The boys headed for the locker room, but Ailes motioned for Zac, who loped over. “You made a couple of mistakes out there,” he told the boy. “You threw that one ball away. And you missed an open shot underneath.” Zac nodded. “But,” Ailes said more gently, “you did a lot of things right. You played hard. You hustled. You scored 20 percent of your team’s points. And when you got hit you didn’t whine.”

    This is the epitome of the Fauz News Story. 20% of ten is 2. Ailes Jr scores one measley basket for his team - and he is by far the tallest. Kind of reminds you of Fox being #1 in ratings, but last in actual intellectual value.

    As a basketball fanatic, I find this very funny.
    i see this as him being a good father
    he pointed out some shortcomings but balanced those criticisms by also specifying positive actions of the kid
    as a basketball official who sees a lot of inappropriate parent/coaching behavior, i find nothing inappropriate about ailes' actions at his kid's basketball game


    and his assessment of gingrich was spot on

    Most politicians are arrogant pompous asses and Newt is no exception. Having said that when he was running things in DC his contract with America kicked ass and got us on the right track for a short time anyway.

    I do not see anything wrong with him coaching his son. I have two sons now 15 and 21 who play/played ALOT of basketball. Both play/played AAU level.

    I spelled it out earlier in an analogy to Fox News getting the equivalent of only one basket during a basketball game as the amount of integrity they have for their programing even though they have high ratings. This really has nothing to do with his coaching his son. Again, his son scoring one basket even though he is the tallest on the team is the same as Fox having high ratings for their programming. Doesn't make a hill of beans in the end.

    You also made another snarky comment before this one. I see a pattern here.

    good! however, from my read of your post, you appeared (to me) to be critical of ailes actions after his son's ball game

    I have two sons now 15 and 21 who play/played ALOT of basketball. Both play/played AAU level.
    good. i hope you are as supportive of their efforts as ailes appears to have been of his son's

    I spelled it out earlier in an analogy to Fox News getting the equivalent of only one basket during a basketball game as the amount of integrity they have for their programing even though they have high ratings. This really has nothing to do with his coaching his son.
    but you appeared to be critical that ailes son, the tallest member of the team, only scored one basket (one-fifth of their total)
    as one-fifth of the team, ailes appeared to point out to his son that his performance was not substandard to that of his other team members; he put his son's achievement into perspective
    and if this really had nothing to do with ailes coaching his son, why did you introduce that vignette into your post?

    Again, his son scoring one basket even though he is the tallest on the team is the same as Fox having high ratings for their programming.
    you insist "This really has nothing to do with his coaching his son" while again comparing his son's scoring (or lack of same) to faux news' ratings. i believe your assessment that his ratings have "nothing to do with his coaching his son" was a correct appraisal, which then begs the question, why did you make the (invalid) comparison?

    Doesn't make a hill of beans in the end.
    on this we do agree

    Do you see me reposting five things to make a point? THAT is a hill of beans.

    Don't worry about my sons. They are doing GREAT! After all they play/played AAU

    Who are you to say my comparisons are valid or invalid? Do you think I'm serious when the title is what it is?

    how does one make a point without posting?

    no one is worried about your sons. in fact, they are to be congratulated for playing at the AAU level. YOU were the one who brought your son's experience into this just as YOU were the one who made a point to describe ailes critique of his son after his son's basketball game. if YOU do not want these things discussed, then why do YOU introduce them into the thread ... a thread that YOU created

    Who are you to say my comparisons are valid or invalid?
    i am a forum member with posting privileges, like you. YOU began this thread and made YOUR comments. i now respond with my own. surprised you were unaware this is how it works

    Do you think I'm serious when the title is what it is?
    this was posted - by YOU - in the 'breaking news' section of the forum. it was not in the 'lighter side' section, which is where most threads are placed when one is attempting to be funny rather than serious. if the posting policy has been reversed to modify that expectation, please point it out for my edification

    You are not here to decide what and where I should post. You are free to not respond if you find the content trivial.

    You are very correct in your analysis.
