Roger Ailes

At THR's 35 Most Powerful People in Media event in New York City on Wednesday, FNC chief Roger Ailes had choice words for Gawker, saying: "What is Gawker? Is that that pornographic website?" The gossip site has long been a critic of his channel and recently hired an anonymous Fox employee to pen a column ripping the organization; said employee soon outed himself online after Fox News discovered his identity, and promptly fired him.
