Five key questions in Roger Ailes sexual harassment lawsuit

1). Was Carlson fired abruptly on June 23rd following her afternoon show, “The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson?”

The answer to this question is yes, but according to a source close to the situation speaking exclusively to The Hill, Carlson was also offered a severance package, something not included in her legal team’s complaint.

The same source says Carlson indicated she needed time to think it over during a planned vacation starting that day and ending July 6. The two parties left the meeting relatively amicably.
