The Ticker: Ailes, MSNBC, Bloomberg…

> Broadcasting & Cable honored the 2008 Hall of Famers last night, including FNC Chairman Roger Ailes. “People always ask me what’s the key to success. Well here it is: It’s not enough to hire good people. You must also take credit for everything they do,” joked Ailes in his acceptance speech.

> On the first night of Keith Olbermann‘s nightly Special Campaign Comments, the MSNBC program had its highest viewership ever in the A25-54 demo (935,000).
