MILO story below:
( Breitbart ) Former Breitbart Senior Editor MILO has announced the founding of his new $12 million dollar media company, MILO, Inc.
In a Facebook post, MILO outlined his new business plan and the $12 million investment funding that it has received from undisclosed investors. He has reportedly hired a seasoned media executive to lead the new 30-person team that will be based out of Miami, Florida. The new company will manage MILO‘s books, tours, merchandise and radio and TV opportunities.
In a statement, MILO said, “This isn’t some vanity nameplate on a personal blog. This is a fully tooled-up talent factory and management company dedicated to the destruction of political correctness and the progressive left. I will spend every waking moment of the rest of my life making the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists and other professional victims a living hell. Free speech is back — and it is fabulous.”
The statement also outlined MILO’s plans for free speech week at Berkeley, “MILO will release more details about Free Speech Week, his book, DANGEROUS, his new tour and the media company at a live-streamed “Cinco de Milo” party in Florida on May 5, with occasional updates between now and then on how fans and enemies can see, hear, and read his work.”

ROGER AILES story:
( Daily Mail ) Separately, a source told Mediaite that ‘high-powered television executives’ are plotting a new conservative news network because Fox is allegedly becoming too left of center.
‘I’m working on it hot and heavy,’ the source said. ‘It’s live, it’s real.’
The channel could be ready for airwaves in 10 months, the source said.
This news comes as New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman asserts that two sources close to Ailes, 76, say he would like to get back into TV.
And considering the recent firing of Bill O’Reilly, 67, from Fox News and Tomi Lahren, 24, from The Blaze, coupled with suggestions from Mediaite that Sean Hannity will not have ‘a long relationship’ with Fox, there are multiple potential new anchors galore for a new channel.
The change in direction at Fox News is primarily attributed to Rupert Murdoch’s sons James, 44, and Lachlan, 45.
James serves as CEO of Fox News parent company 20th Century Fox while Lachlan serves as co-chairman.
The Rupert Murdoch sons, James and Lachlan, who allegedly are taking Fox News to the left.
From New York Times :
In House of Murdoch,
Sons Set About an
Since taking over two years ago, James and Lachlan
Murdoch seem determined to rid the company of the
old-guard culture on which their father built his empire.
….James and Lachlan introduced additional benefits, including more paid vacation, vastly enhanced reproductive coverage for women and “expanded coverage for our transgender colleagues.”
…When they first took over, they stepped gingerly around Fox News. James and his progressive-minded wife, Kathryn, have long been embarrassed by certain elements of Fox News, associates said, while Lachlan’s views of the network have been more in line with his father’s. Both sons were willing to tolerate the freewheeling Fox News culture because of the enormous profit the channel generates.
….James and Kathryn Murdoch — whose Twitter feed shows disdain for President Trump — are also building what has been called a survivalist compound in rural Canada that has its own water and energy supply.
…The brothers are radically different in style. James is a speed-talking, tightly wound technophile — cool and calculating, to the degree that he can come across as slick, several associates said. Fashion forward, James socializes with young technology kingpins like Elon Musk, a founder of Tesla Motors and SpaceX.
( Daily Mail ) Fox News and Bill O’Reilly are reportedly in exit negotiations with a final decision on the popular host’s future with the network expected by the end of the week.
A well-placed source tells CNN Money that reps for the host and the cable news leader are currently in discussions ahead of a 21st Century Fox board meeting later this week on Thursday.
O’Reilly is expected to be the primary topic of discussion among the board members of the network’s parent company at that meeting.
Earlier on Tuesday, three sources told New York reporter Gabriel Sherman that Rupert Murdoch may not have O’Reilly return to the network after he comes back from his vacation in a week
