The conservative link aggregator site Drudge Report reported
Tuesday afternoon that Fox News CEO Roger Ailes was leaving his
post as an investigation into Ailes’ alleged sexual harassment of
employees is underway.
While the site’s signature blaring siren landing page featured the
breaking headline, no source was immediately provided.
It would be hard to overstate the influence Ailes held over modern political discourse here in the U.S. Fox News changed the country, and Ailes was Fox News.
As for Drudge’s source — it has to be Rupert Murdoch, or one of his sons.
Update: 21st Century Fox statement on Twitter:
21CF statement: Roger is at work. The review is ongoing. The only
agreement that is in place is his existing employment agreement.
But The New York Times reports that his tenure is all but over.
