New York magazine reports the GOP presidential front-runner wasn't taking calls from Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes after the real estate billionaire's announcement Tuesday night.
The feud has the network in turmoil, the magazine adds — and that includes Ailes' future.
According to New York magazine, Ailes' stewardship at Fox News generates $1 billion in profit.
"But in recent months Murdoch has been attending news meetings at Fox in the wake of a health scare that forced Ailes to take an extended leave of absence," the magazine reports.
"Succession planning at Fox is very much on Murdoch's agenda. If Ailes loses his grip on the Trump situation — and right now it looks like he is — Murdoch will have another reason to worry about the stability of his most valuable asset."
The magazine reports one unnamed anchor was furious that Kelly hosted Michael Moore on her program Tuesday night — and that the lefty filmmaker defended her against Trump.
"That would be like Rachel Maddow laughing along with Charles Koch as he trashed Hillary Clinton!" New York magazine quotes the anchor saying.
