“At least one top talent inside Fox News has confirmed to Breitbart News that a major talent meeting among various different hosts is scheduled, and they are considering leaving with Roger Ailes to form a new network to compete with Fox,” Breitbart News reports.

The story continues, “‘Everyone here hates Gretchen [Carlson]  and Megyn [Kelly],’ the talent said in a brief phone interview, adding that hosts from ‘Fox and Friends’ and throughout the primetime lineup from the co-hosts of ‘The Five’ to ‘Special Report’s’ Bret Baier to Greta Van Susteren to Bill O’Reilly, Shepard Smith and Sean Hannity are planning to band together and potentially execute contract clauses that allow them to leave if Ailes is driven out.”

The Breitbart report adds, “Ailes has come under fire amid unsubstantiated allegations from Gretchen Carlson, the former Fox anchor, and now Megyn Kelly of ‘The Kelly File’ that he allegedly sexually harassed them. The only host whom this talent hasn’t personally confirmed as part of a potential mass exodus was O’Reilly. But since Ailes bailed out O’Reilly when he came under fire for a loofah incident that even he would ‘consider’ leaving in a mass exodus.”

  1. I cannot see this happening because of the age issue = Demos. Bill O’Reilly is almost 70 years old and Greta, the Scientologist cannot be much younger. Roger Ailles is almost 80 years old and I cannot see talent leaving with him given the circumstances of his departure.

  2. If Ailes does leave and some of the talking heads go with him, is there a chance that Fox could become a news network, instead of the propaganda arm of the Tea Party?
