Because of everything that has happened, does this mean Ailes is guilty? Some of the things that Greta had to say seems to point to that conclusion.
Fox News host Greta Van Susteren will be leaving Fox News after 14 years at the network.
Brit Hume will take over as the anchor for “On the Record.”

The news comes the same day that Fox News agreed to settle former anchor Gretchen Carlson’s sexual harassment lawsuit against former Fox New CEO Roger Ailes for $20 million.
Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes about two months ago. Ailes resigned amid an internal investigation two weeks after Carlson filed the suit and denied the allegations.
Van Susteren’s next career move is unclear.
She has described herself as “feminist” who believes in “quality, no special deals, just equality.”
In a statement, Fox News co-presidents Jack Abernethy and Bill Shine said they were “grateful” to Van Susteren for her contributions to the network.
Hume will start Tuesday and will serve in the position through the election.
