“We knew that a fair and balanced news channel could succeed, as long as no views were rejected and conservative views were allowed to be heard,” – Roger Ailes, propagandist with a blacklist of forbidden guests, whose actual names are even airbrushed out of screen shots.

Only 34 percent identified George Washington as the American general at the Battle of Yorktown. Thirty-four percent thought it was Ulysses S. Grant.
