New book gives reason Roger Ailes doesn't donate to Muslim charities


Roger Ailes: Off Camera, a biography of the Fox News CEO, publishes tomorrow. Liberal media watchdog Media Matters for America obtained an advance copy, according to Politico, which released the following excerpt...

“‘I've been kicked out of every damn church I've ever belonged to,’ says Roger Ailes. It is a buccaneer's boast, meant to convey a hard-core irreverence. Ailes is not, by any means, a conventional born-again Christian of the Mike Huckabee variety, let alone Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell. He wouldn't use the word himself, but he is ecumenical. He donates considerable sums each year to a small Protestant church near his home in Garrison, although he is not on its membership rolls. He donates upward of 10 percent of his net income to charities, many of them religious, including an annual fifty grand to the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York and another fifty grand to Catholic charities. He told me he'd be glad to give to Muslim charities, too, ‘if they disarm.'

Politico also pulled a bit from the bio wherein Ailes comments on Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) who attended the launch of a Media Matters anti-Ailes book in February 2012. Read here.
