Critics argue Fox ousters aren't enough
With Bill Shine following Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly out the door at Fox News, critics say the chain of command at the network is still tainted:
- Some current and former women at Fox are "reacting viscerally" against the naming of Shine's deputy, Suzanne Scott, as his replacement, per NPR's David Folkenflik: "One ex Fox-er: Scott is 'a nightmare - just as bad as the rest.' A current Fox employee: 'Worse than Shine' in deflecting concerns of women."
- Critics lament Rupert Murdoch's tone on departures: Murdoch called O'Reilly "one of the most accomplished TV personalities in the history of cable news"; said Shine was "respected and liked by everyone"; and Ailes had executed his vision for the network "brilliantly over 20 great years."
- There are now calls for Dianne Brandi, Fox's top lawyer, to be the next to go, per Folkenflik and Buzzfeed's Mary Georgantopoulos.
