Roger Ailes Accused of Asking Judith Regan to Lie to Feds

Can’t wait to see how Fox News spins this:  Judith Regan, formerly with Harper Collins, supposedly has a recording of Roger Ailes telling her to lie to federal investigators back in 2006 about her affair with then city police commissioner Bernie Kerik,  in order to protect Rudy Giuliani and his bid to become president. Imagine, someone at Fox News trying to hide the truth!

Regan, who was fired from Harper Collins – which is owned by News Corporation -  subsequently sued them and received a big settlement. A settlement that might have been sped up by Ailes’ knowledge of the recorded conversation.

The infamous phone call is only now becoming public because of a separate wrongful termination lawsuit filed against Regan by the very lawyers that pursued the charges against News Corp. years ago.

And get this: That call would still be hidden from everyone, but someone forgot to file the proper paperwork with the State Court, so the affidavits with Ailes’ name are now completely out there.

Of course, News Corp.’s Spokesperson Teri Everett told The Times that the company has a letter from Regan, “stating that Mr. Ailes did not intend to influence her with respect to a government investigation.”

If that’s the case then this will die quickly, but if not, things are about to get intense. The mastermind of Fox News, Roger Ailes, and Rudy Giuliani, a man who probably still has presidential aspirations, might both be destroyed by a missed task on someone’s to do list.
