Is Roger Ailes a Volvo Driving, Brie Eating, Berkinstock Wearing Cut and Runner?

Reported by Melanie - July 25, 2006 -

On June 20, 2005, Forbes magazine reported that Roger Ailes, the president of Fox News, was determined to launch a business news channel, "in the first half of 2006."

It didn't happen.

On June 20, 2006 (June 20 seems to be a special day for ol' Roger), Reuters reported that Ailes said he would launch a "business news" channel "next year."

Today (July 24, 2006), Broadcast & Cable has the most recent gossip about what Ailes is, or isn't, thinking: “When we have the distribution in place, we will go ahead. We are still looking at it. I have developed a business plan; we haven’t pushed it any further than that.”

Sounds like the prelude to a cut and run to me. Then again, maybe we're in for a flip-flop.
