Ailes Demotion Means Power Shift in Fox Empire -- NYMag — 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.

Will James Murdoch Ever Control Roger Ailes? -- NYMag — This week, when it was reported that 84-year-old Rupert Murdoch was naming his younger son, James Murdoch, CEO of 21st Century Fox, speculation began almost immediately about what the change in leadership would mean for Fox News - and especially for its chairman and CEO, Roger Ailes.

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

The New York Times-Facebook Deal Is Here — Tomorrow morning, in what marks a tectonic shift in the publishing industry, the New York Times is expected to officially begin a long-awaited partnership with Facebook to publish articles directly to the social media giant, a source with direct knowledge of the talks told me.

Why Sy Hersh’s Piece Wasn’t in The New Yorker -- NYMag — Yesterday, the London Review of Books published one of the most mind-bending pieces of national-security journalism in recent memory: Seymour Hersh's alternative history of the Osama bin Laden assassination.

The Clinton Foundation vs. a Charity Watchdog -- NYMag — Last Wednesday, Bill Clinton ratcheted up Clintonworld's counter assault on Clinton Cash, the book by conservative author Peter Schweizer that ignited the latest media frenzy over the former First Couple's $2 billion foundation. "There's just no evidence," Clinton defiantly told CNN's Christiane Amanpour, during an interview at the Foundation's confab in Morocco.

Spending Proves Taxing — A deathly silence reigned in most of the city's high-end stores this week-except for the occasional retail Republican. Brooks Brothers, that preppy bastion, was offering a weeklong 20 percent discount for Republicans who showed their delegate cards. On Sunday, however, the Fifth Avenue store was obscured behind scores of policemen, who stood out front scribbling on notepads as they received their "heightened-security" assignments.

(Actually) True War Stories at NBC News — Illustration by André Carrilho On a snowy evening in December, Brian Williams and his wife, Jane, met with a small group of NBC executives for a ­celebratory dinner in a private room at Del Posto, Mario Batali's restaurant in Chelsea.

Fox News Should Thank MoJo for O’Reilly Story -- NYMag — Last week, when Mother Jones published an article casting doubt on Bill O'Reilly's boasts of covering the Falklands War and other active conflict zones, the magazine positioned the scoop as an exposé with career-ending implications. "Bill O'Reilly Has His Own Brian Williams Problem," blared the headline.

David Carr Was the Times’ Biggest Cheerleader -- NYMag — Twenty-four hours before he died, David Carr was kicking back in a plush chair in the green room at CNN. He was wearing an undertaker's black suit and tie, which seemed an appropriate uniform: We were both waiting to go on air to talk about the death of Brian Williams's television career.
