It’s Unlikely Pat Caddell Will Be Picking Up A Copy of Gabe Sherman’s Roger Ailes Book

In a lengthy op-ed on FoxNews.com, Pat Caddell, the Democratic pollster and Fox News contributor, relives a moment of 1970s presidential history and in the end calls out New York magazine’s Gabe Sherman. Sherman, who’s got a book coming out about Roger Ailes and Fox News — done without Ailes’ cooperation — had reached out to Caddell last week about a claim Caddell made in an earlier column.

We won’t get into details. You can read the op-ed yourself. In short, Caddell doesn’t think much of Sherman and he sure wasn’t happey Sherman reached out to him in the first place.

Frankly, Mr. Sherman, you are an embarrassment to the journalistic trade, and if your book is in the same vein, it will be an embarrassment to your publisher and a disservice to the reading public.

Please take my advice: Grow up, get a life, and most of all, leave me alone. Got that?
