    Widow Of Former Fox News CEO Slams Network

    Published on

    The widow of Fox News founder Roger Ailes is outraged by what has become of her husband’s legacy in the wake of the dismissal of anchor Tucker Carlson and network adjustments intended to conceal it from further scrutiny following its landmark lawsuit settlement with Dominion Voting Systems. These network reforms were intended to shield it from future scrutiny.

    During an interview with Newsmax, Elizabeth Ailes elaborated on her most recent tweet, in which she stated, “It took you 20 years to develop Fox News into the powerhouse that it was, whereas it took the Murdochs only six years to wreak havoc. Rupert believed he could perform your duties. What a farce. He has the money but could never match your brilliance.”

    “I think I caused quite a stir because for one thing I told the truth. Truth is in short supply today. As you know it did take Roger 20 years to build the channel, and he never once had his hand off the wheel… I decided to make it clear that Rupert thought he could do Roger’s job… He had the checkbook but he could never hold a candle to Roger’s genius.”

    When asked if she believed that Fox had moved toward the center or even to the left due to Murdoch’s two sons, she responded that she did not concur. Elizabeth Ailes suggested that the network is presently attempting to appeal to “CNN viewers.”

    “The sons, Lachlan and James, had decided they wanted Roger gone, and Roger said to me, ‘These useless kids, Tweedle-Dumb and Tweedle-Dumber, are going to ruin the channel and turn it into CNN,’” Ailes said.

    Elizabeth Ailes stated to Newsmax that her husband would have never dismissed Tucker Carlson. Roger Ailes was primarily responsible for establishing Fox News Channel as a conservative media leader.

    “It did take Roger 20 years to build the channel, and he never once had his hand off the wheel,” she said Thursday on “Eric Bolling The Balance” “He had his 8 o’clock call, his 2:30 meeting, and he was always in touch even on a rare day that he might take a day off.”

    She stated that, as with Bill O’Reilly, Roger Ailes would have been involved in how Tucker Carlson “positioned his shows” whenever something controversial or significant occurred. He was always in touch with the talent, never telling them what to do or how to express something, but rather keeping everyone in their lane, if you will.

    Since Carlson was fired from Fox, many viewers have switched to alternative conservative news sources, especially Newsmax, according to Elizabeth Ailes, who claimed to have spoken with Carlson “a few times” since the firing. CONTINUE READING…
