A CNN host yesterday noted that Fox News “has apparently gone out of its way to avoid reporting on its parent company’s troubles.”
Shortly after the comment, the network showed a behind-the-scenes clip from Tuesday of a Fox program dedicated to media criticism, where the hosts asked each other during a commercial break whether they wanted to talk about it.
“I’m not going to touch it,” one replied.

Convicted on all seven counts: US sex cult leader Keith Raniere, attracted the rich and famous
A US jury on Wednesday convicted a "self-help" guru of racketeering, sex trafficking and other crimes for his leadership of a cult-like organization of sex slaves he branded like cattle.
Keith Raniere, 58, coerced a string of women into having sex with him as the charismatic leader of a life-coaching group he founded in New York state.
Nxivm -- pronounced Nexium -- had proved a huge draw since its 2003 launch, attracting a coterie of rich and famous devotees such as the "Smallville" actress Allison Mack, and spreading into cities across the United States.
Pompeo ups pressure on Russia over four MH17 accused
Moscow must ensure that those charged with murder over the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 face justice, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, after international investigators accused three Russians and a Ukrainian over the disaster.

US Federal Reserve chief Jerome Powell said trade friction and slowing growth worldwide have led many central bankers to feel the case for an interest rate cut has "strengthened" but most still want to see more data before making a move.
But one policymaker dissented in the vote, advocating for an immediate cut -- something President Donald Trump has been calling for loudly and which many economists say is necessary given the damage done by the escalating trade frictions.
