Why is This Man Smiling?

Ailes_8_20.jpgFox News founder and chairman Roger Ailes nearly doubled his salary last year. Silicon Alley insider’s Peter Kafka, reports, “Ailes earned $19.9 million in the last 12 months — nearly double the amount he earned the year before.”

What did he do to earn that? Primarily, he ran Fox News, which is still crushing the competition. In July, FNC was drawing an average of 1.45 million viewers per day, while CNN could only muster 809,000. That performance alone netted Ailes a $4.5 million bonus.
