I'm a little shocked that you posted Ailes' remarks without comment, because there is so much going on in that single comment that undermines a lot of what he's intending to accomplish. The most notable is that by stating "the other side" he's explicitly admitting that his entire network is on the side of Palin/GOP and the right in general. Further: "Democrat Party"?? Forgive me if I find Ailes' call for sanity to be a little weak and disingenuous.

"Other side"? It’s telling that even the CEO doesn’t try to maintain the pretense of fairness and balance, his channel’s trademark.
