Former Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren on Thursday demanded the network give back all the personal photos and videos from her blog that were reportedly deleted without notice.

“I am hoping Fox News will give me all my personal photos and video from my blog GretaWire that they took down without giving me any notice,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “I have pictures and video I took in North Korea, in Sudan, Iraq of my pets, friends, etc. that I don’t have copies of. There are almost 15 years of memories. How about my pictures of GretaHome and Acadmey [sic] in Haiti? Of the children? I want those pictures and I don’t have copies of them all.”

“Even if there is a legal right for them to not return them — and I don’t know that there is — there is also a fundamental decency,” she wrote. “Many of the videos posted on GretaWire were taken by me on my camera equipment and many are just personal as I brought the viewers into my life and I went into theirs.”

The post came after Ms. Van Susteren unexpectedly announced her departure from the network on Tuesday, just hours after 21st Century Fox announced it had settled Gretchen Carlson’s sexual harassment case against former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. Ms. Van Susterenwrote on Facebook, “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.”

In a subsequent post, Ms. Van Susteren wrote that Fox had already redirected the websites GretaWire.com and Greta.com to the Fox News landing page. Only problem is Fox doesn’t own Greta.com.

“Obviously that is not right since I own it and they do not,” Ms. Van Susteren wrote. “So I then went into my own domain of Greta.com and redirected it to where I want it to go.”

Greta.com now redirects to the Maryland-based PetConnect Rescue website.
