Sloppy, Sloppy: Biography Casts Critical Light on Fox News Chief Roger Ailes
Interesting that the most scandalous charge in this New York Times item on an upcoming book on Roger Alies is denied both by Ailes and the individual in question.
Through a spokeswoman, Mr. Ailes specifically denied using an anti-Semitic slur against Mr. Zaslav.
Mr. Zaslav, now the chief executive of Discovery and one of the most powerful executives in television, also denied it. “We fought with each other and we fought with a lot of other people,” he said Tuesday in a phone interview. “But this allegation is false.” He added that he and Mr. Ailes were now friends.
Then at the bottom of the piece you find two corrections. It’s as if the liberals were slobbering all over themselves so badly at the thought of taking a shot at Ailes, truth and accuracy somehow got lost along the way. Imagine that!
An earlier version of this article misstated the parent company of the Fox News Channel. It is 21st Century Fox, not News Corporation. Also, the name of David Zaslav was misspelled in one instance. It is Zaslav, not Zazlav.
