If the end is truly near for Roger Ailes at Fox News, it will be a stunning career close for the man who's led the news channel since its inception. Many media outlets yesterday reported that talks are in the works
about just how Ailes will leave. It may happen within days, and he won't leave empty handed: he could get a $40 million payout. Not a bad way to walk into the sunset. Allegations of sexual harassment haved dogged Ailes, including in a recent lawsuit from ex-Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson. Megyn Kelly, one of the network's biggest stars, has also reportedly accused Ailes of harassment.
