Roger Ailes -- Is Anyone Surprised?
No one should be surprised. Ailes built his career as a political operative specializing in dirty tricks, lies, racism, sexism, and packaging/spin. Fox News was his crowning achievement -- an all-propaganda "news" network dedicated to waging a 24-7 partisan assault on public opinion. A lot of suckers swallowed it whole.
Ailes was a proudly unreformed sleazy asshole, and it finally caught up with him. Ignominiously dumped by the Murdoch clan. Couldn't happen to a more deserving piece of shit.
This article has been in the Buster's Links sidebar for five years, but it's still great if you want to read more about Ailes and Fox News.
