No offense, but ...

Turns out Rudy Giuliani and Fox News guru Roger Ailes are old buddies. Turns out Rudy has received more air time on Fox News than any other presidential candidate.

According to a report by Russ Buettner (NYT 8/2/07), “Mr. Ailes served as the media consultant to Mr. Giuliani’s first mayoral campaign in 1989. Mr. Giuliani, as mayor, officiated at Mr. Ailes’ wedding and intervened on his behalf when Mr. Ailes’ company, Fox News Channel, was blocked from securing a cable station in the city. This year, they were tablemates at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner , which Mr. Giuliani attended as a guest of Fox’s parent company, News Corporation.”

Fox News' political editor Brit Hume denies any connection between the friendship and Rudy’s coverage.

Here’s the kicker: the NYT article said other Republican candidates are keeping an eye on the situation, "though none wanted to speak publicly for fear of offending Fox News."

And, these men want to be president of the United States? Imagine a president who wouldn't want to OFFEND Fox News!
