(CBS News) – Eliza Dushku wants to set the record straight. The actress says her settlement with CBS has nothing to do with her inability to “take a joke” and everything to do with harassment. The Watertown native, who received a $9.5 million settlement from CBS earlier this year, penned an Op-Ed in The Boston Globe on Wednesday detailing alleged harassment from Michael Weatherly, the lead actor on “Bull.”
