From the department of ‘no one could’ve predicted’. Via Political Wire:
When Judith Regan was fired in 2006, she claimed a senior executive at News Corporation “had encouraged her to lie to federal investigators,” the New York Timesreports.
The investigators had been vetting former New York City police chief Bernard Kerik, who had been nominated to become Homeland Security secretary and who had had an affair with Regan. The executive wanted to keep the affair quiet to protect the presidential aspirations of Rudy Giuliani, Kerik’s prime supporter.
According to affidavits — and a tape Regan made of the conversation — the previously unnamed executive was Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes.
Hands up, anyone who’s surprised. Outraged, sure. But actually surprised? At this stage of the game in the FAUX “News” Channel’s transition from a conservative news outlet to an outright political propaganda PAC? Is ANYONE who hasn’t been living in a cave for at least the last half-dozen years truly surprised?
