5 things we just learned about Fox's Roger Ailes

By Brian Stelter, CNN

Now we're finding out. The New York Times obtained a copy of the book and published several quotes from it on Wednesday, kick-starting what are likely to be weeks of media coverage.

    Watched your interview concerning Fox. It was like he was high on gossip. As he has not interviewed him,how does he write a book on heresay

      I agree..very poor journalistic skills. Seemed like he forgot that his viewers were not all gay gossiping petty men.

        Surely to heaven you can come up with a better reply
        Making low underhanded comments might get you on sean hannity show but is kinda disgusting no matter how you feel about a person
        If he was your son/ would you write this about him on an open forum/lets hope not

      Because Roger Alies controls who he talks to and hides in the shadows doesn't mean a fair and honest reporter can't write about him.The fact that so many are terribly afraid to go on the record kinda proves crossing this guy can destroy a career.
      Richard Nixon didn't give Woodward and Berstein access but he was still the same kinda scary revenge seeking control freak as Alies who helped get this "I am not a crook" the only President to resign..into power
