"Former Ailes confidante alleges sexist, bigoted comments."
Dan Cooper, who helped create Fox News in the 1990s, is set to tell all about his former boss, Roger Ailes. In “a long meandering unfocussed piece” posted today, Cooper describes Ailes’ fondness for “boy’s club meetings” during the launch of Fox News that were often peppered with sexist and bigoted comments. “How about those bazookas on that Indian girl, or whatever the hell she is,” Cooper recalls Ailes saying. (In fairness to Ailes, Inside Cable News warns that it’s difficult to tell how much of Cooper’s story “is real and how much of it is BS.”)
