Is Fox News chief Roger Ailes on his way out?
If comments from Rupert Murdoch’s family circle are an indication, the answer would be yes.
In a story Saturday, The New York Times quoted Murdoch son-in-law Matthew Freud as saying, “I am by no means alone within the family or the company in being ashamed and sickened by Roger Ailes’s horrendous and sustained disregard of the journalistic standards that News Corporation, its founder and every other global media business aspires to.”
As Newser columnist Michael Wolff points out, the kingmaker at News Corporation isn’t named Roger.
Wolff gives Ailes about a year.
