New York Magazine:
According to four high-placed Fox sources, Murdoch is upping his presence at Fox while Ailes has become less visible to anchors and producers, signaling a shift that marks a new chapter in the network’s history. The most visible change is that, since June, Murdoch has been attending Ailes’s daily executive meeting held on the second floor of Fox headquarters. The secretive afternoon gathering in Ailes’s conference room is attended by about a half-dozen of the network’s most senior lieutenants. It’s where some of the most sensitive decisions about running the channel are discussed.
Meanwhile, Fox hosts and producers tell me Ailes has been a somewhat diminished force at the network. In 2014, he took an extended leave of absence after a health scare. He still has trouble walking and rarely ventures out of his executive suite. A friend who ran into Ailes in Palm Beach over the holidays remarked that he was using a walker. “He seems detached and removed,” one Fox personality tells me. “He’s not around as much,” says another friend of Ailes. “He doesn’t have as many meetings with talent.”
What this means politically is that during this year’s fractious Republican primary, Fox isn’t functioning like the disciplined campaign it’s historically been. “There's no directive on anything,” one anchor told me. “There used to be directives on everything, and now there's not, which is kind of nice.” By far, the clearest sign of this leadership vacuum is the network’s erratic handling of Trump in the wake of his feud with Megyn Kelly. “There is no Trump strategy,” the source explained.
Well isn't that interesting?
The article goes on to say that Murdoch is no fan of Trump or Cruz and has been pushing the cable channel to be more hostile towards them while attempting talk up the more establishment candidates like Marco Rubio.
Personally I think that the best thing that could happen to Fox News right now would be for Hillary to win the election.
Let's face it NOTHING brings the conservatives together quite like bashing a Clinton.
Update: Oops I forgot to mention that the best thing that could happen to the country is for Fox News to go out of existence altogether. Which, considering how quickly their audience is dying out, might not be completely out of the question.
