Roger Ailes On Obama’s Election: “I See This As The Alamo.” A March 6, 2009, Los Angeles Timesarticle reported that, in a meeting with former Fox News host Glenn Beck, Fox News CEO Roger Ailes declared that his network would challenge the Obama administration, reportedly saying “I see this as the Alamo.” FromThe Los Angeles Times:
Before Glenn Beck started his new show on Fox News in January, he sat down with Roger Ailes, the network’s chief executive, to make sure they were on the same page.
“I wanted to meet with Roger and tell him, ‘You may not want to put me on the air. I believe we are in dire trouble, and I will never shut up,’ ” said the conservative radio host.
But before Beck could say anything, Ailes shared a message of his own: The country faced tough times, he said, and Fox News was one of the only news outlets willing to challenge the new administration.
“I see this as the Alamo,” Ailes said, according to Beck. “If I just had somebody who was willing to sit on the other side of the camera until the last shot is fired, we’d be fine.” [Los Angeles Times, 3/6/09]
