There have been rumors for weeks of a shake-up at FOX News.
Apparently the man most credited for the channel’s success has been up to some disgusting personal behavior that recently came to light following a law suit filed by a fired on-air talent.
The Washington Times has the scoop…
Rupert Murdoch and his two sons have decided to remove Roger Ailes as CEO of Fox News following a sexual harassment lawsuit by former anchor Gretchen Carlson, New York Magazine reported Monday.
The three are in agreement that the 76-year-old executive should go, but they haven’t agreed on the timing, the magazine reported, citing anonymous sources.
All of this is following very public allegations of vile sexual misconduct by Ailes by fired star Gretchen Carlson, but has now apprently expanded far beyond that…
An investigation by New York law firm Paul, Weiss into Ms. Carlson’s allegations against Mr. Ailes has expanded into “a wide-ranging inquiry into his controversial management style,” the report said.
The law firm is now conducting interviews with current and former female Fox News staffers in their midtown offices “because of concerns that the Fox offices are bugged.”
Updates as they become available.
