A busy morning at Fox News central: 21st Century Fox announced a harassment suit settlement with Gretchen Carlson and offered a public apology to Carlson, and then shortly thereafter, Greta Van Susteren announced she would depart Fox News effective immediately. Gabriel Sherman covers both stories, and Brian Steinberg says Roger Ailes might seek legal action against Sherman for his relentless reporting on Ailes's behavior at Fox News. Fox News anchor Bret Baier said in an interview that he's not comfortable with the idea of Ailes advising Donald Trump. Brian Stelter reports on the Carlson settlement, as does Eriq Gardner.
