|Gretchen Carlson awarded a hefty sum in the sexual harassment lawsuit against Roger Ailes.|
It seems like Gretchen Carlson is about to fuck up some commas. She will be awarded $20 million in damages as well as a public apology from the News Corp family. The lawsuit against Roger Ailes over allegation that sexual harassment forced his resignation from Fox News.
Now Fox News is paying Gretchen and many other women big figures.
"We sincerely regret and apologize for the fact that Gretchen was not treated with the respect and dignity that she and all of our colleagues deserve", 21st Century Fox said in a statement.
In the lawsuit, Gretchen said that Ailes was repeatedly sexually harassing her and numerous colleagues. She also said that Steve Doocy was mistreating her and talking her down while on camera.
In a public statement, Gretchen lets the world know that she's appreciative of how this was settled.
"I'm ready to move on to the next chapter of my life in which I will redouble my efforts to empower women in the workplace. I want to thank all the brave women who came forward to tell their own stories and the many people across the country who embraced and support me in their #StandWithGretchen movement. All women deserve a dignified and respectful workplace in which talent, hard work, and loyalty are recognized, revered and rewarded."
Gretchen for two years recorded Ailes through her iPhone. She got with a tech and her lawyer to record him saying pretty damning things about her and other women. She had her phone tamper proof.
The audio does exist and Fox wanted to put the brakes on this before it would damage its brand even further.
Now Roger Ailes is trying to retaliate against New York Magazine and Gabriel Sherman. He decided to hire the lawyer who went after Gawker Media.
Charles Harder was the lawyer who was successful in helping Hulk Hogan win his lawsuit against Gawker.
Harder sent a letter to the New York Magazine saying that Ailes wants all documents from Gabriel Sherman. Ailes is working on a defamation lawsuit against the magazine and Sherman.

Sherman who broke the stories about the shenanigans going on behind the scenes. In his book, The Loudest Voice in the Room, Sherman described Ailes as a reclusive, paranoid, and relentless attack dog. He would keep firearms in his office. He would have a wooden door that keep prying eyes from looking in. Ailes would have surveillance on everyone and his enemies.
Ailes personal lawyer and friend Susan Estrich continues to defend this canard. Estrich was a feminist and commentator on Fox News.
Estrich called Sherman a "virus" who has a personal vendetta against Ailes.
Ailes is prepping Donald Trump for the debates. Ailes is advising Trump personally. There's talk that the two may create a television network that might compete with Fox News.
