Roger Ailes: You Got Your Orders People!

President Barack Obama has an enemy. A cable news network that is watched by nearly 4 million viewers.

A network who views, the president, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden as the enemy.

A network created by an Australian born media mogul and a former Republican strategist. Their claims of the other cable news networks being bias towards conservative causes proved to be a cash cow for this network. The network mocks the other networks for being in the tank for President Barack Obama. But who are they in the tank for in the 2012 U.S. Presidential Elections?

The number of programs on this network include many conservative agitators who spend most of their time going after the president over controversies that never existed. They allow a conservative agitator go uninterrupted while shouting down either a liberal agitator who undermines the argument. A person who comes off as a moderate is considered a liberal in the mind of a conservative agitator on this network.

Liberals complain that this cable news network comes off as the propaganda arm of the Republican Party.

This claim is denied over and over again by those who produce, host and report on this network.

So what's the new controversy that caught the attention of us here at Journal de la Reyna?

Roger Ailes, the chief.
Those three guys who sit on the couch for a morning opinion based news program ran a video that carries over 4 minutes of President Barack Obama and his handling of the economy. Of course, this video comes off as an attack against the president and many journalists claim the network ran a political ad for the Mitt Romney presidential campaign.

What is becoming apparent that the network is totally in the tank for Mitt Romney is the network's hardline stance on President Barack Obama.

The network spends a portion of its programs rehashing arguments over the president's birth certificate, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, and the repeated claims of the president being a "socialist".

The network obsesses over polls that favor any Republican candidates.

According to the New York Times, the network portrayed President Obama’s tenure as a series of failed promises. The video had most of the hallmarks of a campaign attack ad, except that it was produced and paid for by a news network rather than a candidate or a political action committee.

A blogger on the conservative Web site Hot Air wrote of the video on Wednesday afternoon, “It makes a pretty powerful argument against another four years of Barack Obama, but that shouldn’t be the job of news-reporting organizations, even when we like the message.”

David Zurawik, a television critic for The Baltimore Sun, wrote, “Even I am shocked by how blatantly [the network] is throwing off any pretense of being a journalistic entity with videos like this.”

Roger Ailes as keenly interested in the content of “programs,” which has an agenda-setting function since it starts off the network’s day of programming.

The people said Ailes regularly contributed talking points and phoned in ideas for the show, sometimes when it was on the air between 6 and 9 a.m. on weekdays.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of what they called possible retaliation by the network.

The network executives have publicly ridiculed employees in the past.

Versions of the video were taken off of the network’s Web sites Wednesday afternoon. The one above appears courtesy of YouTube.
