Ailes Out

Gabriel Sherman reported yesterday that the Murdochs have decided to axe Roger Ailes, and he's just reported that the deal-breaker was Megyn Kelly's admission that Ailes harassed her. Brian Stelter says non-disparagement clauses have likely kept other Fox News staffers quiet, and Sherman's report today says Fox is now waving NDAs for the investigation. Brook Barnes and Emily Steel wonder what could come next for Fox News, and Brian Steinberg wonders who could replace Ailes.

Update: Sources report Ailes is out now and is getting a $40 million buyout, but Brian Stelter is seeing conflicting reports.
