In addition to talking a bit about his lineup–and the world at large–Fox News CEO Roger Ailes also spent a good deal of time at the 21st Century Fox investor conference cracking jokes. A good deal of those came at the expense of Geraldo Rivera, whose shirtless “selfie” made waves last month.
“There are always people that will rise to the occasion when there is no occasion, but it is hard to find people will do it when there is,” Ailes said, praising Rivera, before adding “Naked pictures when you are drunk is still stupid.”
Some other quips:
“I want to prove that a fat guy can get to 100 still working,” Ailes said in response to a question about retiring from Neil Cavuto. “I would like to be on Dancing with the Stars.”
“Well Geraldo turned it down, so…” Cavuto replied.
“He doesn’t need it. He’s up there shooting pictures of himself in the middle of the night,” Ailes quipped.
