Roger Ailes Calls Gawker a Porn Site, Reiterates That He’s Rich

You didn’t think we’d get out of the Gawker Fox News Mole story without a comment from Roger Ailes, did you? We certainly hope not. While addressing the media during The Hollywood Reporter’s “New York Issue” event, Ailes had a hilarious take on the whole thing:

What is Gawker? Is that that pornographic website? I don’t care if they have a mole beause we aren’t doing anything wrong, so it doesn’t matter… they hate me because I make money and I do it legitimately and they don’t like my politics, and that’s America.

Someone needs to remember to put “They hate me because I make money and I do it legitimately and they don’t like my politics, and that’s America,” on Ailes’ tombstone one day, because that is gold.
