Vanity Fair has a new piece about Fox News chief
Jabba the Hut Roger Ailes, and it's as charming as you might imagine.
[Ailes' spokesman Brian] Lewis then read Ailes a summary of the flap over Democratic operative Hilary Rosen’s comment that Ann Romney, mother of five, had never worked a day in her life. Ailes spun it without hesitation. “Obama’s the one who never worked a day in his life. He never earned a penny that wasn’t public money. How many fund-raisers does he attend every week? How often does he play basketball and golf? I wish I had that kind of time. He’s lazy, but the media won’t report that.”
So Fox News' chief said the President is a lazy black man who lives off public money and loves to play basketball. Nothing at all racist about that characterization.
For the record, Obama taught law at a private university and worked at a law firm, so Ailes is not only peddling racist garbage, he's peddling lies.
Fair and balanced!
