“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?


Former longtime FNC host Gretchen Carlson is suing Roger Ailes for sexual harassment, but is she a pawn in a Megyn Kelly power play?

“Pervert” Roger Ailes, on February 11, 2015

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.

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.]
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.


“Sexual harassment victim” Megyn Kelly, possibly during the early-to-mid 2000s; is she really pulling the strings at Fox?

Interesting that if you watch Fox News,you'd never know Ailes was a)under the cloud of a lawsuit b)possibly going to leave the network and c)gone.
Negro Nightly News,was however,orgasmic in its coverage in the last three days.
Another piece of evidence that network news has long ago lost its objectivity.

How is a grown man hitting on a "grown woman" (technically, her petulance suggest extreme emotional immaturity) being a pervert, in itself that is. Now if that grown man made inappropriate suggestions for deviant sex of some kind then I might say there's some validity to the accusation, but I haven't heard anything that suggest he did nothing other than try to get into her pants the way any red blooded male might with a beautiful woman.

This is how feminism is controlling and manipulating the English language. If they say it in an ominous accusatory way then a reasonably acceptable social act becomes "perverted" and the man doing it is a "pervert". Mr. Ailes is not a pervert for desiring a beautiful woman, he might be inappropriate and overly aggressive but he's not a pervert. He might even be taking advantage of his position of power but that still doesn't equate to being "perverted".

Let's read the subtext here: Ms. Kelly is saying that Mr. Ailes is old and a fat ugly toad and I am repulsed by him, so he's a pervert for wanting to have sex with young (not that young, maybe youngish) beautiful me. I don't doubt for a moment that Ms. Kelly is physically repulsed by him, as she has a right to be, after all she is a beautiful woman, has money of her own, a lot of much younger and better looking men who want to have sex with her and certainly doesn't need to be banging an old man for his money. But if Ailes was young and handsome I think Ms. Kelly would be much less likely to feel "harassed" and certainly wouldn't define him as a pervert. If she wants to claim sexual harassment and has a legit case and can prove it then that's fine but she and her feminist allies need to lay off the "pervert" BS.

True...he's normal.You stated it well,Jerry.No one wants to look like a toad and be rejected."Alfred Hitchcock"is the apt description.His fall came from not stopping the advances after being told "no way".Both parties should have handled it in a better way.

One woman makes an accusation and you are out the door? Seems so.
