The Shine is Gone From Fox News (UPDATED)

The Friendly Firing of Fox

Bill Shine has “resigned” as co-president at Fox News:

“This is a significant day for all at Fox News,” Rupert Murdoch, the executive chairman of 21st Century Fox, said in a statement announcing Shine’s resignation. “Bill has played a huge role in building Fox News to its present position as the nation’s biggest and most important cable channel in the history of the industry. His contribution to our channel and our country will resonate for many years.”

Shine, who had been with Fox since its inception in 1996, was a right-hand man to former Fox News chief Roger Ailes.

I hate to think of where the other hand was.

This doesn’t fix much of Fox’s culture of sexual harassment and abuse, but it is a minimum, first step for accountability.  I’ll state the obvious: at Fox sexism goes hand-in-hand with toxic right wing ideology, from opposing family planning to making women wear short skirts while sitting at glass desks, and it is going to take a lot more than just firing a creep at the top to fix their culture.

UPDATE 1: It ain’t gonna get better:

    Andrea Tantaros, as I understand it, was in charge of enforcing the dress code for the ladies: to make sure they were short enough. There was no mention that she enforced the rules for the color of their panties, but I’m sure that it was. It could’ve been, anyway.
