Fox News had a story at the height of the presidential election that detailed an alleged sexual relationship between porn actress Stephanie Clifford — whose stage name is “Stormy Daniels” — and Donald Trump, but opted not to publish it, four people familiar with the matter told CNN.
With Roger Ailes gone, the network’s chief de-facto programmer is the president. “He has the same embattled view as a typical Fox viewer.”
On the Friday before Christmas, Fox News confirmed that its chief Washington correspondent, James Rosen, had left the network after 18 years. The network cited no reason for Rosen’s exit and did not announce it on the air. According to Rosen’s former colleagues, however, he had an established pattern of flirting aggressively with many peers and had made sexual advances toward three female Fox News journalists, including two reporters and a producer.

Fox has devoted more than 12½ hours of airtime to the Harvey Weinstein story since Oct. 5, when The New York Times broke the story about his misconduct, according to the liberal media watchdog Media Matters for America. By contrast, Fox has spent 20 minutes, 46 seconds, on the accusations against Bill O’Reilly since the Times revealed many of them in April, the group said. A news organization’s instinct to downplay a story that reflects poorly on itself isn’t unusual. But in this case, some are attributing the disparity to politics.
Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes haven’t worked for 21st Century Fox in months. Indeed, Ailes, who built and led the company’s financial engine, Fox News, passed away earlier this year. But their shadows continue to hover over some of the corporation’s most critical business efforts.

Fox News is no longer available in the U.K. now that 21st Century Fox has decided to drop the feed of its U.S. news channel from the Sky satellite platform. Fox said in a statement the decision was made because the channel has very little viewership and is not a money-maker for Sky.
Eboni K. Williams, co-host of The Fox News Specialists, addressed President Trump on Monday in her “Eboni’s Docket” segment, which she writes herself, berating him for failing to specify white nationalist groups in his condemnation of the violence that occurred at Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. She told Variety in an interview on Wednesday that her personal website, which usually receives an average of 10-15 emails after each segment, was inundated with over 150 emails, only three of which were anything other than “seething, scathing” takedowns.
