    Roger Ailes will step aside as chairman and CEO of Fox News Channel, parent company 21st Century Fox announced.
    Rupert Murdoch will "become chairman and acting CEO of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network," according to the official announcement.

    “Roger Ailes has made a remarkable contribution to our company and our country," said Murdoch in a statement.

    Ailes' fall from the very top of the TV world was a swift one, coming just about two weeks after Gretchen Carlson, a former anchor on the morning show “Fox & Friends,” filed a sexual harassment suit against Ailes. That suit spurred Fox to hire the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison to conduct an investigation into Ailes’ conduct. While the investigation is ongoing and any findings have not been made public, the early reports were apparently damning enough to cause Fox to force Ailes’ hand.

    I wonder if the personalities (who pledged loyalty) will follow through and walk out.

    Might see a Breitbart News Network come in unless the situation is quelled.

    This has to be Ailes's worst nightmare, to be completely cucked by the liberals.

    You're not too bright are you?

    Sexual harassment is political correctness according to conservatives, so he was cucked by liberals.

    Should have left her alone... Ride it out. It's all messed up now.
    Love how Megan Fox kept
    Quiet as long as it benefited her....that's seems to be the case 100% of the time, until something blows up.
    Too much $$ at stake.

    I wonder if they really will make the channel more liberal. If so, then every major news network on TV would be left wing.
