Fox News Takes a Moment During Live RNC Coverage to Report on Ailes Resignation

baier kurtzIt didn’t take long for Fox News to cover the big news surrounding their network today: the resignation of Roger Ailes.

This is the second time this week that Fox News has had to take a moment during their RNC coverage to mention the internal drama going on at their network.

Fox’s Howard Kurtz talked about Ailes leaving the network, Rupert Murdoch stepping in, and made it clear that the internal inquiry into sexual harassment allegations against Ailes “led to today’s announcement.”

Kurtz said that Ailes has been, of course, “virtually synonymous with Fox since its founding,” and lots of Fox Newsers have already shared their reactions to the news.
