Fox Co-Chairman Rupert Murdoch and his sons Lachlan and James agree that Ailes should depart, though they haven’t reached a consensus on the timing and nature of his exit, the magazine reported, citing people it didn’t identify. Lachlan is more aligned with their father, who thinks that no action should be taken until after the GOP convention this week, according to New York Magazine.

Breaking 911 reports that Ailes’ firing would be a stunning fall for one of the most successful media consultants and TV executives of the last half-century. The former adviser to Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan teamed with Fox co-chairman Rupert Murdoch to found Fox News in 1996, and built it into one of the most profitable properties in all of media.

Fox ranks as one of the highest-rated cable networks every month, and is a huge source of profits for 21st Century Fox. The company’s cable networks, led by the news channel, accounted for about half of 21st Century Fox’s revenue last year and more than two-thirds of operating income.

Ailes was sued for alleged sexual harassment by Carlson, who claimed she was fired in June for refusing his sexual advances and complaining about his conduct. The allegations prompted 21st Century Fox to begin an internal review. Her accusations were followed by claims from several other women, all of which allegedly occurred before the Fox News Channel began airing.

So it turns out that Ailes’ days are numbered.
