Fox News chairman Roger Ailes slams White House

In the media world, as in politics, having a high-profile target can be a very good thing.

The age of Obama has provided a ratings boost for Fox News as its loudest personalities have relished the opportunity to play offense. Critics, of course, view Fox as an unabashed cheerleader for the Republican Party, an evil media empire spewing propaganda and misinformation at a gullible audience.

But Roger Ailes says his network is just reflecting reality when it comes to the White House.

“The president has not been very successful,” the Fox News chairman says in a lengthy interview. “He just got kicked from Mumbai to South Korea, and he came home and attacked Republicans for it. He had to be told by the French and the Germans that his socialism was too far left for them to deal with.”

The 70-year-old Ailes, dressed in a lavender shirt and tie, goes on in this vein, saying the network isn’t singling out Obama for criticism but that its style “tends to be more direct” in challenging presidents. Then he offers this observation about Obama:

“He just has a different belief system than most Americans.”

    Hey Mr Ailes you should be Man of the Decade for telling the truth about this Socialist who appoints pedophiles as School Safety czars. Thanks for saving the country.

    Here’s a verse

    Doctors are retiring earlier but we’re getting 17000 new IRS
    This is how Obama creates health care jobs I guess
    For 234 years this country’s been God’s blessing.
    Now he’s following Cloward and Piven’s to bankrupt the country I’m guessing
    If Obamacare gives Grandma and Grandpa a scare
    Think how when their rationed and die earlier we’ll save on healthcare

    Hey guys if you fought at Iwo or the Chosen
    when they stop giving your wife her meds and her last breath comes over her face
    you’ll find comfort knowing Nancy’d gladly take her place.

    I never trust a guy who gets his paychecks from a foreign owned (Australian/Saudi) company like Fox.

    • ladylove

      better they should get their paychecks from someone say like George Soros.

        George Soros’ company is also overseas. so Talibangelical doesn’t listen to NPR or Media Matters.

      OH how stupid. And cheap. Just go and find out who owns media in the US.. among other things. You’re thinking with your talibangenitals again.

      But really why on Earth should we care who you trust? Why should anyone trust anyone ? You’re friggin’ wacko.
