Fox News’ founding chairman and CEO Roger Ailes just renewed his contract with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. for another five years. His salary was not released, but he currently makes $5 million a year before bonuses, and last year he pulled in a total of roughly $20 million. Presumably, Murdoch is hoping there just hasn’t yet been enough Ailes sorcery to make people watch the Fox Business Network. [TV Decoder/NYT]
