    Talking Points Memo ^ | April 13, 2012 | David Taintor
    Sarah Palin, in an interview with Breitbart News, responded to Fox News chief Roger Ailes’ remark that she “had no chance” of becoming president. Palin called the Fox executive’s comment “interesting.” She continued: I haven’t heard all of his remarks, but I wonder if he is aware that the same thing was said about me when I ran for city council, mayor, and eventually governor. No doubt many people who are told they can’t do something will work that much harder, and they succeed. Maybe you guys should send him a copy of Steve Bannon’s The Undefeated. The theme of...

    Fox News ^ | Jan. 17, 2011
    MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The Republican candidates were returning to the campaign trail Tuesday slightly bruised but unbowed after a raucous debate that left Mitt Romney fielding attacks from the get-go and all five candidates earning wild reception from a fired-up audience that will be casting votes alongside fellow South Carolinians on Saturday. Romney was put on defense out of the box at the Fox News/Wall Street Journal/South Carolina GOP debate -- answering questions about his record at private venture firm, Bain Capital; distancing himself from super PAC ads against fellow candidates; defending his record as Massachusetts governor, and dodging...

    Fox News Poll: Romney Bests Gingrich in Matchups Against Obama By Dana Blanton December 08, 2011 | Newt Gingrich has increased his lead over Mitt Romney in the race for the Republican nomination, yet the former House speaker is weaker than Romney with the general electorate. In a hypothetical matchup, Barack Obama is just 2 percentage points ahead of Romney (44-42 percent), according to a Fox News national poll released Thursday. Three weeks ago, Romney had a narrow 2-point edge over Obama in the head-to-head matchup (44-42 percent). In every other matchup of the two candidates over the past year,...

    The Washington TImes ^ | Oct. 6, 2011 | Jennifer Harper
    Fox News founder Roger Ailes drew gleeful reactions from liberal journalists for explaining his decision to hire Sarah Palin as a contributor because, “She was hot and got good ratings.” ... The press automatically assumed that Mr. Ailes, 71, meant Mrs. Palin was hot, as in hubba-hubba hot. There was no mention of the possibility that Mr. Ailes could have been referring to hot, as in ratings hot, or buzz hot.

    Could Fox News be moving away from the right? As the Tea Party's popularity fades and the country grows increasingly tired of partisan bickering, Fox News chief Roger Ailes is making what he calls a “course correction.” Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin “became a bit of a branding issue for us,” he tells Howard Kurtz in Newsweek. Republican candidates still consult Ailes: when Rick Perry was still weighing a presidential bid, he stopped by Ailes's office and confided he was worried about being able to raise money, and Mitt Romney took Ailes out for a pasta dinner. But Ailes also...

    Hume: ‘Perry is about one-half a step away from almost total collapse’ Jeff Poor - The Daily Caller 24 mins ago Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s lackluster performance in the three Republican primary debates he has participated in thus far has many conservatives scratching their heads and wondering if he isn’t the dream candidate many thought he might be two months ago. But just how much trouble is his campaign in? While analyzing the results of Saturday’s Florida Straw Poll on “Fox News Sunday,” Fox News senior political contributor Brit Hume said businessman Herman Cain’s victory may not mean all too...
