Roger Ailes is out at Fox News. To review:
- The 76-year-old Ailes is very credibly accused of having been a serial sexual harasser over the course of many years.
- He makes and enormous amount of money and maintains a high social status while controlling an influential news network.
- One of his victims finally decides to sue, greasing the skids for him,
- And, although he’s already made enough money to live in luxury the rest of his life, he walks away with tens of millions of dollars.
I wonder what made him think he could get away with it?
In related news, Margaret Talbot’s summary is very good.
