"How Roger Ailes Won in Business, But Lost in Politics" By Ujala Sehgal May 22, 2011

A Republican close to Ailes said that Ailes “thinks Palin is an idiot. He thinks she’s stupid. People like Sarah Palin haven’t elevated the conservative movement.”

The turning point for Ailes was the Tucson shooting. Ailes told Palin not to respond when the media pounced on her rhetoric, but to "lie low." Nonetheless, Palin responded with her infamous "blood-libel" speech.

At that point, Ailes recognized that "a Fox brand defined by Palin could be politically vulnerable."
