Toning down political rhetoric

Looks like Roger Ailes is telling his camp over at FOX to take it down a notch. In the aftermath of the Tucson shooting that left six dead and fourteen wounded, including Representative Gabrielle Giffords, both sides of the political arena are up in arms. Accusations are flying left and right, things like the shooter being influenced by Tea Party rhetoric or following Palin’s orders from the crosshairs map.

Ailes, president of Fox News,  has told the “guys” at his network to “shut up, tone it down, make your argument intellectually.  You don’t have to do it with bombast. I hope the other side does that.” All this and more in an exclusive interview with the Global Grind.
