Murdochs: Give Roger Ailes a Swift Kick to Curb on Front Page of Company-Owned New York Post

Share

The Murdochs and News Corp are not subtle. When they want to ‘kill you’ they really go for it. And so they have on the front page of Wednesday’s New York Post, the tabloid they own. When Ailes was first sued by Gretchen Carlson, the Post avoided any mention of it. But once the Murdochs made up their minds to give Ailes the gate, all bets were off.

There’s no honor among thieves. Or lie down with dogs, get up with fleas. Ailes must be wondering what the last 20 years were all about. I’m not defending him. But isn’t this a little bit over the top coming from your own company?
