Fox News co-president, Bill Shine has resigned amidst continuing sexual harassment claims against top Fox News executives and on-air talent.

Shine, who as been at the top of Fox News for 20 years, follows Bill O'Reilly out of the door, who also has been dragged into the claims of sexual harassment at the network. Roger Ailes also fell on his sword last year, accused of the same offence.

Whilst Shine has not been directly accused of sexual harassment himself, he has been named in several lawsuits on allegations of harassment and racial discrimination, and also for his "turning a blind eye" to alleged sexual harassments at Fox News. Shine also stands accused of allegedly punishing those who had filed complaints against top executives and on air talent.

Fox News host Sean Hannity took to twitter in a tirade of unfriendly remarks towards his employers, possibly setting up an exit from the network himself.

21st Century Fox chairman, Rupert Murdoch said in a statement; "This is a significant day for all at Fox News.

"Bill has played a huge role in building Fox News to its present position as the nation’s biggest and most important cable channel in the history of the industry. His contribution to our channel and our country will resonate for many years."

One thing is for sure, the crisis currently enveloping Fox News shows no signs of slowing, and there is quite likely going to be more folks through the revolving door before the matter comes to a close.Kevin Coy, Editor
