    Rolling Stone: Roger Ailes' Bomb Proof Office Protects Him From 'Those Gays' | TPMMuckraker

    Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes is big on security. And as he sees it, according a report in Rolling Stone, the two biggest threats to his personal well-being are al-Qaeda terrorists and "those gays."

    Tim Dickinson reports for Rolling Stone:

    Murdoch installed ailes in the corner office on Fox's second floor at 1211 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan. The location made Ailes queasy: It was close to the street, and he lived in fear that gay activists would try to attack him in retaliation over his hostility to gay rights. (In 1989, Ailes had broken up a protest of a Rudy Giuliani speech by gay activists, grabbing demonstrator by the throat and shoving him out the door.) Barricading himself behind a massive mahogany desk, Ailes insisted on having "bombproof glass" installed in the windows - even going so far as to personally inspect samples of high-tech plexiglass, as though he were picking out new carpet. Looking down on the street below, he expressed his fears to Cooper, the editor he had tasked with up-armoring his office. "They'll be down there protesting," Ailes said. "Those gays."

    You mean according to a report in (unbiased?) Rolling Stone? Yeah right. Let'see, does George Soros hire security? You bet your ass-ets he does. Does his bomb proof office protect him from "those Nuns". See? you can create an anecdote about anyone. I remember the time Ted Kennedy's bodyguard tried to enter the senate office building armed with automatic weapons. More people died in Ted Kennedy's car than in Roger Ailes "bomb proof office".

    unless someone starts bombing him over this article, i doubt it's going to happen. I could be wrong though.
