Two months ago a liberal visitor to the Victory Girls Facebook page attempted to shame us for not commenting on the breaking Roger Ailes sexual harassment story. He scoffed, “Victory Girls silent on Roger Ailes. Interesting,” adding, “I was thinking there might be some opinion on how Ailes departure impacts the trust that conservatives have faithfully placed in the news outlet. And how much severance should be rewarded to a habitual monster.”

Gretchen Carlson and Roger Ailes.

Ironic, this coming from a man who will undoubtedly vote for the wife of a former president with kinky sexual predilections for interns and cheap cigars.

Maybe we didn’t write on Ailes at the time because there were other, more pressing news items on which to comment — like a certain presidential candidate and her emails. Or her pay-for-play scheme set up through her “charitable” foundation. We just figured the truth would emerge, and the media market would respond.

Now the Ailes scandal has reared its head once again, this time with more evidence. The woman who initially brought a sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes, former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, has audio tapes of Ailes’s words, according to a report in New York magazine.


Beginning in 2014, Carlson would take her iPhone into meetings with Ailes and secretly record him uttering repugnant comments such as, “I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago, and then you’d be good and better and I’d be good and better. Sometimes problems are easier to solve,” and “I’m sure you can do sweet nothings when you want to.”

Rumors of such recordings have been floating around for about a month.

In the meantime, six more women from Fox News have come forward charging sexual harassment on the part of Ailes. While these women worked behind the scenes at Fox, bigger names like Andrea Tantaros and Megyn Kelly have also named Ailes as a harasser.

That’s not all, folks.

The corruption extends far beyond the problem in Ailes’s trousers. Ailes has used the Fox News budget as hush money against the harassment charges, along with creating smear campaigns against his enemies.

But back to what our liberal commenter said about the “trust that conservatives have faithfully placed in the news outlet.”

Whether or not Roger Ailes is successfully sued for sexual harassment does not impinge upon my conservative convictions. Fox News does not command my worldview, nor should it dictate any other conservative’s. No person should ever place full trust and confidence in the words and accomplishments of anyone in the public square. For conservatives that includes not only Ailes, but also Limbaugh, Colter, Hannity, or Trump. For liberals, that should mean anyone named Clinton, among others.

There are a myriad of sources from which one can glean news and information, merely by accessing the internet. One needs an inquiring mind and enough skepticism to check out sensationalism that sounds far-fetched. Just because someone or something validates what one may think, it shouldn’t be allowed to control what they think. And Roger Ailes — who probably is an abusive and corrupt bastard — matters not one whit.

    It never bothered a single one of the liberals I knew when Slick Willy had trouble defining the word “is”. They still believe he was the best President, even the liberal females. Why should this be any different? Because liberals says so!

    “some opinion on how Ailes departure impacts the trust that conservatives have faithfully placed in the news outlet”

    Funny on so many levels.

    1) FOX News has been irrelevant for about 10 years, ever since they went the Celebrity Journalism route. I know “faux” news is still the Big Bad Wolf in liberal eyes, but they are fighting the last war.

    2) Liberals don’t have the right to hector conservatives about hypocrisy on this subject. For a decade, they lecture us on the evils of sexual predation in the workplace, but when their boy Bill sexually assaulted two female subordinates (Jones and Wiley) they squawked “its just about sex, MoveOn.org”
