Roger Ailes used to be the head of Fox News but left after it was revealed that he was subjecting countless female employees to sexual harassment. The thing that got the whole thing moving was a lawsuit from former Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson. When Ailes officially left the company, he did so with a $40 million golden parachute.
Today, Gretchen Carlson settled her suit with Fox News for a reported $20 million, exactly half what her accuser walked away with.
This is all to say, here is a tweet that will make your blood boil.
Ailes got twice as much to leave Fox as Carlson got for being relentlessly harassed by him.
