What Ailes the Liberal Media?
The first glimpse we get of our hero in the new book Roger Ailes: Off Camera isn’t promising. The author, Zev Chafets, sits with Ailes at his 10-year-old son’s basketball game at an Upper East Side prep school. It’s a truth universally acknowledged: A man is never less appealing than when he is watching his son play sports. If he wanted to charm the reader, Ailes would have been better off posing in a terry-cloth bathrobe at seven in the morning before his first cup of coffee. With a bad case of flu. And a hangover.
