CNN anchor Greta Van Susteren (The Point, Burden of Proof) is defecting to rival outlet Fox News Channel to host its 10 pm talk show. The onetime legal analyst will replace Paula Zahn, who left Fox News for CNN last September. Insiders say Fox offered her a salary in the $1 million range. Says Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes: "Greta has distinguished herself in both the legal and journalism fields and has also demonstrated an ability to attract a loyal viewership." Translation: Take that, CNN.
