    Gingrich 'A PRICK,' Ailes says[W: 35]

    Fox News chief Roger Ailes calls former House Speaker Newt Gingrich "a prick" and a "sore loser" in a forthcoming biography by Zev Chafets, an exclusive excerpt of which has just been published in Vanity Fair.

    Ailes's remark about Gingrich came during the 2012 campaign season, when Gingrich, a former Fox News contributor, complained that the network was giving too much support to Mitt Romney. According to Chafets's report, Ailes found the complaint self-serving and disloyal, and told his spokesman Brian Lewis to “brush [Gingrich] back."

    “He’s a sore loser and if he had won he would have been a sore winner," Ailes reportedly said.

    Well, that is one way of putting it. I could think of a few others myself.

    Re: Gingrich 'A PRICK,' Ailes says

    At a basketball game of his 12-year-old son, Zack, (an only child) Ailes was on the sidelines. Zack's team lost.

    At the final buzzer the score was 29–10. 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.

    In further breaking news, water is wet and the sun rises in the east.

    Film at 11.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    The kid is also 12 years old and Ailes, as a father, probably didn't want his son to beat himself up for losing.

    He also probably wanted to teach his son that while only one person can win in a contest, that doesn't mean when you lose you did so because you did poorly.

    Coca-cola may be the best selling soda. Doesn't mean Pepsi is a failure.

    Lay off the kid. Stop being a jerk

    So what's the point of this thread?

    You take an article about Ailes calling Gingrich a sore loser and then somehow try to attack Ailes by bringing up how his 12-year-old son's team lost in a basketball game,

    Please explain what any of this has to do with anything.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I don't need to satisfy your points. There are plenty of other threads in Breakin News - Nonmainstream Media that don't make a point for me. Do you see me posting in them asking what is the point and wasting my time like an imbecile?
