Past Book Sales Show Apathy Rules When It Comes to Roger Ailes | Mediaite: "So why do so few people—even those fair-weather fans that watch football occasionally but not religiously—know who John Fox is? He did take a team (Carolina) to a Super Bowl once and has enjoyed relative success in a parody-stricken NFL.
Because, at least on Sunday, everyone will be tuning in to see Peyton Manning and the high-flying Broncos host Philip Rivers and the red-hot Chargers. And that’s the point: Nobody cares about John Fox when Peyton is the true face of the franchise.
Same theory applies to Roger Ailes…at least to those fortunate enough to be living outside the media bubble.
Over the years, there have been plenty of books targeting the chairman and CEO of Fox News, an effort Ailes describes as a “cottage industry.” What’s true and what isn’t in any of these portrayals is truly in the mind of the reader. People will believe what they want to believe. And since most of the anecdotes are based on anonymous sources, the only person who really knows the truth is Ailes himself."
