After reviewing the initial findings, James Murdoch, CEO of parent company 21st Century Fox, wants Ailesgiven the choice of resigning this week or face being fired, New York Magazine reported. His brother, Lachlan, co-chairman of the parent company, would rather wait until after the Republican National Convention being held this week in Cleveland, according to the magazine.

The investigation was set off by former anchor Gretchen Carlson's lawsuit accusing Ailes of retaliating against her after she refused his advances.
