There is a rumor surfacing today that Fox News Channel President Roger Ailes has been fired; however, News Corp., the parent company, denies these rumors. News Corp. CEO, Rupert Murdoch has been silent on the issue, but his son-in-law, Matthew Freud, has been anything but…

Putting the rumor aside, let’s look at what Freud, who claims to represent the controlling shareholders of News Corp., had to say:

FREUD: The family is “ashamed and sickened by Roger’s horrendous and sustained disregard of the journalistic standards that News Corporation, its founder and every other global media business aspires to.”

Regardless of whether or not Roger Ailes has been, or will be, fired, there is certainly a line drawn between Ailes and the Murdoch family.

  1. Fire him please! Get someone who’s actually fair and balanced.

  2. “..there is certainly a line drawn between the Ailes and the Murdoch family.”

    Freud speaks for the Murdoch family? Where does it say that?

  3. A quick Google search tells you all you need to know. Ailes has not been fired, any more so than he was fired in years past when similar rumors were started. And with Murdoch getting up there in years, his son-in-law doesn’t want to see News Corp go to Ailes and his allies, so he is doing what he thinks will help him win control of the company when Murdoch dies. If Freud does gain control, then you’ll see Ailes fired, probably the day that Murdoch dies.

  4. You left out this little nugget: Freud does PR work for CNN. He’s employed by an FNC competitor.

    I wish you were as fair and balanced as Fox News.

  5. I can’t wait till Fox News channel is closed, somebody should close it already, it goes against the US government
