Fox News head Roger Ailes wrote a blurb for MSNBC star Rachel Maddow’s new book, Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power.
Ailes wrote in part: “People who like Rachel will love the book. People who don’t will get angry, but aggressive debate is good for America. Drift is a book worth reading.”
I score this one for Ailes. He knows his blurb won’t boost book sales among his Fox true believers, let alone change any minds, but he also knows that Rachel is a nice person, who will now feel that she owes him one. Roger won’t hesitate to collect when the moment is right.
