There’s something in the water at Fox News, but despite that they still crush their competition.
Gretchen Carlson, Megyn Kelly, and Andrea Tantaros have all accused former FNC head Roger Ailes of sexual harassment and today Carlson received a $20 million settlement.
The network also just brought aboard co-presidents.
Earlier today it was revealed that Greta Van Susteren would be leaving after being on the network for 14 years.
Now, Greta’s husband is saying “…might be litigation for the future.”
From New York Times:
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Ms. Van Susteren wrote that she decided to leave the network late last week, saying, “Fox has not felt like home to me for a few years.” She said that she “could not wait” because of a time-limited exit clause in her contract.
Ms. Van Susteren’s husband, John P. Coale, said in a phone interview on Tuesday that his wife exercised what is known as “key man clause’’ on Friday, which allowed her to leave if Mr. Ailes was not in control.
He said, “There’s so much chaos, it’s very hard to work there.” He said the timing of her departure with the announcement of the settlement with Ms. Carlson was a “coincidence.”
Asked about why she had exercised the key man clause, he said, “There’s more than meets the eye” and that there “might be litigation in the future” so he did not want to talk further.
Fox news isn’t doing too well.
They need to get it together and get it done fast or they may be in some serious trouble.
