Unless he’s being misquoted and there’s no reason to believe he is based on his track record when it comes to the Governor, Ailes isn’t even publicly hiding it anymore:
Roger Ailes says “Sarah Palin had no chance to be President.”
Ailes, on Sarah Palin: “Anyone think she had a chance to be president?” Says she, others are picked solely for ratings.
It’s tough to conclude from these public assertions from Ailes that he has any respect for Governor Palin. From my vantage point, the Governor appeared to be alluding to Ailes and his “news” network at times in her interview with Levin yesterday. There’s a reason why Roger Ailes’ “news” network is the only one that cites Rasmussen polls seriously.
