Donald Trump, Megyn Kelly, Roger Ailes and Fox News

FYI, people.  Stop listening to mainstream media.  They LIE.  Why did Megyn Kelly asked Donald Trump such pointed questions?  Because her boss and the CEO and Chairman of Fox News, Roger Ailes, ordered her to do so.  Ailes told Trump before the debates that he’d be treated “fairly,” yet Megyn’s comment was clearly a low blow.  The Don countered well,so Ailes is making it personal, pulling out all stops to discredit Trump, even if it means violating news reporting ethics.  It’s a well-known fact that Ailes is a longtime friend of journalist and media personality Barbara Walters, one of the most profound liberals in news throughout the last thirty years.

That’s not to say that Ailes is a liberal.  Far from it.  In 1987 and 1988, Ailes was credited (along with Lee Atwater) with guiding George H. W. Bush to victory in the Republican primaries and the later come-from-behind victory over Michael Dukakis. Ailes scripted and (with Sig Rogich) produced the “Revolving Door” ad, as well as all of Bush’s broadcast spots in the primary and general-election campaigns (Source:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Ailes#Political_consulting).

However, Ailes is first and foremost an insanely rich businessman who can’t stop doing what he does best:  Amassing wealth.  Ailes is credited with the “Orchestra Pit Theory” regarding sensationalist political coverage in the news media, which originated with his quip:  “If you have two guys on a stage and one guy says, ‘I have a solution to the Middle East problem,’ and the other guy falls in the orchestra pit, who do you think is going to be on the evening news?”

Ailes’ order to Megyn Kelly was to make Trump fall into the proverbial orchestra pit.  Although it certainly made the evening news, it backfired for Ailes and his plan to discredit Trump, who did a decent job of turning things back on Megyn’s question while showcasing his principle strength:  Leadership.

In the meantime, Fox News remains one of the most neutral and objective news shows on television today.  This is substantiated by the fact that it’s also the most watched news programs, particularly by unaffiliated voters.

Thus, when I say, “stop listening to mainstream media,” I’m not saying “don’t watch Fox News.”  I’m saying, “take everything with a grain of salt,” along with “do some research — know the back story.”  It took me all of ten minutes to uncover the back story provided above.
