Skip to comments.Roger Ailes' letter to Fox employees
Posted on 05/24/2013 4:01:31 AM PDT by Timber Rattler
The recent news about the FBIs seizure of the phone and email records of Fox News employees, including James Rosen, calls into question whether the federal government is meeting its constitutional obligation to preserve and protect a free press in the United States. We reject the government's efforts to criminalize the pursuit of investigative journalism and falsely characterize a Fox News reporter to a Federal judge as a "co-conspirator" in a crime. I know how concerned you are because so many of you have asked me: why should the government make me afraid to use a work phone or email account to gather news or even call a friend or family member? Well, they shouldnt have done it. The administrations attempt to intimidate Fox News and its employees will not succeed and their excuses will stand neither the test of law, the test of decency, nor the test of time. We will not allow a climate of press intimidation, unseen since the McCarthy era, to frighten any of us away from the truth.

No worries. Whorealdo will explain it all away...
McCarthy was right.
I’ll bet ole Shep’s lead-off story today will be the fag invasion of the Boy Scouts. Can see the glee in his eyes now.
He’ll also voice his disappointment that sodomite Scout leaders are not being accepted just yet, but say it’s bound to happen soon.
Pretty sad that letter had to be written at all. America is so upside down....
Now that he’s made a stand, will they start reporting ALL the news that’s out there?
Thank you for sharing that with me .... at least it was before breakfast!
I guess we’ll see. The thing really is, is MURDOCH up for the fight.
It could be because Ailes is SCARED of the Obama White House.
Isaiah 5:20 explains “the world is so upside down”.
Was the charge “buggery”?
Lost 90% credibility right there !
Step away from the mirror and try a book, Roger ..
Hey Ailes, enough of that “McCarthy” crap. Stop perpetuating a lie.
(putting on my Clintonesque legalese parsing hat)
U.S. Constitution, Amendment 1: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The text says that CONGRESS shall make no law. Where does it say the Executive Branch can't?
You know they'll do it...
Ailes is just another “Amanda Bynes Dead Body Part”....
Why hasn’t Fox taken legal action?
Are they still so Obama Supporter....like they were when attacking Birthers...
he also hired Sally Kohn, or is it Khon, but anyway she worked for media matters, is a homosexual activist, keeps shep smith who is nothing but a drama queen and then there is Geraldo, the man who makes his stories up as if he were in battle
not watched Smith for years,.
He and Geraldo are drama queens, can’t stand them and how they stayed on air is stunning.
Ailes is not a conservative, is just a liberal who hates taxes which would explain his attacks on Sarah, hiring homosexual activists and keeping drama queens and I seem to remember a certain owner of a media outlet bugging other peoples phones to get news in the UK
Ailes also doesn’t know the real story of the McCarthy era, or he would not have defamed Joe McCarthy in this little letter.
Oddly, Nikita Khrushchev and Joe McCarthy were BOTH right! It’s Amerika now.
