No, Roger Ailes, Gawker is not a pornographic website. It's that site which, you know, broke the story about how your network's biggest star, Bill O'Reilly, "tried to get his wife's boyfriend investigated by the cops," or more recently, ran that failed mole experiment at Fox.
Apr 12, 2012 8:39AM ET

The National Organization for Marriage sounded like a group of cogent human beings ashamed of their stance on gay marriage and playing on fear mongering and racial divide to get their point across this morning. They can thank their hacker for that.
