I have to wonder how the Founders would have regarded power like Roger Ailes now has.
He has a security detail (not just a body guard). Now, why would a simple journalist, just telling the truth, need a small army to protect him. Got RPG?
Face it, folks. The first amendment was not meant to protect organized sedition of our nation. We need some serious rethink. Especially now that the Robert's court is doing its best to give these gangsters even more power than they've ever had.
Rupert Murdoch: the king of media paradoxes
Of course, Murdoch, through Ailes, a former Nixon aide, has effectively polarized the political dialogue in this country, and Ailes knows the firestorms he systematically sets off. He has become so paranoid about his personal safety that his daily trek to work from Westchester County is fortified by a security force sizable enough for an Arab potentate (Murdoch, by contrast, often walks to work by himself).
