Murdoch May Have The Cure For Ailes

Part of the fallout from the NBC-Microsoft partnership is the potential loss of CNBC president Roger Ailes. The plan for MSNBC calls for dumping the format of NBC’s fledgling America’s Talking cable network to make room for the all-news network, icing Ailes out of the network he’s controlled since its launch 18 months ago. The industry is rife with speculation that Ailes will make his exit as soon as he has a place to go.

He could find the opportunity to run another network in Rupert Murdoch’s empire. Ailes, who used to be the GOP’s premier pit-bull consultant, is a member of the same ideological brotherhood as Murdoch. He’s worked for the Fox chief before, including a stint as a consultant to “A Current Affair.” Ailes, who has gotten the lion’s share of the credit for turning around CNBC, has already created a buzz as the most logical choice to head up any Murdoch effort to enter the cable news wars.
