Well, here’s some news the left-wing media will have a field day with.
The Radio and Television News Directors Foundation is set to honor Fox News chief Roger Ailes along with Philip Balboni of New England Cable News and a pair of journalists — Kimberly Dozier of CBS News and Bob Woodruff of ABC News — wounded in Iraq for “their work on behalf of press freedom” at the 17th Annual First Amendment Awards Dinner on March 8 in Washington.
Ailes will receive the 2006 First Amendment Leadership Award. Past recipients include Katharine Graham, Don Hewitt and Ted Turner of Fox rival CNN.
Does Ailes belong with this group?
Now that we’ve reported, you can decide.
