    The former Fox anchor who was dismissed by the now embattled head of Fox News is reportedly peddling a memoir dishing about her experience at the network. As if Roger Ailes doesn’t have trouble on his plate, former Fox News anchor Laurie Dhue has been shopping a tell-all about her experiences with the founder of the conservative-friendly cable network along with other Fox News personalities. Dhue’s proposed book-length memoir, which I’m told is already attracting interest from publishers, can’t be good news for the embattled Ailes—who faces the prospect of a pile-up of sexual harassment allegations, in the wake of...

    Less than a year ago, Megyn Kelly sat down for an interview with Charlie Rose, and called her Fox News boss Roger Ailes a 'mentor' and a 'friend'. But it appears that the network's rising star anchor has been working behind the scenes to ensure his exit from the company. A source who spoke with the New York Magazine says that Kelly convinced at least one other women to speak out against Ailes, after lawyers were brought in to investigate claims that the 76-year-old media executive sexually harassed employees.

    The Murdochs and News Corp are not subtle. When they want to ‘kill you’ they really go for it. And so they have on the front page of Wednesday’s New York Post, the tabloid they own. When Ailes was first sued by Gretchen Carlson, the Post avoided any mention of it. But once the Murdochs made up their minds to give Ailes the gate, all bets were off. Ailes must be wondering what the last 20 years were all about. Isn’t this a little bit over the top coming from your own company?

    It’s “unlikely” that any of the star anchors of Fox News will be exiting with Roger Ailes when he leaves tonight or tomorrow. “There’s too much money involved,” says a network news expert insider. “Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Greta van Susteren– even if they have key man clauses they’re not going anywhere to start a new network with Roger Ailes.” Ailes, my source says, has no non-compete clause so he can go anywhere. But remember– Ailes foundered at CNBC before Rupert Murdoch came along with deep pockets. And the Fox anchors are paid handsomely. “They’re not just going to leave...

Mr. Ailes and 21st Century Fox, Fox News’s parent company, are in the advanced stages of discussions that would lead to his departure as chairman, Susan Estrich, one of Mr. Ailes’s lawyers, said in an interview on Tuesday. The development follows a sexual harassment suit filed July 6 against Mr. Ailes by a former anchor, Gretchen Carlson.

Three of Fox News’ biggest stars — Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren — have clauses in their contracts that would allow them to depart if Mr Ailes were to leave the network, the two people briefed on the dispute said. This means a core team of on-air talent could follow Mr Ailes out of the door. Mr O’Reilly said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter last...

    A day after reporting that Fox News chief Roger Ailes could be on his way out soon, New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman reported Tuesday that Megyn Kelly, the most prominent star at Fox, has detailed alleged harassment by Ailes to the law firm commissioned by 21st Century Fox to probe accusations leveled by ex-anchor Gretchen Carlson. Unlike many of her colleagues, Kelly has been silent since Carlson filed a lawsuit against Ailes. According to Sherman’s sources, the alleged harassment against Kelly occurred when she was a young contributor to the network about 10 years ago. Sherman also reported that 21st...

The blockbuster report comes on the heels of Sherman's Monday story, citing sources at Fox News's parent company, indicating Roger Ailes was soon to be fired. The decision to remove Ailes in the coming weeks was the result of misconduct discovered after a legal review of his actions in the wake of claims made by former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson. Carlson has filed suit in New Jersey Superior Court claiming the Fox News chairman requested they sleep together...

When Fox News did not commence any negotiations to renew her contract, Ms. Carlson became aware that her career with the network was likely over and conveniently began to pursue a lawsuit.

Fox executives were willing to consider 9 million viewers a success, but Kelly’s supposedly mainstream appeal didn’t translate to the parent network, and she only netted 4.8 million viewers. It was, as one Fox insider told Sherman, “not good for her at all.” In fact, her boss Roger Ailes was apparently so tickled by the fact that he would not have to...

Baier even had a “nuclear option” at the ready for Trump if he ignored all protocol. The script — which Baier didn’t have to use — took a page from Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” TV show. It went like this: “Mr. Trump, in your business you have rules. You follow rules. We have rules on...

    Murdoch's message to blunt Trump's rise in the polls came loud and clear over his social media and publishing outlets Rupert Murdoch handed over 21st Century Fox, the conglomerate behind Fox News, to sons James and Lachlan July 1, 2015. James is now CEO and Lachlan executive co-chairman. Last year Murdoch elevated his sons to prominent positions, James to co-COO and Lachlan to non-executive co-chairman, but the turnover of the conglomerate came sooner than expected. For 15 years, Roger Ailes has enjoyed near total autonomy as head of Fox News, but Ailes’ sovereign rule ended abruptly with the move. A...

    Having spent the past six weeks rhetorically slashing at his Republican rivals, it makes perfect sense that Donald Trump would eventually run out of targets and find himself in a war with the party’s media arm: Fox News. At the GOP primary debate Thursday night in Cleveland, Trump’s onstage clashes with the Fox moderators, and his postdebate complaints about the network’s treatment of him, were among the most talked-about story lines to emerge from the Quicken Loans Arena. What makes the confrontation all the more dramatic was that Fox News chairman Roger Ailes has, until this point, been a...

    The mounting problem Donald Trump poses to Republicans is also a mounting problem for the country’s most powerful conservative media mogul: Rupert Murdoch. This morning’s New York Times gives front-page treatment to the billionaire grudge match that has become a major story line in this year’s (already) fractious GOP primary. The piece by political reporters Amy Chozick and Ashley Parker chronicles Murdoch’s intensifying efforts over the past week to blunt Trump’s surge to the top of the crowded GOP field. In recent days, Murdoch has tweeted that Trump is “wrong” and “embarrassing.” On Sunday, the New York Post mocked...

    Get this: Conservatives give better graduation speeches than their more liberal-minded counterparts. After reviewing two commencement-speech anthologies - "The World is Waiting For You," which features 18 speeches by liberals, and "Remembering Who We Are," which showcases 30 conservative speeches - Washington Post blogger and book critic Carlos Lozada gives five reasons why conservatives do a better job. First, he writes, conservatives are more likely to speak to graduates as individuals, rather than as members of a movement or generation. Whereas liberal speakers say things such as, "you are the first generation that ...," conservative speakers are more likely to...

    Fox's news czar tells THR about his goal to launch a new network with Bill O'Reilly, the real reason Alec Baldwin was fired and why Jeff Zucker's strategy is no cause for concern: "I guess he's going to do whales a lot. If I were Discovery, I'd be worried."

    Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes is being interviewed by Neil Cavuto at this hour in California at a 21st Century Fox investors conference. The first question Cavuto asked was about the rumor, first reported on Drudge Report, that Megyn Kelly will me moving into the 9pmET timeslot this Fall. “Generally, I don’t confirm or deny any rumors, and that is a rumor at the moment,” said Ailes, adding “all of our stars will be back.” As for Hannity, who currently hosts the 9pm hour, Ailes said, “Hannity is a brand that many of our viewers love and want...

    Roger Ailes doesn’t think homosexuals are out to get him. He frequently jokes about his weight. He doesn’t believe Rupert Murdoch calls him “cuckoo,” but brags that his boss does call him “paranoid” - and he’s wealthier for it. If Fox News headquarters is under attack, Ailes plans to stay behind, with a monitor to watch others scurrying out of the building.

    Dear colleagues, The recent news about the FBI’s seizure of the phone and email records of Fox News employees, including James Rosen, calls into question whether the federal government is meeting its constitutional obligation to preserve and protect a free press in the United States. We reject the government's efforts to criminalize the pursuit of investigative journalism and falsely characterize a Fox News reporter to a Federal judge as a "co-conspirator" in a crime. I know how concerned you are because so many of you have asked me: why should the government make me afraid to use a work phone...
