Fox News Boss Roger Ailes sat down with the Hollywood Reporter for a long interview. It is more than likely that Ailes is trying to deflect attention away from the new book coming out that paints him a bad light.
In his interview with THR, Ailes talks about CNN boss Jeff Zucker and his plans for the network:
What do you think of Jeff Zucker saying CNN is now focused on making shows and moving away from newscasts?
I'm actually thrilled. MSNBC has [already] announced they're out of the news business. They have several different hosts, but it's always the same show: Republicans are no good. The NBC News people won't get caught dead on MSNBC. They could have a traffic accident in front of the window, and they wouldn't cover it. For CNN to also throw in the towel and announce they're out of the news business is quite interesting. That means Fox has won the cable news wars. [Zucker] had a big hit with a whale one night [the documentary Blackfish]. I guess he's going to do whales a lot. If I were Discovery, I'd be worried.
