"Every other network has given all their shows to liberals. We are the balance."
So said Roger Ailes in a profile written by the Daily Beast's Howard Kurtz Sunday which also included the Fox News chairman taking a shot at MSNBC's Joe Scarborough:
Ailes has a blunt rejoinder to those who say he runs a biased outfit: “Every other network has given all their shows to liberals. We are the balance.”
Ailes used a former Republican Congressman turned television host as an example of liberal dominance in the media:
Even MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough, a former GOP congressman, “tacks to the center,” Ailes complains, and “doesn’t act like a conservative.”
Seems a metaphysical certitude most conservatives would agree with that statement.
