Familiar face to cable network's viewers


(LA TIMES) Conservative commentator Tucker Carlson is getting his own nightly program on Fox News Channel starting Nov. 14, according to people familiar with the plan.

Carlson is taking over the 7 p.m. ET time period long held by Greta Van Susteren, who left earlier this year over a contract dispute. Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume has filled in since Van Susteren’s departure in early September.

A Fox News spokesperson declined comment when asked about the plan for Carlson on Wednesday. But word that the program is close to a done deal is already making its way around Washington circles.

'Fox has not felt like home for a few years': Greta van Susteren, who defended Roger Ailes during sexual harassment scandal, leaves Fox News - as it is revealed the network reached a $20million deal with Gretchen Carlson

Greta van Susteren leaves Fox News after 14 years

Veteran Fox News anchor Greta van Susteren is leaving the network after more than 14 years, it has been announced on the same day as Gretchen Carlson settled her lawsuit against the network. Van Susteren (main), who anchored shows for the network across different time-slots since 2002, will be replaced by senior political analyst Brit Hume immediately as host of On the Record, a statement read. The 62-year-old's abrupt departure is reportedly the result of a 'financial disagreement'. Van Susteren had previously stood by comments she made defending Ailes against sexual harassment allegations, while also discrediting Carlson's claims against her former boss. 'This doesn't have any ring of truth to me. I would have heard it. People don't keep things silent,' she said in an interview.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Born: 11-Jun-1955
Birthplace: Appleton, WI

Gender: Female
Religion: Scientology
Race or Ethnicity: White

Occupation: Journalist, Attorney

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Fox News journalist, plastic surgery victim

Greta Van Susteren covers legal matters for Fox News, and handled similar duties at Cable News Network from 1991 until leaving to join Fox in 2002. She has two law degrees and still works as an attorney, having handled court cases from divorce to murder. Until 1999 she was an adjunct law professor at Georgetown Law Center.

Van Susteren is a member and large-scale donor to the Church of Scientology, which teaches that souls of murdered space aliens from 75 million years ago are now attached to Earthlings' bodies, and that for a fee the Church can have these cumbersome parasites removed. The top accountant at Van Susteren's law firm is the mother of Scientology chief David Miscavige. It is widely rumored that during her time at CNN Van Susteren pressured network executives to kill an investigation into Applied Scholastics, an "educational organization" that operates under at least half a dozen different names and is apparently controlled by the Church of Scientology.

Her father was Urban Van Susteren, a County Judge in Wisconsin who was also a close friend of Sen Joseph McCarthy. He was campaign manager for McCarthy's smear-filled 1946 campaign that won the Senate seat from Sen Robert M. La Follette, Jr., who killed himself several years later. While McCarthy was a Senator, he roomed in the Van Susteren house when he was not in the nation's capitol.

Van Susteren's husband, John Coale, is a wealthy trial lawyer whose clients include victims of such disasters as the Union Carbide accident in Bhopal and the 1996 Valuejet crash in the Everglades. He represented Lisa Marie Presley as she divorced Michael Jackson. Van Susteren is a partner in her husband's law firm, and in 1995 they were sanctioned by West Virginia's Lawyer Disciplinary Board for inappropriate solicitation of prospective clients -- "ambulance chasing", in layman's terms.

The Church of Scientology is disdainful of psychiatry, but Van Susteren's sister, Lise Van Susteren, is a prominent psychiatrist who has provided psychiatric assessments of foreign leaders for the CIA. Her husband is Jonathan Kempner, the president and CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association, a powerful lobbying group for the real estate finance industry. Lise Van Susteren provided funding for a superb 1998 baseball documentary, The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg, and she also ran for the US Senate in Maryland in 2006 but lost. Their brother, Dirk Van Susteren, is an editor at the Rutland Herald and Barre-Montpelier Times Argus in Vermont, and wrote the biography Howard Dean: A Citizen's Guide to the Man Who Would Be President.
