Fox CEO Roger Ailes says he will not run for the U.S. Presidency. Apparently Ailes believes that the country needs "fair and balanced" coverage that Fox News provides more than it needs Ailes being President.
I may vomit. In fact, I think that I may have just a little bit as I write this.
The arrogance and hubris of Ailes are truly extraordinary things. However, these two characteristics may only be surpassed by Ailes' apparent delusion. Considering Ailes past statements comments regarding the purpose of Fox News to fight the Democrats and Obama in particular as well as the "fair and balanced" approach provided by the likes of Beck, Hannity, and O'Reilly says it all.
While President Obama's decision to fight Fox strikes me as pointless, as Fox is not worthy of acknowledging, Ailes "self sacrifice" to not run for the Presidency is just damn funny! Let me guess, he gets the votes of the teabaggers, Beck, Rush, Hannity, and his mom!
Maybe Ailes should just build his own Oval Office. He better pad the walls while you are at it.
Congressman James Clyburn joins me tomorrow on Air America Radio. He is U.S. House Whip and a great public servant. Hope you can join the program tomorrow on airamerica.com. We will be talking about the public option and whether or not we have turned a corner. This is going to be fun!
Dick Cheney said that President Obama is "dithering" on the question of Afghanistan. What a joke. A similar request was on President Bush's desk, and presumably Vice President Cheney's desk, for 8 months. And how did that go. And consider, does Cheney have any credibility at all when it comes to Afghanistan?
I appear tonight with Ed Schultz on MSNBC at 6 p.m. e.t. to talk about that and more. Hope you can catch it.
I'm looking forward to appearing on MSNBC tomorrow night with Ed Schultz at 6 p.m. e.t. My guess is we will talk Afghanistan, Wall Street, health care and probably everything else under the sun. This should be a lot of fun.
Hope you can watch.
I have been very lucky to comes across an extraordinary person. Her name is Ariane Kirtley and she is the executive director of Amman Imman. She works in Niger to provide water to people who might otherwise die of thirst. She joins me tomorrow to talk about her work.
Hope you can catch it.
As the U.S. House of Representatives tries to reconcile its health insurance reform, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) joins the program on Friday at 1:30 p.m. e.t.. I expect this to be a very interesting conversation. Hope you can catch it.
As the Obama Administration continues to struggle with the question of Afghanistan, I will appear on MSNBC this morning at 10:30 a.m. to talk about possible options. When you compare Taliban competency with Afghan Presidnet Kazai incompetency, it is difficult to figure which direction to jump.
Hope you can watch.
What might have happened if somebody warned a federal regulatory agency that a meltdown was coming? Well, they were warned. However, it apparently didn't matter.
Frontline correspondent Michael Kirk joins me tomorrow to discuss The Warning. This is an extraordinary piece about arrogance and takes no prisoners. It hammers a lot of people in all administrations. This is an awesome piece of journalism. It appears on Frontline on PBS on October 20, 2009 at 9 p.m e.t. Hope you can catch it.
