Title: Fox News Chief Roger Ailes Thinks Sarah Palin Is 'Stupid': New York Magazine

NEW YORK -- Fox News still dominates the cable news ratings, but chairman Roger Ailes wants something more: to help elect the next president.

That's the takeaway from Gabriel Sherman's New York magazine cover story hitting newsstands Monday. Sherman, who's currently writing a book on Fox News for Random House, looks at how Ailes -- who built up a stable of possible presidential contenders after the 2008 election, including Sarah Palin -- isn't so pleased with their chances at beating President Barack Obama in 2012.

Ailes doesn't speak on the record in the article, but several Republicans close to the Fox News chief describe his concerns going into an election year.

"He thinks things are going in a bad direction," another Republican close to Ailes told [Sherman]. "Roger is worried about the future of the country. He thinks the election of Obama is a disaster. He thinks Palin is an idiot. He thinks she's stupid. He helped boost her up. People like Sarah Palin haven't elevated the conservative movement."

Ailes, a television titan, has schooled past presidential candidates on how to handle the media. Before helping Rupert Murdoch launch Fox News in 1996, Ailes worked as a strategist for Republican presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush (whom he still talks to regularly).

But Palin, a former Alaska Governor and current Fox News contributor, hasn't always listened to Ailes' sage advice, as Sherman reported a couple months back. Although Ailes reportedly told Palin to lie low after the Tucson shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), she still went ahead with the infamous "blood libel" video.

So far, Ailes' other presidential hopefuls aren't exactly on the road to the White House.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee recently decided to continue hosting a Saturday night show on the network rather than run again for president. Fox contributor John Bolton, the U.N. ambassador under George W. Bush, hasn't ruled out running but also hasn't built any significant campaign infrastructure.

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), both of whom recently left Fox News, have already hit some rough patches on the campaign trail.

Gingrich, in a brutal first week rollout, angered the Republican establishment with a statement on "Meet the Press," faced questions about a six-figure jewelry debt, and was even doused with glittery confetti in a straight-to-YouTube clip. And, of course, the statement!

Meanwhile, Santorum ran into trouble this past week by claiming that Senator and former P.O.W. John McCain doesn't understand "enhanced interrogation" techniques like waterboarding (which is widely considered a form of torture).

Another GOP source told Sherman that "every single [Republican] candidate has consulted with Roger." However, Ailes isn't a big huge fan of any of them.

Outside of running himself -- a somewhat ridiculous idea floated in October 2009 -- what's Ailes left to do if he wants to elect a Republican in 2012? Paging Chris Christie!

Sherman reports that Ailes called the New Jersey Governor a few months ago "and encouraged him to jump into the race." That's not the first time they've discussed the idea. Ailes brought Christie and talk show host Rush Limbaugh to his upstate New York home for dinner last summer. Despite Ailes' courtship, Christie isn't running.

In the piece, Sherman also provides a behind-the-scenes look at Ailes' split with Glenn Beck, network disputes over a Palin special, the 2009 feud with the White House, and how Fox News is trying to distance itself from the Tea Party movement -- which it heavily promoted in 2009 -- by now highlighting straight news stars like Bret Baier and Shepard Smith. (Disclosure: I previously worked with Sherman at the New York Observer).

Fox News PR is notoriously aggressive in pushing back against any seemingly negative stories about the network. And even before the New York piece ran online, there was a bit of push-back from the network against the notion that Ailes and Palin are on the outs.

Shortly after New York put out a press release Friday morning promoting the upcoming Fox News story, industry blog TVNewser published a response from Ailes in support of Palin. On Thursday, MSNBC host Chris Matthews blasted her recent appearance on Fox News -- and Ailes for hiring her in the first place -- as "pathetic." Ailes, in his characteristically combative fashion, fired back: "People tell me all the time it was truly pathetic that I was the one who gave Chris Matthews his start on television."

So we'll see how Ailes responds now after a Republican close to him anonymously claims he and Matthews may actually have the same opinion of Palin.

I guess you rag on Fox as an unreliable source for extremists until they post something that you agree with. Typical post from the site pea wit. Must suck to spend all your time in a state of all-consuming hatred of an out of work politician.

war has to do something for entertainment. The voices in his head aren't speaking to him and his imaginary friends have found reasons not to come over anymore.

Fox didn't post anything, you dimwit. This is a story about Ailes in New York Magazine.

You can't refute AILES makes editorial decisions at Fox and therefore is a Fox source, so you pull a war spelling Nazi snit, as if misspelling AILES' name somehow detracts from the observation.

I guess dummy had to call in reinforcements. If AILES is not quoted, which is a nice escape hatch for you and dummy, his views were summarized or else they would not publish the article, n'est ce pas? Are you trying to say the piece is made up and AILES never said anything of the kind? And if he did, then what's your point, other than backpedaling?

My point is that you show, in nearly every post you make, that you don't have the faintest idea about what you're talking about. That would make you a star at LP, so I suggest you return there.

No one called me in but thanks for the tip on why others seem to always come to your rescue when you are on another one of your hole digging expeditions.

Actually his concerns are speculated on by his friends per the qualifier mentioned in the article.

Quote Fox when it suits you and dismiss it when it doesn't. Speculating on someone's opinions in print is called liable. You can't talk your way out of it.

Maybe they're the same poster or are just queer for each other. Both claim to be independent thinkers, yet parrot verbatim every position of the far left wing of the Democratic Party.

Now, I know I’m not going to change the minds of any of the True Believers…those who read all of Reverend Al’s sermons, and say things like, “You know, global warming can mean warmer OR colder, wetter OR drier, cloudier OR sunnier, windier OR calmer, …”. Can I get an ‘amen’??

I quoted the article posted not Fox. And it's not "libel" when the article contains a qualifier which was what I quoted.

Is English really your first language and don't you get tired of always being wrong?

Do you believe that I could pass up a chance to watch Rudy meltdown? And then having Padlock coming in to defend his honor as an unexpected benefit?

How long have you known me?

Frankly, only having Boofer weigh in with his one line 4th grade observation could be the only thing to make this better.

LOL!

Cain hit the right notes, drawing enthusiastic applause and cheers from the audience. The rhetorical question, “Is America ready for a leader and not a reader?” drew wild cheers and the chant, “Herman.” A man shouted, “Where’s your teleprompter?” in case anyone didn’t pick up on the allusion to Obama’s teleprompter addiction.

DwarF et. al., the PDS insane libTURD gang that couldn't "shoot" straight!

LOL! run away obammy!
