I wish, and I hope you're right, but Faux Noise Cable Propaganda offers an incredible amount of leeway for right-wing male "journalists" , pundits, and their bosses.

When security escorts him out of the building, THEN I will believe.

It is much like Clarence Thomas - every woman who ever worked with him/them knew the truth but those is power looked the other way and enabled him/them.

I have no reason to think that has changed.

rules don't apply. O'Reilly or Rush weren't done. As long as he makes Murdoch money and spews the propaganda he wants, he'll stay.

Republicans do not follow any kind of honorable moral code known by decent people. They are famous for dodging responsibility, and for trying to project their crap onto other people. He'll squirm out of this, and smirk at all the people he caused suffering with his Republican piggery.

Ailes will probably wind up canonized by the Republican Party, and his statue will be erected next to David Vitter, Larry Craig and all the other Hastert-style Republicans who embody their degenerate Republican Family Values.

He's not a public figure, so he doesn't need to do much. He'll pay the hush money and then continue being a dirty old man / perv boss.

He's a gross, slimy old guy. He fits in perfectly at Fox.

I understand his lawyers are trying to remove the case to federal court and put into arbitration. The outcome of these motions will be a good indication of how much trouble Ailes is in. If he gets a sympathetic ruling and he's able to tie the case up into all kinds of procedural knots, he'll probably be able to retire with the case unresolved.
