“He’s a pervert”; Political Correctness is Triumphant at Fox News! Founder Roger Ailes Resigns: Was this … “a win for the women of Fox News,” or a Pyrrhic Victory for Megyn Kelly, at Their Expense?
By Nicholas Stix
Previously, on this topic, at WEJB/NSU:
“Roger Ailes is Out at Fox News Channel! Founder of Rupert Murdoch-Owned, Republican News Channel, the King of Cable News, and the Biggest Figure in All TV News, Has been Taken Down by a Sexual Harassment Scandal, and Fox News Might go Down with Him…”
On the Don Lemon show after the Republican National Convention tonight, reporters Brian Stelter and Dylan Byers were on, along with the panel. Stelter said of Ailes’ resignation, “This is a win for the women of Fox News.”
“There is a real chance that he’ll be working for Donald Trump. He worked for Nixon. He worked for Reagan. He brings a lot to the table.”
On the same show, in one of her rare charitable statements regarding Donald Trump, Ted Cruz puppet/NeverTrumper Amanda Carpenter said that most (Republican) politicians “played the game of ‘How will I look on Fox?’ Donald Trump did not play that game.”
She argued that Trump changed the rules of Republican politics.
Lightweight Trump supporter Andy Dean then lost it.
“We’re sugarcoating it. There’s something seriously wrong here. He’s a pervert. He should not be near Donald Trump. I don’t want him near the candidate.”
There were two things going on. Dean was frustrated by being bullied for days by black supremacist, openly homosexual host Don Lemon, who hates Trump with a passion, and would interrupt Dean, and demand he shut up, whenever Dean made a good point on Trump’s behalf. (Early in the campaign, Lemon restrained himself long enough to get an interview with the candidate, but has since thrown all pretenses to professionalism overboard.)
Dean needed to lash out at someone, but he couldn’t lash out at the real source of his rage, Lemon, so he took the safe route of vilifying Ailes, the heterosexual, white man.
The other, but related aspect is triangulation. On sexual politics, Dean is as far left as they come. He’s not a man, he’s a mangina. He had praised Trump earlier in the evening, regarding homosexuals and so-called transgenders, bragging that at Trump Tower, anyone can use whatever bathroom one wants, and that he always uses the women’s room, because it smells better than the men’s room.
A prominent Trump supporter and representative calls a heterosexual man who allegedly hits on his female employees a “pervert,” while supporting sexual psychopaths who think they are the opposite of what they are, and yet we are supposed to believe that Donald Trump has buried political correctness? What is it the French say?
Meanwhile, that “win for the women of Fox News” may prove to be pyrrhic. The reason they have their jobs, and earn millions at the king of cable news is Roger Ailes. They killed the goose that laid the golden eggs.
A report by Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle suggests that the person at the middle of the Roger Ailes saga is less Gretchen Carlson than Megyn Kelly. When Carlson launched her sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes, the matter was a he said-she said affair. But Kelly immediately asserted that she too had been a victim of Ailes’ “sexual harassment” app. ten years ago, a charge that many are mocking, since she never quit the cable news network, and has since been rewarded by her supposed tormentor with promotions and millions in pay.
CLEVELAND, Ohio — All of Fox News’ primetime lineup is willing to walk out of the network with chief executive and chairman Roger Ailes if he is pushed out by Rupert Murdoch and his family, Breitbart News has confirmed.Was the threat serious, or a bluff? We shall soon see. If they follow through on it, Megyn Kelly may be the most powerful woman in cable news—and the loneliest.
Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Greta Van Susteren, Shepard Smith, Bret Baier, Eric Bolling, Neil Cavuto, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Laura Ingraham, Geraldo Rivera, Juan Williams, Jeanine Pirro, Bo Dietl, Monica Crowley, all of the Fox and Friends hosts, and at least 50 Fox News contributors are willing to depart the network if Ailes is ousted, and leave with him to form a new network, one of the network’s anchors told Breitbart News late Tuesday.
All of them stand against Megyn Kelly, and all of them stand with Roger Ailes. [“Exclusive — Fox News Stars Stand With Roger Ailes Against Megyn Kelly, More than 50 Fox Contributors, All Primetime, Willing to Walk,” by Matthew Boyle, Breitbart, 19 Jul 2016.]
