Wherein Fox’ Owners Do-In the Brand
This from Ace. Et tu, Megyn? Really?
Apparently the Murdochs would off Roger Ailes “for cause.” Have they considered the damage to the brand?
There are no major Libertarian or Conservative media channels to compete with Fox, who’s editorial viewpoint is rather a mix of Libertarian, Conservative, Squishy and Liberal perspectives. This, one may assume, is the intent of Ailes – who at the very least had the foresight to understand that libertarians and conservatives watch commercials too.
One wonders whether the vacuum of his departure will be filled by yet another squish or liberal at the helm in the mold of CNNABCCBSNBCMSDNC? Should that sad fate arise, Fox will be competing with CNN in the race to red ink.
Yours truly doesn’t watch television at home, and for the record, there is precious little on Fox’ channels to watch while on the road. (No, not Megyn. Ever.) Still, it had been the only channel worth the bother.
I suppose all things must pass. I will miss Roger Ailes’ Fox.
UPDATE: Roger has loyal friends at Fox. Who knew?
