    Fox News Boss: Palin Hired Because She Was ‘Hot And Got Ratings’

    In a rare interview with a non-Fox reporter, Roger Ailes made a shocking declaration while defending himself from accusations that his Fox News network was anything but “fair and balanced.”

    Speaking to The Huffington Post, Ailes argued that he hired Sarah Palin not to promote a political agenda, but “because she was hot and got ratings.”

    The interview was intended to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the controversial news network, which Ailes founded with the intention of challenging CNN back in 1996.

    By all accounts, Fox News has succeeded, replacing CNN as the ratings leader for the first time in 2002. By 2010, the network was drawing an average of 1.1 million viewers—more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

    The massive ratings were achieved by Ailes’ famous “fair and balanced” branding of the network, targeting viewers who believe that other networks have a liberal bias while Fox News “delivers them with unvarnished truth.” Yet, he has come under attack over the years from numerous detractors, who rail against what they see as simply “a mouthpiece for the Republican Party.”

    Recently, the attacks on Fox News intensified after Ailes hired several potential GOP candidates, including Palin, as contributors.

    Ailes has defended himself and the network from what he dismisses as the petty complaining of sore losers. “Everybody who’s getting their ass beat vilifies the opponent,” he says. “This is the first rule of fighting.”

      The shocking thing would be if she got hired for her brains. Of if anyone; man or woman at Fox got hired for their brains. They all got hired because they’re sub par and basically repeat ANY and ALL lies the honchos present to them.

    I don’t like Mitt Romney, for all the reasons that, evidently, his Republican detractors don’t like him. But I can’t laugh at the schoolyard ganging up on someone like that. It’s not funny. I’ve always felt embarrassed for the guys chasing someone around the schoolyard with taunts, no matter how well deserved. Yes, he certainly is a hypocrite — flip-flopper is too kind a word for him. But more importantly, as a hypocrite, as an inconsistent blabber mouth, as someone who sways with every wind that comes along, Romney would be a disaster as president for the country and the world.

    No one is going to beat President Obama in any case, but the idea of someone like Romney breathing the same oxygen as Barack Obama as though he’s a worthy opponent is repellent to me. But my heavens. is Sarah Palin the only one left?
