According to an article released by the New York Times, the reputation of the Fox News Channel is currently at stake. The issue that puts their reputation on ice involves the former chief spokesman and close adviser to Roger Ailes, Brian Lewis. Ailes is the chairman of Fox News.
Brian Lewis spent years at the Fox News Channel, as the executive vice president. While holding this position he helped Fox News with public relations and communications.
Lewis was fired last July and escorted out of the 21st Century Fox building in Manhattan. A News statement by Fox News accused him of being guilty of “issues relating to financial irregularities, as well as for multiple, material and significant breaches of his employment contract.”
This is a claim that was denied by Lewis and his lawyer, Judd Burstein, at the time. Shortly after his firing Burdstein made the statement “Roger Ailes and News Corp. have a lot more to fear from Brian Lewis telling the truth about them than Brian Lewis has to fear from Roger Ailes and his toadies telling lies about Brian Lewis.”
It seems Fox has taken care of this problem. According to an unnamed source, who works at the channel, Lewis agreed to a deal to accept payment with the condition that he remain quiet about details of the company. Apparently Fox News Channel has a lot to hide.
When it comes to Fox News Channel it is always hard to verify information. However, no one has denied the information that Lewis struck a deal with Fox. Individuals like Burstein, have been avoiding confirmation or denial of the deal. Ms. Brandi, the lawyer of Fox News Channel, has followed in Burstein’s steps and refuses to give any information.
It seems Burstein will not be following up with threats he made earlier. Fox News Channel are true experts at keeping their business in-house. It is still unknown why they would go to such great lengths to do so.
