I wouldn't be surprised if there was a subversive undercurrent at the network to fuck with the higher-ups a bit.
Also, the higher ups at Fox are well aware that Palin stands absolutely no chance against Obama, and that even if she did, that wouldn't be a good thing. It will be interesting to watch Fox eat it's own and cop a Tea Party in the face should she run and get any steam up. Reason 4,354 why I desperately, desperately want her to do exactly that.

But yeah, a Fey/Palin mix up looks more like a prank than the beginnings of a dastardly Fox strategy.

I think the real Sarah Palin is much more attractive.
I just think Lisa Ann looks more like Palin than Tina Fey. (And the porn connection makes it funnier.)

Those are just not real or spectacular



I've never had any but I wouldn't want to go around looking like that. Not to get all Weineresque

Tina Fey is also way hotter than that porn star. I know this is all irrelevant but I just felt like commenting.

I read that Rolling Stone article yesterday. He's a paranoid guy.

Roger Ailes responded to several recent articles about him in an interview with Newsweek's Howard Kurtz which was published Monday.

Ailes has been the subject of two profiles--one in New York, and one in Rolling Stone--in the past few weeks. They have alleged, among other things, that he thinks Sarah Palin is an "idiot," that he despairs of the current crop of GOP presidential candidate, that he is paranoid and security-obsessed and that his boss, Rupert Murdoch, thinks he believes "crazy" things. Ailes refused to speak to both magazines for the profiles.

Ailes has previously turned to Kurtz to speak out about Fox News, though in the past, he has said quite controversial things to the longtime media reporter. For instance, he called NPR executives "Nazis" in a November interview.

In Monday's interview, Ailes struck a more congenial tone, but he pushed back against some of the claims in the recent articles. He denied that he thought Palin was stupid, saying, "she's so smart she's got the press corps running up the whole East Coast behind her bus." And he called the reports of his heavy security detail "fantasy."

Ailes also said he'd like to hire Hillary Clinton as a Fox News contributor.

"She looks unhappy at the State Department," he said. "She'd get ratings.

So tomorrow is Glenn Beck's final show at FNC.

His ratings, while down, are still higher than CNN, CNBC and MSNBC combined at 5 PM, gold has gone up $600 an ounce since his show debuted and his #1 political antagonist is a disgraced ex-congressman.

On the plus side, at least some lotion lackeys at Media Matters might see the sun for the first time in 2&1/2 years.

Glennn is equally white n' pudgy, last time I checked.

I wish him the best, as he takes time to concentrate on defending his castle / family from liberal death hordes in Central Park, who tried to strangle / rape his wife and kids during a movie showing recently.

Report: Roger Ailes Started Planning Fox News
While Working for Nixon

Adam Clark Estes | The Atlantic
Jun 30, 2011

Long before he led the Fox News empire from within his upstate New York compound, Roger Ailes worked for Richard Nixon. It was with the Nixon White House that Ailes began sketching the blueprints for what would become the right-wing answer the liberal media bias, a project that Ailes would revisit while consulting for the George H.W. Bush administration. Supported by a 318-page cache of documents obtained from the Nixon and Bush's respective Presidential Libraries, Gawker's John Cook makes the case the Ailes's "fair and balanced" network comes from the same skeazy political scheming that lead to the Watergate scandal. Cook detailed some of the highlights in a sprawling report on Gawker and has also posted the Ailes documents for public consumption. Highlights include:

* "A Plan for Putting the GOP on TV News," the 41-year-old memo that Cook says was a lynchpin in a "nakedly partisan 1970 plot by Ailes and other Nixon aides to circumvent the 'prejudices of network news' and deliver 'pro-administration' stories to heartland television viewers."

* Detailed accounts of Ailes's day-to-day activities while working for the White House. Cooks says, "[Ailes] reveled in the minutiae constructing political spectacles—stage-managing, for instance, the lighting of the White House Christmas tree with painstaking care…" There's a drawing included and instructions for Nixon not to let a six-year-old boy get credit for lighting the tree.

* A note from Watergate felon and Nixon chief-of-staff H.R. Haldeman promoting a Ailes' idea for the president to host live Q&A sessions in high schools and colleges. You might remember that when Barack Obama did this recently, Fox News called it a ploy to "indoctrinate children to support him politically."

I don't even want to think about that from any perspective.

Ann Coulter Banned From Piers Morgan's Show
Chooses FoxNews rival show instead.

So, a person I don't want to hear from, stiffs a show I don't want to see, to go on a network I don't want to watch?

I'm not sure why I posted this.
