Fox News has reached a settlement with former news anchor Gretchen Carlson for a reported $20m over claims she was fired from the network after she refused sexual advances from chairman Roger Ailes. In response to the suit, Ailes initially maintained that he fired Carlson over poor ratings. He dismissed her and others’ allegations as categorically false and reportedly called on other Fox News anchors to publicly lend their support. One of the loudest voices in Ailes’s defense, Greta Van Susteren, abruptly left the network on Tuesday. Since leaving Fox, Ailes has reportedly begun to advise Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
