Roger Ailes for President!
Hell, why not? Of course, this would create something of a sticky situation for Fox, but what do they care? I'm sure they would continue to be just as objective as they are now.

"It was an incendiary allegation - and a mystery of great intrigue in the media world: After the publishing powerhouse Judith Regan was fired by HarperCollins in 2006, she claimed that a senior executive at its parent company, News Corporation, had encouraged her to lie two years earlier to federal investigators who were vetting Bernard B. Kerik for the job of homeland security secretary...Now, court documents make clear whom Regan was accusing of urging her to lie: Roger Ailes, the powerful chairman of Fox News and a longtime friend of Rudy Giuliani. The documents say that Ms. Regan taped the call from
Mr. Ailes in which Mr. Ailes discussed her relationship with Mr. Kerik.”

"Someone claimed that Ailes was scheduled to speak at their event in March, but canceled. It appears that Roger’s people, ostensibly using a clause in his contract, said he “cannot appear for legal reasons.” I asked “What, precisely, does that mean?” The response:
‘Roger Ailes will be indicted - probably this week, maybe even Monday.’
