The Ticker: Oz, Ifill, Ailes…

> Dr. Mehmet Oz was surprised this morning on Good Morning America by a man he helped after a traffic crash in Virginia Beach last week. “I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart,” said Stanley Tatum to Oz by phone. “You don’t just talk the talk, but you walk the walk.”

> As he mentioned on today’s Media Menu, FishbowlDC’s Patrick Gavin reports on “what some TV types are talking about today“: Gwen Ifill‘s rare appearance on ABC’s This Week yesterday. The regular Meet the Press guest had expressed interest, and was reported to be considered, for the moderator job.

> At the end of today’s Rush & Molloy-refereed brawl between Judith Regan and Michael Wolff, FNC CEO Roger Ailes makes a guest appearance. Wolff says Ailes called “a date” with Regan “the scariest three hours of my life,” Regan responds by saying “we went out to dinner to talk business,” and Ailes concurs: “Judith’s version is correct. It was a business dinner.”
