FOX News Chief: I Hired Sarah Palin Because ‘She Was Hot And Got Ratings’

This Friday marks Fox News’ 15th anniversary and as a result Fox chief Roger Ailes has been making the media rounds providing some rare insight into his thinking.

Here is Ailes defending himself against charges that his network has a political bias: “I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings.”

Hard to believe

Before you conclude this is just further evidence that the love fest between Fox and Palin has cooled, rest assured Ailes has been out and about bashing his various anchors for the last week or two.  According to Bill O’Reilly he enjoys stirring things up. 

It remains to be seen whether Palin finds it so amusing.
