Make no mistake, Greta Van Susteren did not quit her job at Fox News, she was fired.

WTF's happening?
Courtesy of CNN Money: 

A courier arrived at Van Susteren's Washington, D.C. home at 9 a.m. Tuesday, hand-delivering two letters that said that Van Susteren "was being taken off the air" immediately, according to her husband, John Coale, who is a high-profile Washington lawyer. 

Van Susteren was already planning to leave, but she thought she would be hosting her 7 p.m. program "On the Record" for a few more weeks. 

Yanking her off the air without a chance to say goodbye was "a bit immature," Coale remarked. 

It was also a message from Rupert Murdoch.

Murdoch, the patriarch of Fox's parent company 21st Century Fox, disliked her recent attempt to renegotiate her contract, and the unusual courier visit was a result of that, said one of the sources interviewed for this story. 

The messy breakup is the latest sign of tension -- "chaos," according to Coale -- behind the scenes at Fox News.

Apparently Greta's attempt to renegotiate her contract pissed Murdoch off. Big time.

Get this:

The network announced her departure less than an hour after the courier arrived. Van Susteren was not quoted in the press release. 

Fox then deleted the "On the Record" web site, Van Susteren's biography, and her pioneering Gretawire blog -- essentially erasing her from FoxNews.com.

Ouch!

Van Susteren then went on Facebook to try and spin the story:

Last Thursday night, I made my decision and informed Fox News of my decision at that time 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.

Yeah, that's all bullshit.

    Murdoch shot her in the back as she walked out the door.

    That's not being fired, that's a temper tantrum.

    Ooooh. As a high ranking scientologist, she "pulled this in" (did it to herself) and is "downstat" (a loser).

    Guess she might have to spend time and money auditing more body thetans out (get harshly interrogated and spend thousands to get rid of the things that are holding her back).

  6. Not to worry. Greta and Sarah will be headliners on the Trump Network. Of course, they'll have to flash a lot of leg and cleavage so no one pays attention to the crap coming out of their mouths.

      Ain't no one in this world wanna see those two old tranny-looking middle aged chicks "flash a lot of leg".

      There is no way in hell that Trump would hire those two old dried up hags.

      Greta is 61; $arah's over 50. not any eg most people would want to see. Besides, they'd have to do a face shot once in a while and eeeeuuuuuuuuw change the channel.

      Trump will not hire either Greta or Sarah and for two entirely different reasons!

      She is one broad that didn't need to worry about advances from Ailes due to her physical appearance.

      She was a zero match to her highly sexual counterparts with whom she worked at FOX!

      Plus, she was just mentally and socially non appealing!

    She has been a Scientologist working at the Fox propaganda channel for 14 years and befriended Sarah Palin. I have absolutely no respect for this peawit. You can get a law degree and still be an overall cretin and mindless cultist. She is a case in point.

    Let's see how this purge plays out. It is entertaining. What arises from the ashes will probably be as nasty and dishonest as the old Fox, just with different players.

  13. I wonder what it was that Fox didn't like about her all of a sudden.

    Or what it was that they liked about her 14 years ago.

      Aside from vigorously defending Roger Ailes, at 61 she was probably way past her due date. They like their blondes young and attractive.

    Who cares, these people are overpaid for spreading lies anyway. Next we will find out she is collecting unemployment.

    Trump won't even have to hire illegal aliens or "models" for his new network.

    I bet Sarah is going to think twice about signing a contract for her judge show until after the election.

      There is no judge show. No network was even interested. No, she's hoping for a Trump loss and a new endeavor. I suspect she tried to get on "The Apprentice" and was turned down.

      Her judge show? No one but NO one would watch it. If, god forbid, dRumpf wins this thing, expect her not to have a place anywhere near his Cabinet. She's a dumb shit, and he knows it. Courted her for her base.

      She is rather 'base' as in the definition "being of comparatively low value and having relatively inferior properties".

      She roots around trying to dig up a ride to greater infamy with a passion greater than those truffle pigs. She had her hooks in cruz until she did the math and figured trumpy was a more lucrative target. Now that trumpy benched her she's going after franky the christianist cause he has more planes than trumpy. Plus, he grades his '10s' on a curve unlike donny who wants his surrogates to be attractive and shapely. The poor dear is hopelessly addicted to her fantasy of being someone.

    So there's no mystery about why she was madly defending Roger Ailes against allegations she had no knowledge of... she and Ailes were negotiating her contract.

    I can't imagine who is going to want to employ her.

    It's a crying shame that Sarah can't employ Van Suckeren on her very own TV network, the one that she assumed she'd build from that hilarious little blog she was too bone lazy to maintain.

    HA HA HA! She thinks the world is as dumb as the typical fox viewer. Where ever she ends up, I hope it's radio, she's got the face for it. She doesn't seem to measure up to Pervert Aile's low standards, and she's just pissed that everyone else knows she was fired. Who else got her plug pulled without warning..... rhymes with arah heath alin, the quitter extraordinaire.
