Roger Ailes Cancels Paper Subscription Out of Spite

Apparently Roger Ailes will stick it to his critics in any way possible. In a post on Daily Intel, Gabriel Sherman — who has been working on a book on Ailes — writes that Ailes is dealing with a newspaper duel upstate. Ailes and his wife own the Putnam County News and Recorder and with a rival paper launching, things have been a bit testy.

So much so that Sherman has seen his subscription to the News and Recorder cancelled:

This week, I learned that my PCN&R subscription had been canceled. When I called the paper to ask about it, [its editor, Doug] Cunningham told me that because of my pending book on Roger Ailes and Fox News, ‘we don’t desire to have a relationship with you.’

Well done, Ailes. That’ll teach people to cross you.
