Fox News: Conspiring News Theories, since 1996.

"The only secure room [in Fox News Headquarters is] a supply closet" - Fox News CEO. Source: Rupert Murdoch, CEO News Corp (Fox News parent).

Fox News has high cable rating, including being criticized/applauded as a center of controversy. Murdoch appointed Roger Ailes as permanent CEO of Fox News. Still there.

The paranoia and influence of Fox News CEO Roger Ailes have been well-documented, although his more colorful aspects are not. Enter biography from MSNBC contributor and Bloomberg View columnist Jonathan Alter, The Center Holds: Obama and His Enemies, which covers the last two years in American politics, most notably the presidential election, and comes with a chapter on Fox News. Stories about Ailes cutting the mike on Geraldo Rivera notwithstanding, the CEO's views are so embedded in the network's DNA, Alter explains, that he rarely has to tell his employees what to do. They know what produces ratings.
Alter calls Fox News the "validator" of stories that originate from conservative websites like Newsmax, the Washington Examiner, the Daily Caller, and Red State before winding up on Drudge, who filters those that will most rile the conservative audience.

Fox News producers, who Alter claims... Alter points to the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court in 2009: "a Fox producer sent out an email saying that of the two still photos the network had of Sotomayor, the unsmiling, less attractive picture should be used on the air."

Rupert Murdoch, Alter reports, "routinely" says Ailes is "cuckoo," "bonkers," "nuts," and "crazy," according to two former News Corp. senior executives, but he sees the humor (and, of course, the dollar signs) in keeping him around. Still, Murdoch has been known to poke fun at his deputy: "Roger came in over the weekend to work in the only room that he thought was secure — a supply closet," the boss reportedly laughed to other Fox execs. According to Alter, this wasn't far from the truth: "Ailes had a television monitor on his desk that showed video of the empty hall outside his office so that he would have warning if terrorists were coming to kill him." Ailes, meanwhile, is said to be not ignorant of his own reputation: "They hate me because I'm fat," he's told co-workers repeatedly, writes Alter.

No problem HotW

I hate editing other people's posts but we do at least try to keep DP newsworthy and on as factual a course as we can.

Which is certainly no easy task. : /

So sometimes it's pretty much unavoidable.

Not True, Motion for Admin to edit title to reflect actual facts

Title is factually wrong, regardless of what some may want.

Thank you

for the correction update Allison


Looks like title was changes as I was posting.

Wether or not Hannity keeps time slot or not is of no consequence to me, but accurate communication is. Sensational headlines helped print media become irrelevant. Please do not do it to
The DP.

That would be too bad...

FOX News and Hannity... these two steaming piles of #### are made for each other.

It's all about ratings.

Hannity's ratings have gone down and show no signs of going back up, as more and more truth comes out and people are tired of the lopsided spin. He will be repositioned in another time slot.

Enter Megan Kelly. Not that there will be any less spin but, some look at her as... well, let's just say some people like to "look" at her. Gotta think that Faux believe that alone will get the ratings back up. Another blonde bubble.

Hannity is so much less offensive than OReilly

I'd like to see Bill the Bloviator get dumped - not just bumped.

If they dump OReilly, who would be there to look out for us?

us the folks??


I wonder what they plan on doing with Greta..I have been watching and enjoying her for a few weeks now. Megan is okay but Greta is smarter and more independent minded. Megan will do what they tell her to do,

Agree - I like Greta but CANNOT stand her guests

- Rove
- McCain
- Graham

Hmmmm, Greta

Granted, she's saavy, but I couldn't watch her anymore after I saw her fawning all over Kissinger. YUCK!

No way that is happening....

No way that is happening.... only liberals wishful thinking.. He beats all others in that time slot..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...


Unless N3 has actual, reliable information that LA times and others don't have, he's just being bumped from his time slot.

There is something

going down in the word of big media.
I don't trust any of it.

What is that you are feeling Sean?

Irrelevance creeping up on you?

Is this true?

With all the satires around here lately, I'm wondering. Please say it's true!

Most likely he is just being bumped out of his usual time to either early or a later time slot. He appears to have a contract until 2016 and wont be leaving FOX.

la times says he's just been bumped from his time slot. to be replaced with the no less repugnant, meagan kelly. so i dunno.
