Does Roger Ailes Think Sarah Palin's "An Idiot?"

A profile of Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes appearing in New York magazine quotes an unnamed "Republican close to Ailes" as saying that he thinks Sarah Palin, whom he hired as a regular commentator on Fox News, is "an idiot" who is harming the conservative cause. So far, Ailes himself has not commented on the New York article, but in a statement to the New York Times , Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming at Fox News, responded "I know for a fact that Roger Ailes admires and respects Sarah Palin and thinks she is smart. He also believes many members of the left-wing media are extremely terrified and threatened by her. ... As for the 'Republican close to Ailes' for which the incorrect Palin quote is attributed ... when Roger figures out who that is, I guarantee you he or she will no longer be 'close to Ailes.'"
