Last week it was revealed that legendary FOX News boss Roger Ailes allegedly told underling Judith Regan to lie to federal investigators to protect Rudy Giuliani. Regan reportedly has a tape of the telephone call in which Ailes urged her to do this. If this story is true, and the telephone call is clear, Ailes would obviously be exposed to obstruction-of-justice charges.

Again FOX network involved in lies ,federal crimes,manipulation...

Good find.

It makes you wonder though...............Will Ailes really be prosecuted, and will Guliani be reinvestigated??

I seriously doubt it, but, I guess we can only hope.

But, hey maybe now all those Fox news believers will see them for who they really are..........LOL

I'm not certain how Judith Regan was an underling of Roger Ailes, or how Ailes could have had any control over her, but if that's the case that's truly a strange arrangement within Newscorp. She was the head of her own publishing imprint at Newscorp/HarperCollins which means she basically ran her own small division. In publishing terms, she was as famous and almost as powerful as Roger Ailes is in TV. I used to work in publishing and she was a really huge deal in that world.

Good find, S&F. It seems as though every time I turn around, another story is breaking concerning Fox News and their nasty little habit of lying and spewing false propaganda. Sooner or later, we're going to have to outlaw that crap here in the U.S. like the Canadians have done. I just posted a thread regarding Fox News being denied the right to broadcast from Canada because it would violate their current law prohibiting "false and misleading " reporting.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

According to the source article, PM Stephen Harper even proposed repealing the Canadian law so as to allow Fox News to spew their lies from Canadian soil.

The trend in the DOJ is to prosecute the whistle blower.

A great deal will be made about the 'legality' of the recording and the 'admissibility' of the boss' utterances in discovery.

FOX appears to be a sanctioned affiliate of the USDHS so I find it unlikely that this will be prosecuted... if it is prosecuted, I suspect the case will be undermined from the outset... and on the off-chance that the case accidentally was brought before a jury and he was subsequently investigated, I full expect a 'retro-active' immunity to be given - just like the telecomms who were helping them spy on Americans all those years... if not by the congress or senate.. by presidential executive order...

Considering the source is owned by Al Gore...



Not gonna buy this just yet. This is election season technically. And Fox is a target of campaign vitriol from the left as they are the only conservative media on TV.

Current Media 'About' page/Management link


Former Vice President Al Gore is Chairman and co-founder of Current Media, an Emmy award winning, independently owned cable and satellite television nonfiction network for young people based on viewer-created content and citizen journalism. He also serves as chairman of Generation Investment Management, a firm that is focused on a new approach to sustainable investing.


Basically they make crap up and have the gall to call Fox News liars

And in this country innocent until proven guilty still applies.

Dude .... please watch "War you don't see " .When i say blood on their hands i say blood on their hands and i'm not joking ... All MSM should be prosecuted in a court of law for spreading the lie about WMD in Iraq

Right before U.S. forces invaded Iraq, O'Reilly made a bold promise on ABC about Iraq's WMDs: "If the Americans go in and overthrow Saddam Hussein and it's clean, he has nothing, I will apologize to the nation, and I will not trust the Bush Administration again, all right?" Last week, thanks to persistent needling from ABC host Charlie Gibson, O'Reilly mustered a half-hearted apology: "Well, my analysis was wrong and I'm sorry.. I was wrong. I'm not pleased about it at all." As to the promise to "never trust the Bush administration again," he was considerably less forceful: "I am much more skeptical of the Bush administration now than I was at that time," he explained, before blaming CIA chief George Tenet for Bush's troubles.

Ny times also appologies for covering the truth about weapons of mass destruction

Appologies will not help thousands dead and injured soldiers and civilians

This is not right wing ..this is inhuman !!

So

The only people who should be prosecuted for Iraq WMD BS are the people who peddled it and fabricated evidence that they disseminated to mass media.

If the media is guilty of anything it would be not asking enough questions. Blood on their hands is going too far IMO.

That blame lies squarely on Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and the rest.

How much does Roger pay you to haul his bucket?

And left wing???

Why I thought you were beyond such petty labels...

I think what you fail to recognize (eternally so) is that FOX is exactly what taints conservatism, it has become
the embodiment of "conservation" because you defend it, it would change if you stood up for YOUR idealism.

Even though FOX pisses on Ron Paul and his ideas, promotes war, promotes big government, GITMO, PATRIOT ACT, etc... y'all come in and play defense.

You are too bright to continue doing this... once you realize that as a conservative, you have a lot more power over conservatism than the left, you might figure it all out. FOX is your real nemesis

There's a myriad of different opinions on Fox.

You wouldn't know that by watching MOX videos that take things out of context.


They present democrats, libertarians, conservatives, big and small government people, Bill O has been defending unions for god's sake!

I don't agree with everything that is said on Fox news, but that's why I watch it. It's better than the watered down versions of conservatism and overt liberalism out of all the other channels.

Seems this whole thing isn't true.




ROGER AILES INDICTMENT STORY UPDATE: Source Was Some Guy In Airport Well, Salon's Justin Elliott checked with Barry Ritholtz, and, apparently, Barry elaborated: Ritholtz's source for the post was a man he happened to meet and strike up a conversation with at a Barbados airport over the weekend, he told me in an interview this afternoon. Read more: www.businessinsider.com... [/quo[]te]


And from Salon:


"If it's true we'll find out. If it's not, no big deal," he says. "We'll see where this goes."

salon.com

Oh well, true, untrue.
It's no big deal.
Pretty much sums up all media,
truth is no big deal.
