Murdoch, Ailes, and Winning

October 1st, 2006

A recent quote from Faux News chief Roger Ailes:

Murdoch didn’t invest a billion dollars in this company so people can have jobs. … He did it to WIN. … He wants to win and so do I.

One question is, how does Ailes define the word “win”? Win in the ratings game? Or win politically? The conventional wisdom would point to the former, but you have to wonder… if suddenly the market turned liberal and you had to be liberal to get ratings, how badly would Ailes and Murdoch want to “win” the market then?
