We hear there are many more shoes to drop at Fox News (both revelations and replacements), even after yesterday's departure of co-president Bill Shine, the longtime Roger Ailes consigliere. (Press release here, with all the changes.)News: We're told Fox is still looking for an outsider to run the network.A Fox source emails me (all fascinating):"Simple fact is [Murdoch sons] James and Lachlan have been looking to turn the page since last summer.
