Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes is responding to a shot Chris Matthews fired his way on his show last night.
After playing a clip of Sarah Palin discussing Newt Gingrich on Fox News, Matthews said, “This is so pathetic, watching her on television. It’s so pathetic that Roger Ailes has put her on television.”
This morning, Ailes quips, “People tell me all the time it was truly pathetic that I was the one who gave Chris Matthews his start on television.”
Ailes gave Matthews his first show “Politics with Chris Matthews” in 1994 on the old America’s Talking network.
