Can it be true? Can the vile body-snatcher who orchestrated the replacement of so many nice nanas and agreeable grampies with angry, sputtering, screechy FoxBots have been shoved out of the Murdoch dirigible with a hefty cash cushion? Maybe! From the Beastly Beast:
Several outlets reported Tuesday that beleagured chairman and CEO Roger Ailes will depart the cable news network following sexual harassment claims by former anchor Gretchen Carlson. According to a document obtained by the Drudge Report, Ailes will receive at least a $40 million buyout from the network. The news comes hours after New York Magazine reporter Gabe Sherman wrote that Fox News star Megyn Kelly told investigators hired by 21st Century Fox that Ailes had sexually harassed her ten years ago.
Fox initially confirmed Drudge’s report to The Daily Beast, and subsequently walked back that confirmation. Additionally, Drudge replaced a headline touting the buyout with a new one on “Fox News Drama,” including a statement from the network: “Roger Ailes has never sexually harassed Megyn Kelly. In fact, he has spent much of the last decade promoting and helping her to achieve the stardom she earned, for which she has repeatedly and publicly thanked him.”
Yeah, women who’ve been sexually harassed never have to make nice with the powerful fucks who demean and humiliate them. Anita Hill can tell you all about that.
Anyhoo, true or not, this is a wonderful time to be alive, comrades, what with the Trump convention imploding like a barrel of rancid haggis and now the possibility of the obliteration of the Fox Death Star. Yub-yub, motherfuckers!
