Ailes to Esquire: 'I know what you're going to write about me'

"I can pretty much pick the words for you," Fox News chief Roger Ailes tells Tom Junod. "Paranoid, right-wing, fat. I love that. I'm the only guy in America who's fat." Junod's response: "You're not the only fat man in America. And we're not going to call you fat, either. Or bald. Or old. First of all, Esquire is completely unbiased, and beholden to no agendas. Second, we're not going to call you any names."
