"Our Man" (Roger Ailes)
I listened to Limbaugh's radio show today and heard part of the telephone conversation Limbaugh had with George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, and Jeb Bush. I missed the part in which Bush the Elder referred to Fox News CEO Roger Ailes as "our man Ailes." Watch the Countdown video.
Think Progress has the important part of the conversation in which the truth came out from Bush the Elder who didn't realize they were on the radio and then corrected himself:
H. W. BUSH: Do you see our man Ailes at all?
I thought their man was Sun Myung Moon.
UPDATE: I address Roger Ailes, Fox News, and Limbaugh in this post that examines the chapter on Fox News in Bernard Goldberg's book Crazies to the Left of Me, Wimps to the Right: How One Side Lost Its Mind and the Other Lost Its Nerve. Also, go to the talk radio transcripts on the left sidebar to read the transcripts of my conversations with Limbaugh.
UPDATE II: The full transcript of the conversation is on Limbaugh's web site. I thought Limbaugh would have edited the Ailes comment out of the transcript the same way he did with his transcript of his "phony soldiers" comment.
UPDATE III: I've gotten a lot of hits from keyword searches. If you really want to stick it to Ailes and Fox News, one easy and painless way is to participate in the anti-Fox News Google bomb I started. Also, here is my post on how to reach out to Fox News viewers.
