This comes as ZERO suprise given the $4MILLION 10 years ago to pay off OREILLY'S sexual harassment suit.  (OReillly liked to talk dirty to his own producer--including late night and early morning phone calls with sexual specficity).  The lawsuit was paid and she kept her mouth shut.  That probably, nor below, will be the first or last time...

Report: Ex-Fox News exec Brian Lewis paid $8 million to keep quiet
 
 Print
   By DYLAN BYERS | 12/9/13 4:07 PM EST Last week, Brian Lewis and Fox News reached a settlement: For a "a sizable sum," the former Fox News executive would stay quiet about everything related to the conservative news organization and its operations, including founder Roger Ailes.

The sizable sum? $8 million, according to Gawker's J.K. Trotter, who cites "a Fox News executive with knowledge of the negotiations."

It's only fitting that Gawker landed the figure: Nick Denton's news and gossip site has been a thorn in Roger Ailes' side since it's inception, the infamous Fox mole being only the latest player in that campaign.

Lewis, who served as Roger Ailes’ guardian for 17 years, threatened to leak private information about the company after he was abruptly fired in July for what Fox’s parent company attributed to “financial irregularities” and breaches of contract. In a statement, Lewis' layer said "Roger Ailes and Newscorp have a lot more to fear from Brian Lewis telling the truth about them than Brian Lewis has to fear from Roger Ailes and his toadies telling lies about Brian Lewis."

Moved because it was NOT ABOUT POLITICS???  Seriously??  I repeat.  We let 'trolls' on my other boards play without PUNITIVE 'editing', erasing, moving etc.  I figured we we're all grownups and have no busy in the kitchen if we can't take the heat.  I guess some of us are more 'delicate doilies' than I thought.

It's not political Dumb ass, get that through your head!
He could have moved it to the Pit and only members would be able to see it, which is where I'd have put it, because it's a non story.

Then get your head out of the SANDbox (and from your ass) and pay attention.  I'm just sorry this guy rolled for the money!  I'd suuuure like to hear the stories from the inside.  I'm suuuuuuure they involve the who's who the REPUBLICAN PARTY.  The money is probably unimaginable.  WE ALREADY KNOW THE FEAR among rank and file employees is demoralizing and often terrorizing.  (Read that for yourself)...

I always go back to my having a cigarette about 9 years ago with CARL CAMERON in the front of a hotel in Orlando.  (Smokers still bonded back then).  We were discussing FOX News and OREILLY.  Carl was giving me the pitch to give FOX another try as frankly I told him what I really thought.  I told him OKAY, but fat chance in hell I'd tune into OREILLY.  He offered up a look of utter disgust.  And I quote, "you think he is an ASSHOLE on TV".

Any chance you can articulate your point, or is that wishful thinking on my part?

  • Alex, I'll try "THINGS ONLY I KNOW" for $200.
If you click all the way through the links, this whole thing originated in a story at Gawker, which quotes an unnamed "Fox executive" as the one and only source for the $8 million figure. Gawker stuck it in the midst of other stories that demonstrate just how serious a news outlet Gawker really is, with headlines like, "Pranksters Convince Alcoholic Friend He's Been in a Coma for 10 Years," and "Teen Claims Krokodil Ate Her Genitals," and "Childless Adults Should Not Have Christmas." POLITICO seems to be the only other publication willing to stick the number out there. HuffPo and NYT reported the story in a small way, but even they wouldn't touch the settlement figure.

Whether it's political or not, the story is shit.
