Rumors Swirl Around Roger Ailes And Future At Fox News

Fox News confirmed Ailes' exit to the Daily Beast, but then walked it back. Sources tell NY that Kelly has described Ailes' actions "in detail", but her remarks have not been made public.

When Gretchen Carlson filed her sexual harassment lawsuit against Roger Ailes on July 6, the explosive allegations surely did not surprise Megyn Kelly.

Update 5:13 p.m.: 21st Century Fox, Fox News' parent company, has disputed the reports that Roger Ailes has been fired.

Several of his longtime employees, speaking on condition of anonymity, said they expected Ailes would depart within days - a stunning and ignoble end to a twenty year career creating and leading the Fox News Channel.

Kelly is the No. 2-rated host on Fox News and is now in contract negotiations with the network.

Carlson, a mainstay of the network for 11 years, left Fox News on June 23 and shortly afterward filed a lawsuit against her former boss.

Carlson claims she was sacked from FNC last month as a result of her refusal to comply with Ailes' sexual demands.

Queen: Trump wasn't authorized to use 'We Are the Champions'
Delegates from each of the United States cast their votes at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night in Cleveland . Mike Pence has been nominated as the Republican vice presidential candidate - and Donald Trump's running mate.

Estrich said that neither she nor Ailes likely saw the document that Drudge posted. Ailes has denied the charges, saying she was let go because of performance issues.

Ailes' legal team has yet to respond to the offer, and Ailes has taken to the airwaves and the press to attack Kelly.

The company would only say Mr Ailes was at work and a review was ongoing.

Add it all up, and Ailes is still gainfully employed by Fox News - at least for now.

Further allegations have since surfaced in U.S. media that Mr Ailes sexually harassed another Fox News presenter, Megyn Kelly. Rupert Murdoch thinks Ailes, whose broadcasting fame has increased along with his role in Republican politics, should not be removed until after this week's GOP convention, according to the report.

In the weeks since Carlson leveled allegations against Ailes, media reporters have tried to imagine the network's future without its founding CEO. He has been a confidantof 21st Century Fox Executive Co-Chairman Rupert Murdoch, whonamed him founding chief executive of Fox News Channel in 1996.Under Ailes' leadership, Fox News has become the top-rated U.S.cable news channel.

"Roger Ailes has never sexually harassed Megyn Kelly", lawyer Susan Estrich said in a statement released late Tuesday. "The most important thing for Roger is that Fox News continues to be the number-one cable network". If she's turned against Ailes, it's all over for him.
