So, What’s All This About Roger Ailes Leaving Fox?

Today’s announcement that Roger Ailes has signed a new deal with News Corp. rips to shreds this Huffington Post post. Back in June, Charles Warner wrote:

I had lunch last week with a good friend who is wired into the media business, and the first thing he asked me when we sat down was, “Have you heard that Roger Ailes is out at FOX?” “No, I haven’t heard a thing,’ I said, ‘but it makes sense.’ Murdoch is no dummy and he sees the shift in the country’s tastes and mood.’”

With friends like that…

Anyway, we asked Fox News for a response to Warner’s reporting gossip. A spokesperson tells TVNewser, “Perhaps it’s time for Charlie to leave the stage and ride off into the sunset before he embarrasses himself any further.”
