Fox News’ parent company has agreed to a landmark $20 million lawsuit settlement for former on-air personality Gretchen Carlson.
The former co-host of “Fox & Friends“ accused recently ousted Fox News chairman, Roger Ailes, of sexual harassment.
Several women corroborated Carlson’s claims that Ailes—who has since left the network with a $40 million exit agreement—routinely made advances toward female on-air talent.
Vanity Fair was the first to report on the agreement, and reports at least two other women who filed complaints against Ailes have settled out of court.
Carlson tweeted the following on Tuesday:
