Some think FNC exec can fix what Ailes US


The leadership of Roger Ailes has propelled Fox News Channel to the top of the heap in the 24-hour cable news derby – and some of his friends believe he can do the same thing for the Republican Party by placing his name on top of the ticket in 2012.

Republican pollster Frank Luntz in particular believes he could be a force, saying nobody knows how to frame an issue, and more importantly, how to win – than Ailes.

However, the 69-year-old Ailes isn’t biting – among other things, he said if he won a presidential election he couldn’t afford to take the pay cut.
