Fox News co-president Bill Shine resigns

Fox News co-president Bill Shine resigns

"Even after the November 29, 2016 meeting during which Roginsky personally recounted the harassment and retaliation by Ailes, Shine and Scott took no action to investigate, " the lawsuit alleges.

So says The Daily Beast's Andrew Kirell, after Hannity himself last week tweeted if the rumors of Shine's imminent ouster were true, it would be the end of the news network.

"He also tweeted his support for Shine using the hashtag "#Istandwithbill", which he amended to "#Istandwithshine" after apparently remembering that more than one Fox News personality with that first name has been in trouble recently (former top host Bill O'Reilly left in April amid sexual harassment accusations). Hannity has also declared that he's hired a team of lawyers to fight back against any politically motivated smear campaigns against him by the social justice cohort.

Hannity is a close friend of Shine, who was a producer of the host's program before he climbed up the executive ranks. He also hinted that he may address Shine's departure on his show.

Technically, Fox News doesn't have a CEO following Ailes' dismissal.

The network's other co-president, Jack Abernethy, will stay in his role, Fox said on Monday.

Promoted to president of programmeming was executive vice president Suzanne Scott, who has been with Fox News since 1996. Scott, who joined Fox News in 1996 and had been executive vice president, is now the president of programming for Fox News Channel.

"Suzanne and Jay are recognized industry leaders".

Murdoch said: "This is a significant day for all at FOX News". But the longtime Ailes lieutenant was considered vulnerable because of claims that he looked the other way as charges of toxic workplace behavior piled up, with some believing that the network would never truly be able to move on without him and other Ailes loyalists.

"This is not really very sophisticated management", Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple said on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday.

Concerns about the culture inside the network could have bigger implications for its parent company.

But Murdoch is weighing a number of corporate factors, including his desire to acquire the British satellite and television company Sky, a long-coveted prize. Days before his expulsion from Fox News, O'Reilly watched a speech Rep. Maxine Waters gave from the House floor discussing patriotism in our nation's current political environment, and his response was to mock her hair, calling it a "James Brown wig".

The abrupt resignation of Bill Shine on Monday may not be the last one among the old guard of executives who were closely aligned with ousted Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.
