Faux wisdom?!

Food for thought from Roger Ailes, the big cheese of the cheesy Fox News Channel:

"I think all of us over-hype the news, all the 'news alert, news alert, news alert.' The other day they had a funny news alert on CNN: Hillary supports Bill in attacking Fox, and I thought, Well, jeez, the news alert would have been if she didn't...Maybe there should be a little unilateral disarmament. If somebody had the nerve I'd let CNN go first, but all of us ought to get together and say, 'Look, let's try to make news alerts news alerts.' But nobody can afford unilateral disarmament, so we all stay in the fight, and I don't think it's necessarily to the viewer's benefit."
