The Crazy At Fox News Starts At The Top

By

Few people have been able to infiltrate Fox News' Kremlin-like gates of secrecy to report anything about the right-wing message machine's inner workings, but New York magazine's Gabriel Sherman has somehow managed to do so, first last year with <a href="http://nymag.com/news/media/64305/">a lengthy profile of News Corp honcho Rupert Murdoch</a>, and <a href="http://nymag.com/news/media/roger-ailes-fox-news-2011-5/">again this week with a massive piece on how Roger Ailes</a> -- the Jabba the Hut-looking former Republican media strategist who created Fox News and still rules over it with an iron fist -- and Fox News are destroying the Republican party.
