SPOILER ALERT

he's a vindictive, misogynistic prick.

I'm shocked to learn that he is a piece of shiat.
 
2014-01-14 03:52:14 PM  
Holy shiat, he's even more nuts than I'd ever imagined.

*Ailes thought Sarah Palin was "an idiot," but paid her a million dollars a year and built a home studio for her in Wasilla, Alaska. Before her appearances, she regularly carped at husband Todd, who handled the camera. Fox News producers nicknamed the Palins "The biatch" and "The Eskimo."

I love this so much.

They installed security cameras all over the property, built a bunker under their mansion, designed to weather a terrorist attack, and stocked it with a six-month food supply.

I hope to god they have a reason to use these, too. Like when the feds come looking for them.

*In his 20s, Ailes displayed a killer instinct for corporate politics, maneuvering to oust his boss and leapfrog over his betters to become executive producer of The Mike Douglas Show...

I would really like details on what exactly he did, but even without them, it doesn't take a full-length biography of the guy to recognize that his promotion was probably deserved and, at the very least, vindicated.

Ailes was so alarmed by the prospect of President Obama's reelection-which he feared would result in his being prosecuted and jailed as a political prisoner-he once confided to Bill Clinton that he was looking into acquiring an Irish passport so he could emigrate to Ireland.

Wow, he really drinks his own Kool-Aid, doesn't he?

He personally cancelled Firefly, but not before the second season was done filming. The footage is kept in his underground bunker, and the cast and crew are sworn to secrecy under pain of death.

So he's just as crazy and paranoid as the typical Fox viewer, then?

*Ailes's father, Robert, a low-paid factory supervisor at the General Motors Packard plant, was an angry, occasionally violent man who resented his lot in life and occasionally whipped Roger and his older brother Robert Jr. with his belt. Once, as a cruel lesson, he urged little Roger to jump into his arms from the top bunk of his bunk bed, but stepped back and let his son fall to the floor. "Don't ever trust anybody," Robert Sr. declared. Decades later, an Ailes colleague called the incident "his Rosebud story."

Are they just stealing these from Walker Texas Ranger?

Seriously, though, if you're Roger Ailes, why would you confide in Bill Clinton?

That'd be like the president having sex with an intern & expecting her to not tell anyone...

He sneaks into my dryer and steals a single sock.
 
2014-01-14 06:02:30 PM  
Much as I would like to hear the dirt on Ailes, I gave up on the article after coming upon too many grammatical mistakes. Proof reading, do you understand it?

He made it impossible for Jeff to get over it.
