This is worth a read, if for no other reason than the light it shines on the emphasis Fox “News” places on fear-mongering and reciting whatever talking points its management gets from the GOP.

Fear, in fact, is precisely what Ailes is selling: His network has relentlessly hyped phantom menaces like the planned “terror mosque” near Ground Zero, inspiring Florida pastor Terry Jones to torch the Koran. Privately, Murdoch is as impressed by Ailes’ business savvy as he is dismissive of his extremist politics. “You know Roger is crazy,” Murdoch recently told a colleague, shaking his head in disbelief. “He really believes that stuff.”
It’s saying something when Rupert Murdoch thinks you’re crazy.
