“I have a very long-term deal,” she said about her arrangement with the conservative-friendly cable news network, adding that if she ever loses her show on Fox she’ll be happy to return to teaching at Georgetown or re-enter law practice.
“I have no reason to curry favor with Roger Ailes. I can assure you that there’s nothing Roger can do for me or against me. My contract is with the corporation. I’m not trying to get a new one.”
Yes, I have left the Fox News Channel. On Thursday night, I made my decision and informed Fox News of my decision that I was leaving Fox News Channel per my contract.Fox has not felt like home to me for a few years and I took advantage of the clause in my contract which allows me to leave now. The clause had a time limitation, meaning I could not wait.I love my staff, I love my colleagues, and I love the crews. That is the hardest part of this decision as they are wonderful people.And most of all? I love the viewers — even the ones who have gotten mad at me over the years and taken swipes. :)I hope to continue my career in broadcasting.

At the outset of the Roger Ailes investigation, right after Gretchen Carlson lawsuit hit the papers, I said:1/ I never heard of the sexual harassment allegations – no one ever came to me and said anything to me about it – not once;2/ I never saw it3/ It never happened to meand4/ I said that Gretchen Carlson was unhappy when she was at Fox News (she told me that a few years back when we both happened to be in London covering the same story but never said it was sexual harassment.)
