Quick and to the point, ’cause there’s not much else to say.

After a week of speculation and in the wake of a sexual harassment lawsuit and investigation, Roger Ailes is out as the CEO of Fox News.

Rupert Murdoch, the guy who owns the place anyway, is gonna take over.

No public mention of a much discussed multi-million dollar payment to go quietly.
