Fox News Making HUGE Change… Will You Still Watch?

It seems that Roger Ailes’s tenure as the head of Fox news just might come to an end. It’s been settled on removing the 76 year-old executive, say two sources who spoke on a sexual-harassment investigation of Ailes’s. After going over the initial findings of the probe, James Murdoch has been reported to be arguing that Ailes should be given a choice to resign or face being fired.

From Intelligencer:

Lachlan is more aligned with their father, who thinks that no action should be taken until after the GOP convention this week. Another source confirms that all three are in agreement that Ailes needs to go.

While Gretchen Carlson’s sexual-harassment lawsuit against Ailes sparked the investigation, sources say it has expanded into a wide-ranging inquiry into Ailes’s controversial management style. The interviews are now being conducted at Paul, Weiss’s midtown offices because of concerns that the Fox offices could be bugged, sources say. The lawyers are seeking to interview former female employees of Fox News in addition to current staff. They are also looking into the appropriateness of Ailes’s pressuring employees to speak out on his behalf, against his accusers. For instance, they are focusing on an op-ed written by Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto in which Cavuto called the allegations against Ailes “sick.” As Cavuto is a manager at Fox News (his title is senior VP and managing editor), his comments could be seen as part of a corporate attempt to silence women who would speak out.

What a mess. But, that’s the world we live in today. Virtue has been lost. Do you think this is a just plan?
