an even bigger payday and stays free.

  • TYTs suck. Why would anyone watch them? They are bias and when you are one way in media you are not "the media" Nowadays though so many people are retarded that they give tyt a platform by watching.
    Anyways. This Gretchen gets hit on. Then crys about it. Then receives $20mil in a law suit? Sombodys going to hell. Amen.
