Why the GOP Primary Is Doomed by the Free Market

nymag.com — On Tuesday, if all goes according to plan, Ohio governor John Kasich is scheduled to announce his presidential candidacy. In any normal year, someone with Kasich's resume - ex-investment banker, former Congressman and moderate two-term governor of the swing state that has decided every presidential election since 1964 -- would surely have no trouble breaking through.

Ailes Demotion Means Power Shift in Fox Empire -- NYMag

nymag.com — For much of the past 15 years, Roger Ailes has operated with virtual impunity inside Rupert Murdoch's media empire. Nothing, it seemed, could induce Murdoch to rebuke Ailes publicly, even if Ailes forced Murdoch to choose between him and his sons.

James Murdoch Isn’t Taking Over 21st Century Fox -- NYMag

nymag.com — This morning's news that Rupert Murdoch is tapping his younger son James to become CEO of 21st Century Fox has led many to speculate that the announcement resolves the company's decades-long succession drama. While James's promotion is a big deal - not least because it means he survived the London phone-hacking scandal - it is not a definitive coronation by any means.
