Horrible human being and serial harasser, Roger Ailes, was "fired" from FOX News today. He'll have to comfort himself with an extended consulting contract and a $60 million golden parachute.
Murdoch’s comment did not address the obvious — that Ailes is resigning in the midst of not just Carlson’s allegations but similar claims from many other women, reportedly including multi-million-dollar-earning Fox star Megyn Kelly — but instead noted Ailes’ “remarkable contribution to our company and our country.” Link
Let's make this really clear. Roger Ailes was a cancer on our country. Few people in American history have done as much damage to our political system, our political and civil discourse, and our ability to come together as a nation. Ailes is the asshole who unleashed Hannity and O'Reilly on us. Ailes was a terrible, terrible influence on a large segment of Americans and history will judge him as a monster.
