Ailes Jumps Out Of Fox News Airplane With $40M Parachute -- Maybe?
July 19, 2016

Friday will be Roger Ailes' final day, according to Drudge Report, the Daily Beast, and other media outlets, but he's not jumping without a parachute, for sure.

In case you can't read the words on the contract below, Ailes will officially terminate on Friday, July 22nd. He will get a $40 million buyout of his contract, health insurance for himself and his dependents for life, and personal security services for the next six months.
