Ailes’ Job Is Safe, News Corp. Says

murdoch1112.jpgReacting to Sunday’s New York Times profile, and subsequent opinion columns from Lloyd Grove and Michael Wolff this week, Roger Ailes and Fox News took to The Los Angeles Times today to set the record straight: Ailes is certainly not on the way out at the news net, no matter what a Murdoch relative may have told the NYT.

This week’s Times profile included a quote from Rupert Murdoch‘s son-in-law, British publicist Michael Freud, criticizing Ailes. But to the LA Times, News Corp. president Chase Carey was quick to show support the Fox News chief. “News Corp. is 100 percent behind Roger Ailes,” Carey said. “We hope and expect he will continue to lead Fox News well into the future.”

For his part, Ailes made light of the whole situation. After explaining that he’s never had a problem with any of Murdoch’s children and said he has spoken with Freud’s wife, Elisabeth Murdoch, and her brother James Murdoch, since the profile was published, Ailes said he probably won’t be speaking with Freud. “I’m obviously not going to be invited to his house..with him home anyway,” he said.
