Ailes out at Fox News, Fox Business

Roger Ailes is out as chief executive at Fox News Channel and Fox Business, his career at the networks he built from scratch and ran with an iron hand for nearly 20 years over with stunning swiftness following allegations that he forced out a former anchor after she spurned his sexual advances.

Hours before the final night of the Republican National Convention. network parent 21st Century Fox announced Thursday that Ailes would resign immediately.

Rupert Murdoch. the executive chairman of 21st Century Fox, will assume the role of chairman and acting CEO of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network until a replacement is named.

Murdoch and 21st Century Fox did not address the widening scandal in the statement on the resignation but lauded Ailes for his contributions.

“It is always difficult to create a channel or a publication from the ground up and against seemingly entrenched monopolies,” Murdoch said in a statement. “(Ailes’) grasp of policy and his ability to make profoundly important issues accessible to a broader audience stand in stark contrast to the self-serving elitism that characterizes far too much of the media.”

Fox is heading into a general election campaign in its customary spot at the top of the ratings, but without the man who sets its editorial tone every day.

The blustery, 76-year-old media executive built a network that both transformed the news business and changed the political conversation. Fox News Channel provided a television home to conservatives who had felt left out of the media, and played a part in advancing a rough-and-tumble style of politics that left many concerned that it was impossible to get things done in government.

Ailes’ downfall began with the July 6 filing of a lawsuit by Gretchen Carlson. who charged that Ailes sabotaged her career because she refused his suggestions for sex and had complained about a pervasive atmosphere of sexual harassment at Fox.

Ailes has denied the charges, but 21st Century Fox hired a law firm to investigate.

Several Fox employees jumped to Ailes’ defense, but notably not Megyn Kelly. one of Fox’s top personalities. In rapid succession, it was reported Kelly was among other women who had told investigators about harassment again denied by Ailes and that corporate heads Rupert Murdoch and his sons, James and Lachlan, determined that Ailes had to go.

Within two weeks of the court filing, Carlson’s lawyers also said more than 20 women had contacted the firm with stories of alleged harassment by Ailes either against themselves or someone they knew. Two of them came forward publicly.

Before the charges, Fox’s sheer success had insulated Ailes despite some previous scrapes with the Murdoch sons. Fox News Channel is the parent company’s single most important property, said Pivotal Research Group analyst Brian Wieser. with some estimates that it accounted for nearly a quarter of the company’s profits.

Ailes was a prominent Republican media consultant who later ran CNBC before Murdoch asked him to create a cable news network to compete with CNN at the same time MSNBC was starting. Ailes’ slogans, “fair and balanced” and “we report, you decide,” appealed to an audience that believed mainstream outlets didn’t live up to those promises.

“He was ahead of his time in recognizing that dividing, not uniting, an audience would be the key to commercial success in the 21st Century cable news business,” said Matt Sienkiewicz. communications professor at Boston College. Ailes blew apart the notion that public affairs programming should target a broad audience with civil debates, he said.

Ailes hired a combative broadcast journeyman in Bill O’Reilly and turned him into the star of an opinionated prime-time lineup. He directed news coverage and emphasized issues like the so-called “war on Christmas” or the Benghazi investigation that otherwise got little attention. Republican politicians considered Fox the first stop for reaching their intended audience, and they learned to talk tough. “We’re not going to be defensive about anything,” Ailes said at the network’s launch.

Definition of ‘Stock Market’

Definition: It is a place where shares of pubic listed companies are traded. The primary market is where companies float shares to the general public in an initial public offering (IPO) to raise capital.

Description: Once new securities have been sold in the primary market, they are traded in the secondary market—where one investor buys shares from another investor at the prevailing market price or at whatever price both the buyer and seller agree upon. The secondary market or the stock exchanges are regulated by the regulatory authority. In India, the secondary and primary markets are governed by the Security and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).

A stock exchange facilitates stock brokers to trade company stocks and other securities. A stock may be bought or sold only if it is listed on an exchange. Thus, it is the meeting place of the stock buyers and sellers. India’s premier stock exchanges are the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange.

How to Truly Say “I Love You” to Your Family

February 09, 2017 at 5:00 AM

Chocolate and roses are classic Valentine’s Day gifts. But I am dead serious when I tell you that the most caring and loving gift you can ever give your loved ones is to protect them with life insurance.

I know, I know. Not exactly romantic. But in terms of material things that we can buy for others, you can’t tell me there is anything that will bestow more protection and peace of mind. Yet a recent survey finds that many parents with children don’t have life insurance. And a significant portion of families that do have insurance, have $100,000 or less of coverage, which I can tell you is way too little.

So are you ready to show your family the love? Here’s how:

  • Think about whether anyone is dependent on your income. Kids. Siblings. Elderly parents. If anyone relies on your for all or some of their support, the next question I have for you is whether your savings and investments could support them if you were to pass tomorrow. If the answer is “no” then you need to say yes to life insurance pronto.
  • Aim for a death benefit that is at least 20 times your loved one’s income needs. Let me be clear, if you are relying on life insurance through work, you do not have anywhere near enough protection. Most employers provide just one year’s income. It sounds like a lot, but it’s not really enough to take care of your loved ones. One year’s salary isn’t going to help pay the mortgage for very long, or help send a five year old to college.

To make sure your loved ones will be okay, I recommend you buy life insurance with a death benefit that is 20 to 25 times the annual income you want to replace. So for example, if you wanted to replace $50,000 in annual income you would buy a policy with a $1 million to $1.25 million death benefit. Why so much? Because your beneficiaries could invest the money conservatively-in municipal bonds for example-and live off of the income for a very long time.

Now I know that sounds expensive, but trust, me I bet you can afford it. Just keep reading.

Buy a term life insurance policy. Most of us only need a life insurance policy for a set period of time. Until the toddlers are adults and supporting themselves. Or until we have time to build up our own assets. Or maybe to insure your elderly parents would be okay if something were to happen to you. In that case, term insurance is the right fit for your needs. Term means that it is good for a set term. That can be one year, or 10 years or 20 years. If you die during the term, your beneficiaries receive the death benefit. After the term, your insurance expires. Because the insurance is not permanent, the cost can very affordable. For example, a 45 year old woman in good health could buy a $1 million level term policy (level means the annual premium never changes) for an annual premium of less than $1,000. That’s less than $85 a month for incredible peace of mind! You can shop online for a term policy at Selectquote.com and Accuqoute.com

The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies

Welcome to The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For. This is the 16th annual survey and ranking of the cream of Britain’s employers, and its appearance each year is a high-profile event in the nation’s business calendar.

The data-gathering and analysis used across all sectors are extensive. It’s the staff themselves who fill in the anonymous surveys from which the scores are compiled — a total of 241,361 people filled out questionnaires for this year’s lists — so we’re getting opinions about their bosses, their working conditions and their employer’s values direct from the people whose hard work builds the success of their business, whether they’re lawyers, mechanics or shop assistants.

And once a company is on the list, they have to work to stay there. In all 925, firms registered to take part in this year’s surveys and there are 79 new entries, displacing those who didn’t make the grade this time.

Our lists honour:

■ The 100 Best Companies to Work For in the mid-size category, (250-3,000 employees).

■ The 25 Best Big Companies to Work For (3,000-plus).

■ SMEs (50-250 staff) are assessed in The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For.

■ Public-sector bodies, charities and housing associations are recognised in 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For.

All these lists can be found any time online at thesundaytimes.co.uk/best100companies

Congratulations to all the organisations on this year’s lists.
