Roger Ailes the Head of Fox News Is Forced To Resign
For twenty years as the head of Fox News, Roger Ailes helped shaped the current form of the Republican Party.
And turn politics in that country into a sewer.
But today it was his turn to be flushed into that same sewer.
When he was forced to resign by Ruper Murdoch following allegations of sexual harassment
Roger Ailes, who built Fox News into a money-making ratings powerhouse, has resigned as chairman and CEO of the popular U.S. cable channel following allegations of sexual harassment, according to the company.
Rupert Murdoch, 85, the executive chairman of 21st Century Fox Inc, the parent of Fox News, will assume the role of chairman and acting CEO of Fox News and Fox Business Network.
It's a massive blow to the conservative movement in America, for his evil influence was enormous.
With Fox News, Mr. Ailes introduced a brash, point-of-view-based style that influences much of today’s media. But the closest comparison for him might be less CNN’s Ted Turner than someone like J. Edgar Hoover: a power behind the power, unelected but mighty, outliving administrations and the ebbs and flows of elections, ruling by force and fear.
And of course for Donald Trump the timing couldn't be worse, coming only a few hours before his acceptance speech at the Republican convention.
For not only is it another distraction like the Ted Cruz non-endorsement.
The final straw seems to have been this claim by Megyn Kelly.
On Tuesday, the magazine said that popular Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly had told investigators hired by Fox that Ailes "made unwanted sexual advances toward her" about 10 years ago.
Who happens to be the same woman Trump went after in the most disgusting manner.
After she questioned him about the way he has called women "‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’’ and ‘disgusting animals.”
And can only remind Americans of his ghastly record on women's issues.
On the same day his daughter Ivanka is scheduled to introduce his acceptance speech.
You can't buy that kind of bad publicity.
Bye bye Ailes.
Bye Bye Trump.
And hello Rupert Murdoch...
There are at least a thousand reasons the Republican Party should be destroyed.
But their filthy misogny is the best reason of all...
