Hughey Newsome, & Jasmine Jefferson, Social Security Works & Alex Pfeiffer, The Daily Caller joins Thom. Vanity Fair reported that Fox so-called News will pay Gretchen Carlson $20 million – and they issued an unprecedented apology that reads in part “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.” This wasn’t just about Ailes – this is about the sexist Mad Men-era culture that dominated Fox and other male-dominated corporations. Are we seeing a fundamental transformation at Fox and a rejection of the Mad Men cult as Baby Boomers are dying off? Or is this apology and payoff just supposed to sanitize Fox’s image?
