Fox News CEO Roger Ailes Angry at Sarah Palin for ‘Blood Libel’ Video (Report)
He is miffed she ignored his request to ‘lie low’ after the Arizona shooting, according to a new report.
Sarah Palin angered Fox News CEO Roger Ailes after she ignored his request not to make her now-infamous “blood libel” video about the Arizona shooting involving Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
New York magazine reports that Palin complained the media were blaming her for the shooting, and when she told Ailes she wanted to respond, he told her it wasn’t a good idea.
"Lie low," he told her, according to the magazine. "’There's no need to inject yourself into the story.’"
But after she went ahead and made the video, the source said, “Roger is thinking, 'Why did you call me for advice?'"
Palin’s relationship with Ailes has since soured, according to the report.
Mika Brzezinski, an MSNBC anchor, predicted on Monday's Morning Joe that Palin may even be handed the pink slip, according to the Huffington Post.
"I think he's going to dump her actually," she said of Ailes. "He's going to hire her for the same reason that he's going to dump her. Welcome to television."
