If you click all the way through the links, this whole thing originated in a story at Gawker, which quotes an unnamed "Fox executive" as the one and only source for the $8 million figure. Gawker stuck it in the midst of other stories that demonstrate just how serious a news outlet Gawker really is, with headlines like, "Pranksters Convince Alcoholic Friend He's Been in a Coma for 10 Years," and "Teen Claims Krokodil Ate Her Genitals," and "Childless Adults Should Not Have Christmas." POLITICO seems to be the only other publication willing to stick the number out there. HuffPo and NYT reported the story in a small way, but even they wouldn't touch the settlement figure.

Whether it's political or not, the story is shit.

Tell that to NY Times, you know, down the street from FOX NEWS.  Incidentally, SAME MO as when they paid off OREILLY'
s sexual harrassment case!  "Will neither confirm or deny"....


When Roger Ailes banished his one-time confidante Brian Lewis from the Fox News headquarters over the summer, potentially for leaking insider info, the company charged that Lewis had engaged in “financial irregularities” and “multiple, material and significant breaches of his employment contract.” The fired top executive’s lawyer played hardball, noting, “Ailes and News Corp. have a lot more to fear from Brian Lewis telling the truth about them than Brian Lewis has to fear from Roger Ailes and his toadies telling lies about Brian Lewis,” and things got momentarily exciting. Since then, though, nothing, probably because Fox News ponied up.

The New York Times reports today that neither side would confirm a rumored settlement — “a deal that would pay [Lewis] a sizable sum to remain quiet about whatever he knows about operations at the notoriously secretive company” — and that the network has responded with only “silence.”

  • Alex, I'll try "THINGS ONLY I KNOW" for $200.
And ANOTHER unamed source telling NEW YORK Magazine the same thing.  (You know--NY Magazine, where AISLES offices are.  Where FOX News headquarters is.  I think they might have a little interest story).  INCIDENTALLY, same EXACT MO as when FOX paid off OREILLY's sexual harrassment case to keep it from going to court.  $4million, then as I remember, and that was awhile back.

It was 2004. The monetary value of the settlement has never been disclosed, though it is known that the original harassment suit sought $60 million damages plus costs, and the suit had been preceded by an allegation of felony attempted extortion against the woman in the case. Roger Ailes' surname contains only one "s."

And your OP is still shit.

You don't look good when you can not even figure out the quote function.  Does admin need to give you a time out.

Hillary Clinton worked for Nixon...and was fired for unethical behavior in the Nixon Administration.

Your point, aside from the one on top of your head?
  Except the MAN named in RW land as having fired her among SAID HE DIDN'T!  And he went on to say, he had no authority to do so.  At the end of HER and the other attorneys on that  part of the Watergate case had finished their they were all LET GO!   Maybe that is a FIRING.  When I and the other 169 employees were 'let go' during a downsizing, I guess we were all 'fired'??

I sure don't see reputable links showing she was not fired.
