Fox News is dropping its "Fair & Balanced" slogan

Fox News is dropping its

NY magazine reporter and former Roger Ailes nemesis Gabriel Sherman reported on the change on Wednesday but notes the decision was actually made a year ago, not long after Ailes was forced out of his role as CEO and chairman of the network over mounting sexual harassment allegations.

The slogan has been a part of the network since its creation by Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch in 1996.

Ailes, 77, died on May 18 at his home in Palm Beach after he was hospitalized for several days due to injuries sustained from a fall. He resigned from Fox in July 2016, following allegations of sexual harassment that brought a sudden end to his 20 year reign.

Chelsea first opponents for Spurs at new 'home' Wembley
Arsenal and Tottenham will meet in the north London derby at the Emirates Stadium a few weeks earlier on 18th November. Brighton, meanwhile, are back in English football's top division for the first time since the 1982-83 season.

The slogan has been synonymous with the conservative news channel since its inception, even as critics have used the phrase ironically thanks to personalities (like Sean Hannity) and shows (like Fox & Friends) that hardly follow that rule.

Sources at the network said there had been no official announcement regarding the change.

In other words, it isn't that Fox News changed its mind about "Fair & Balanced".

US oil production seen thwarting OPEC effort to boost prices
USA crude futures, meanwhile, were down 3.4 percent to $44.92 a barrel, the lowest intraday level since May 5. With supplies plentiful, strong demand is needed to support the market, but there are signs of a slowdown.

A spokesperson for Fox News confirmed the announcement, according to New York Magazine.

The slogan was recognised across America.

It was also closely associated with Ailes, who used it as a code word for "leaning slightly left" in notes to producers and in making hiring decisions. Claudia Tenney's (R) office was sent an email with the subject line "one down, 216 to go", apparently a reference to the 217 representatives who voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Spectrum News reports.

Rallies against Islamic law draw counter-protests across US
In a somewhat confusing video advertising the Austin protest, Morris said she had been visited by Iranian students as a child. All of which thrilled the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which helped organize numerous national counterprotests.

Fox News has never been fair and balanced.
