This day was going to come sooner or later. It’s a shame a bogus sexual harassment claim was used a fulcrum in a power struggle between Ailes and Murdoch two sons.
AP reports Fox News Channel is minus founding leader Roger Ailes but not its direction, Rupert Murdoch vowed."I am personally committed to ensuring that Fox News remains a distinctive, powerful voice. Our nation needs a robust Fox News to resonate from every corner of the country," Murdoch said in a statement Thursday after Ailes, 76, resigned under pressure as chief executive while fighting a workplace misconduct suit.The vacuum left by his departure after two decades will be filled for now by Murdoch, 85, the executive chairman of network parent 21st Century Fox. He will run Fox News and its sister Fox Business Network, which Ailes had also led, until a successor is found.
If I were NewsMax channel, I would snatch up Ailes in a heartbeat.
