Gretchen Carlson Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit For $20 Million

Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson has settled her sexual harassment lawsuit against Roger Ailes and Fox News for $20 million.

Carlson had alleged the lawsuit that spelled the end of Roger Ailes as its chief executive that she was demoted and fired because she rejected Ailes' sexual advances and complained about harassment.

Along with the $20 million, none of which comes out of Ailes' pocket, Carlson was given a public apology.

"We regret and apologize for the fact that Gretchen was not treated with the respect and dignity that she and all of our colleagues deserve," the cable news channel said in a statement.

Carlson thanked "all the brave women" who came forward to support her and share their own experiences.

"All women deserve a dignified and respectful workplace," she said.

Meanwhile, Greta Van Susteren also departed Fox News on Tuesday.

Without elaborating, the host said the network "has not felt like home to me for a few years."

She's being temporarily replaced in her 7 PM ET time slot by Brit Hume.
