Roger Ailes is the CEO of Fox News and the man responsible for turning what was once a regular cable news network is a bastion of hate- and fear-mongering that would have made Joe McCarthy turn green with pure envy. In an interview with the New Republic race, racism , Ailes declares that he is very concerned about the actions of President Obama:
“The president likes to divide people into groups,” he huffs into the phone. “He’s too busy getting the middle class to hate rich people, blacks to hate whites. He is busy trying to get everybody to hate each other.” With that off his chest, Ailes gets back on message. “We need to get along,” he says.
Since Fox has just spent four years stirring up every kind of resentment imaginable in an unsuccessful bid to deny President Obama a second term, you might be forgiven if you just spit your drink all over the monitor.
