Rupert Murdoch told Roger Ailes: Tilt the election 'to anyone but Trump,' 'even Hillary'

Via Billy

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch wanted to tilt the U.S. presidential election to any candidate but President Trump, according to a longtime friend of former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

"Murdoch instructed Ailes to tilt to anyone but Trump, Ailes confided to me before he was fired, even Hillary. (Ailes, for his part, characterized Murdoch's periodic efforts at interference as similar to Nixon's instructions to bomb this or that country — best ignored.)," Michael Wolff wrote in a column Thursday, one day before the one-year anniversary of Ailes' resignation.

The former writer for USA Today and the UK edition of GQ insisted Ailes' unapologetic support for President Trump ultimately led to his firing by the parent company's Murdoch family.
