  •  Loved the ending of the piece. (6+ / 0-)
    Last week, Ailes turned 71. He’s spending considerable time thinking about his legacy. It bothers him that he’s still regarded as an outsider. “He doesn’t want to be hated,” a GOPer who knows Ailes well said. “It really bothers him.You can’t gross a billion a year and retain an outlaw sensibility forever.”

    For such a smug smarmy bastard, that really is hard to believe.  He knows damn well that half the electorate (at least the part that knows who he is) hates him like the plague that he is.   I guess either the author is trying to get a little sympathy or RW victimhood going (something that wasn't apparent in the rest of the article) or the source is talking about the Village.   Still it's a good image to end the article on.  One envisages poor wittle woger crying himself to sleep every night by singing Nobody likes me.... I guess I'll eat some worms...
