Roger Ailes criticizes New York Times, AP during Ohio University talk

Fox News CEO Roger Ailes made headlines when he told UNC journalism students to "change your major" and he's looking to make them again with Monday night's talk at Ohio University. "One thing that qualifies me to run a journalism organization is the fact that I don't have a journalism degree," he said. The Ohio graduate also criticized New York Times reporters, saying "They are a bunch of lying scum". || Update: Howard Kurtz reports that "A senior Fox News executive says Ailes realizes he went too far and regrets using that language. In fact, the executive says, Ailes believes the Times has been fair to Fox under its new executive editor, Jill Abramson. Ailes has gotten to know Abramson over the years and respects her as an editor." || Highlights from Ailes' talk follow.
