Oh, the shame. I will personally, sexually harass blond beauties for a lot less.

Actually - Drudge took down the story about Roger being fired.

Apparently it's still being "negotiated."

Ailes is a fat old man - I bet he'll be dead within a couple years. Once he loses his job and doesn't have the pretty blondes to harass anymore, he will have nothing left to live for.

I don't know if these "golden parachutes" are mischaracterized or really as bad as they often sound. Even when a company goes bankrupt it seems some of these things are carried out.

How does that do anything but degrade arguments for meritocracy? If you're going to preach a meritocracy you shouldn't have different standards for the rich where they fail and float gently down on their golden parachute.

(I realize the profit aspect doesn't directly apply to Ailies, I'm just bitching in general about CEO rewards even when they were failures)
Nobody learned anything from the global financial crisis.

The failed Japanese CEO is at least more logical. He's ashamed, apologizes and maybe even commits hari cari.

Well, my offer still stands.

Anybody is free to negotiate a golden parachute for themselves, not just CEOs. They are between the CEO and the shareholders, if someone does not like the deal they are free to sell their shares in the firm.

Same with collective bargaining I suppose.

Pretty much. Unions have negotiated many a golden parachute.

Well that's the sales pitch when you join up anyway.
