Is Fox News Chief Roger Ailes About to Be Indicted?

Last week the Times revealed that insane Fox News boss Roger Ailes allegedly urged former News Corp. employee Judith Regan to lie to federal investigators in 2006 about her affair with Ailes' buddy Bernard Kerik, then trying to become secretary of Homeland Security. Is Ailes about to be indicted for this?

Financial blogger Barry Ritholtz says yes:

Here's what I learned recently: Someone I spoke with claimed that Ailes was scheduled to speak at their event in March, but canceled. It appears that Roger's people, ostensibly using a clause in his contract, said he "cannot appear for legal reasons."

I asked "What, precisely, does that mean?"

The response: "Roger Ailes will be indicted - probably this week, maybe even Monday."

OK! That's something like double-hearsay offered up as evidence, but it's more solidly-sourced than most Fox News reports. Time to start your "Is Roger Ailes about to be indicted" office betting pool.
