Former Roger Ailes Confidant Dan Cooper is Ready to Spill Blood
Fired from Fox News, Cooper is unleashing a tell-all

Former Fox News architect Dan Cooper is lashing out at old bossman Roger Ailes – "a man I knew to be a schoolyard bully" – in a scathing … website post. In what's said to be the beginnings of a book, Naked Launch, Cooper's item story-tells how he's gone from member of the inner circle in the 1990s to corporate outsider, and now is as intent on destroying Ailes as Ailes is on destroying Cooper. Touche!

Back in '97, already ousted from Fox News, Cooper gave an "on background only" interview to David Brock for New York magazine about Ailes. And before the cover story even hit newsstands, Ailes had gotten wind of it, told Cooper's agent Richard Liebner (of N.S. Bienstock), and told him to drop Cooper as a client or none of Liebner's roster would ever be welcome at FNC. BECAUSE ROGER AILES KNOWS ALL! Oh, and he held a grudge against Cooper.

So Cooper left Liebner, and left New York for Los Angeles. And now he's ready to tell all. God, what we'd give for dramatic music right about now.

To be sure, the anecdotes offered are perhaps what you'd (mostly) expect about Ailes: "boys club" meetings ("How about those bazookas on that Indian girl, or whatever the hell she is!" … "Pussy masala on the menu today?"), making fun of Rupert Murdoch, admissions that he's been diagnosed as paranoid.

And what Cooper writes about FNC's operations could've been entirely fictionalized — and still entirely believable. But isn't it much sexier when it's relayed by a former insider? That, and Cooper doesn't exactly reveal why Ailes "reorganized" things to have him bounced from the company. But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

The best thing that ever happened to Roger Ailes was 9/11. Even Roger Ailes, Machiavellian as he was, couldn't have dreamed up anybody as fabulous as Usama bin Laden (Allah told Roger to spell it Usama), or UBL, as Fox News called him. Because somebody up there, or down there, loved Roger, 9/11 happened on his watch. It gave him the opportunity to throw gasoline on the bonfire he had already set to scorch and destroy traditional liberal values. For those of you under 50, the United States once had liberal values. There was even such a thing as liberal Republicans. That's enough of that, because I know talking about the Devil's spawn and blond big-boobed temptresses is far more interesting. But hang on a bit.

Cooper's full version goes live later today (complete with sing-songy story about the love of his life, Gina). And the book? Well, anything more interesting than Tom Brokaw's gets a rave review from us.

    In reading the whole version, I would be amazed if only 1% of that incoherent diatribe were even remotely true. It would seem that Dan missed the label on his medication bottle about mixing it with alcohol…

    No. 2 hendrixwasaparatrooper says:

    I could follow along. Try reading the beat authors.

    Ailes is going to be really upset. Interesting point is how Fox changed America and news has has not been the same since. Also how fox is a not interested in journalism rather a political campaign who is interested in indoctrination.

    This is a weatherman telling us which way the wind blows. Also mentioned black ops being a part of the fox infrustructure. Can you tell me the difference between white, grey, and black ops?

    Wonder if the admiral had a tiny crack in his skull and a little truth seeped through if his whole head would explode?

    Commenters 1 and 2 are pathetic shills for a bygone dismissed outlook on society. Yeah, coz the Bush administration is so widely supported by everyone. Pathetic shills.

    Murdoch is a neocon, and how woderful 9/11 was for him. Now the Bushies could proceed with their middle east makeover. I can well imagine Ailes laughing with every terror alert. Hey nothing like doing psy-ops on already hurting Americans. Murdoch should go back to Austraila or Istrael. He's not even American. And Ailes can go down in flames with Mr. 9/11 himselfGuilliani

    No. 7 Psych Nurse says:

    Whether they like it or not, many of those under 50 are enjoying quite a few of those liberal values today–like paid vacations, holidays, health care, decent wages, the 40 hour work week, lunch breaks, with pensions, employer matched 401's, social security and medicare waiting in the wings. How many neocons are willing to give up all those liberal values?

    Funny how Ailes doesn't like it getting out that the Saudi Prince that Ailes' good friend Rudy -

    (New Yorkers reading and posting here will remember that Roger headed Rudy's Mayorial Election Committee back in 1988, thus the reason Rudy gets the most coverage out of all the GOP hopefuls over at Faux)

    - "stood up to and didn't take his money" owns a percentage of Faux News.

    Talk about a greasy-n-swarmy-cheap-n-common-Neo-Con-GOP-Conservative-Clusterf*ck…yuck.

    No. 9 Lived there for 3 years myself says:

    I worked with and directly for Roger Ailes in the late '90's. Everything you see and imagine would be true- his misogynistic blather (pussies, boobies, prostitutes, etc.) is all true. I sat at many a small dinner table with him listening and laughing at his jokes. He's also the MOST paranoid person I've ever worked with, which makes for always interesting times- but you are always a step away from the chopping block. Play along with him as your daddy and you're A OK. But I can tell you if you're a woman, be a submissive pretty lady and easy on the eyes and you'll be invited to dinner too.

    The following article ( ) essentially blames FOX for the decline of America's mainstream media, saying that the tipping point for America's media was Apr. 5, 1987, the premiere of "Married With Children" on FOX.

    No. 11 Doug Watts says:

    I've worked with Roger Ailes, too. And yeah, he's tough.Very. But, he's also fucking brilliant, indefatigable, and seriously patriotic. Whiners can question his temperament all they want, but his brains, success and love for America are simply not debatable.

    No. 12 Gaia sighs... says:

    No one is debating Ailes brains, success and love for America. After all, many psychopaths exhibit the same qualities.

    No. 13 Melioner56 says:

    Do not take Kamagra if you are taking any nitrate-based drug, including nitroglycerin patches (Nitro-Dur, Transderm-Nitro), nitroglycerin ointment (Nitro-Bid, Nitrol), nitroglycerin pills (Nitro-Bid, Nitrostat), and isosorbide pills (Dilatrate-SR, Isordil, Sorbitrate). Combining Kamagra with these drugs can cause a severe drop in blood pressure.
    If you have heart problems severe enough to make sexual activity a danger, you should avoid using Kamagra. Use it cautiously if you've had a heart attack, stroke, or life-threatening heart irregularities within the past 6 months. Be equally cautious if you have severe high or low blood pressure, heart failure, or unstable angina.
    If you take Kamagra and develop cardiac symptoms (for example, dizziness, nausea, and chest pain) during sexual activity, do not continue. Alert your doctor to the problem as soon as possible.
    If you have a condition that might result in long-lasting erections, such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma (a disease of the bone marrow), or leukemia, use Kamagra with caution. Also use cautiously if you have a genital problem or deformity such as Peyronie's disease. If an erection lasts more than 4 hours, seek treatment immediately. Permanent damage and impotence could result.
    If you have a bleeding disorder, a stomach ulcer, or the inherited eye condition known as retinitis pigmentosa, use Kamagra with caution. Its safety under these circumstances has not yet been studied.
