FOX “News” seems to never tire of lying.

They bombard their ignorant viewers with a constant stream of bullshit, a lot of which (surprise surprise) makes its way into the MSM and the national discourse. When they get caught flat-out lying, they just tell more lies to try to cover the oroginal lie over.

The management of such an enterprise would most certainly have to be scum, since any decent manager would never tolerate being the head of a known bunch of liars.

It’s a good thing for FOX “News” employees that Roger Ailes happens to be precisely that kind of scum. The FOX “News” liars know that, far from being sanctioned, Ailes loves, praises, and PAYS liars.

If you have the moral compass of John Wayne Gacy, what are you waiting for? Senmd Roger your resume today.

 

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.

Ms. Regan had once been involved in an affair with Mr. Kerik, the former New York City police commissioner whose mentor and supporter, former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, was in the nascent stages of a presidential campaign. The News Corporation executive, whom she did not name, wanted to protect Mr. Giuliani and conceal the affair, she said.

 

Now, court documents filed in a lawsuit make clear whom Ms. Regan was accusing of urging her to lie: Roger E. Ailes, the powerful chairman of Fox News and a longtime friend of Mr. Giuliani. What is more, the documents say that Ms. Regan taped the telephone call from Mr. Ailes in which Mr. Ailes discussed her relationship with Mr. Kerik.

 

It is unclear whether the existence of the tape played a role in News Corporation’s decision to move quickly to settle a wrongful termination suit filed by Ms. Regan, paying her $10.75 million in a confidential settlement reached two months after she filed it in 2007.

 

Depending on the specifics, the taped conversation could possibly rise to the level of conspiring to lie to federal officials, a federal crime, but prosecutors rarely pursue such cases, said Daniel C. Richman, a Columbia University law professor and a former federal prosecutor.

 

Of course, if it were to be released, the tape could be highly embarrassing to Mr. Ailes, a onetime adviser to Richard M. Nixon whom critics deride as a partisan who engineers Fox News coverage to advance Republicans and damage Democrats, something Fox has long denied. Mr. Ailes also had close ties with Mr. Giuliani, whom he advised in his first mayoral race. Mr. Giuliani officiated at Mr. Ailes’s wedding and intervened on his behalf when Fox News Channel was blocked from securing a cable station in the city.

 

In a statement released on Wednesday, a News Corporation spokeswoman did not deny that Mr. Ailes was the executive on the recording. But the spokeswoman, Teri Everett, said News Corporation had a letter from Ms. Regan “stating that Mr. Ailes did not intend to influence her with respect to a government investigation.” Ms. Everett added, “The matter is closed.”

 

How nice. The head of an American “news” network urges his employees to lie to the Feds. Which makes me wonder just what in the HELL FOX “News” has to do in order to get into trouble. They have nakedly displayed themselves as the choreography service  for the Tea Klux Klan Party, they’ve been caught yelling “FIRE!!!” in so many crowded theaters that I’ve lost count… when does this kind of media sedition finally get the sanction it has earned for itself? Is there no one willing to make these shitbags actually come to a court of law and answer for what are clearly blatant violations of the law?

No wonder Ailes has no problem with perjury. Why would they bust him this time? They never have before.
