Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren abruptly left the network last week in the turbulence following former CEO Roger Ailes' departure, citing failed efforts to renegotiate her contract. While Van Susteren wants to eventually return to TV, "if I don't, that's okay too," she told Politico.

After all, what Van Susteren might be lacking in a television platform she has found on social media, hammering her former employer in lengthy Facebook posts and engaging with her followers on Twitter:

TV is really fun, but I've always liked the interactive stuff on social media, where you get to respond to comments and stuff like that. It's better suited for my nature than perhaps sitting in a TV studio. I love being in a TV studio — don't get me wrong; I hope to go back to TV. But it's fascinating how you can reach so many people. And because I've built up this audience over so many years they are migrating to my Facebook page ... I think it's really just a community, sort of like a neighborhood block, it's almost like a block party. [Politico]

As for where she might eventually end up, "as long as you don't have command influence … I'll go any place," Van Susteren said. Read more about what's on her mind in the meantime at Politico.
