Murdoch Promotes Roger Ailes Loyalists to Run Fox News — Roger Ailes may be out of Fox News, but he continues to cast a long shadow over the network. Today, 21st Century Fox executive chairman Rupert Murdoch promoted three Ailes loyalists to serve as the new leadership team atop the network.

Andrea Tantaros Made Harassment Claims Against Roger Ailes — Fox News' senior executives have said they were unaware of sexual-harassment allegations against Roger Ailes before former anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit against him in July. But those claims are now being challenged by Fox host Andrea Tantaros, who says that she complained multiple times to senior Fox executives in 2015 about Ailes's inappropriate sexual behavior toward her.

Ailes Used Fox Budget to Finance Campaigns Against Enemies — As Rupert Murdoch seeks to stabilize Fox News in the wake of Roger Ailes's ouster, a crucial question remains unanswered: How was Ailes able to spend millions of dollars to settle sexual harassment claims without it setting off alarmbells?

Ex-Fox News Employee Says Roger Ailes Sexually Exploited Her for 20 Years — Sherman writes: Laurie Luhn told the lawyers at Paul, Weiss that she had been harassed by Ailes for more than 20 years, that executives at Fox News had known about it and helped cover it up, and that it had ruined her life. 'It was psychological torture,' she later told me.

Fmr. Fox Booker: Harassed by Ailes for 20 Years — The morning after Fox News chief Roger Ailes resigned, the cable network's former director of booking placed a call to the New York law firm hired by 21st Century Fox to investigate sexual-harassment allegations against Ailes.

Roger Ailes Is Writing an Autobiography -- NYMag — Several GOP candidates have treated this primary season as a book tour just as much as a presidential campaign. Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, and Sarah Palin have all hustled around the country selling books, in addition to regular appearances on Fox News to tout their tomes.

How Fox News Fired and Silenced a Female Reporter Who Alleged Sexual Harassment

Roger Ailes Is in an Upstate Newspaper War -- NYMag — Roger Ailes, in his day job, rules the Fox News media empire that has been the dominant force in cable news ever since he took on CNN's entrenched monopoly in the mid-nineties. But now Roger Ailes, community newspaper baron, is about to find out what it's like to be the Establishment player facing competition from an upstart insurgent.

The Silencing of Fox’s Publicist Irena Briganti -- NYMag — As Roger Ailes battles the Murdochs over the terms of his exit from Fox News, he's doing so without a key weapon in his arsenal: Fox spokesperson Irena Briganti. Briganti - who is feared both inside and outside Fox as Ailes's public-relations enforcer - has been told by 21st Century Fox executives that she is not allowed to communicate with Ailes or the press about his status at the network.

Megyn Kelly Rallied Colleague Against Ailes -- NYMag — When Gretchen Carlson filed her sexual harassment lawsuit against Roger Ailes on July 6, the explosive allegations surely did not surprise Megyn Kelly. Fox News' biggest star has since told lawyers hired by parent company 21st Century Fox to investigate Ailes that she experienced similar unwanted sexual advances from the Fox News chairman in the mid-2000s when she was a young correspondent in the Washington bureau.
