>> Fox News chief Roger Ailes, arguably the most powerful man in the TV news business is on his way out, according to several media reports. His lawyers now trying to fend off allegations that he sexually harassed the network's biggest star Megyn Kelly. Kelly, according to details first reported by New York Magazine, told investigators that she was sexually harassed by Ailes about ten years ago.

Claims of sexual harassment have been swirling around Ailes for weeks, starting with a lawsuit by former top anchor Gretchen Carlson. Earlier Tuesday, 21st Century Fox tweeted, Roger is at work. The review is ongoing. The only agreement that is in place is his existing employment agreement. But Rupert Murdock, the co-executive chairman of parent company 21st Century Fox, and his two sons Lachlan and James have now reportedly had enough of the bad publicity.

An ousting of Ailes would come at an inopportune time for Fox News, the Republican National Convention is underway. A scandal at the top of the network could force the channel to focus inward rather than on the developing political story in Cleveland.
