Fox Fires Top Executive Over “Business Misconduct”

The Washington Post reports:

Fox News has fired veteran executive John Finley after determining that he violated the company’s conduct standards.

Finley, who helped develop many of the network’s biggest shows and had once been Sean Hannity’s executive producer, was put on leave from his role as executive vice president of development in recent weeks while an investigation was conducted by an outside law firm. He was fired by the network Friday based on the firm’s findings.
