Fox News Anchor Gretchen Carlson Wins $20 Million Settlement Over Sex Harassment Claims

Former Fox New anchor Gretchen Carlson settled her lawsuit with 21st Century Fox for $20 million.  Carlson alleged that Fox News CEO Roger Ailes had made unwanted sexual advances towards her, demoted her, and then let her go when she turned him down.  For a year and a half she had recorded her meetings with Mr. Ailes on her cell phone.  After Carlson filed, about twenty women at Fox came forward about inappropriate behavior from Ailes.  This $20 million settlement is among the largest settlements for a single-plaintiff sexual harassment suit.
