On Wednesday, Fox News chairman Roger Ailes received the $250,000 Bradley Prize. The Bradley Foundation awards the prize to “individuals of extraordinary talent and dedication who have made contributions of excellence in areas consistent with The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation’s mission.”
In a move that clearly embodies the evil of “Faux News,” Ailes announced he would match the $250,000 prize and donate it to a charity for senior citizens.
Ailes’ knocked it out of the park with an acceptance speech that touched on Kermit Gosnell, the Benghazi terror attack and other important stories he said other networks won’t cover the way Fox does.
Here’s a taste of his speech:
The Fox News Channel just finished its 137th consecutive month in first place in cable news, almost 12 years. The top 13 programs in cable news are all on the Fox News Channel. One reason is: We cover news but we also cover stories we know others will not. Like the abortion doctor in Philadelphia, who was actually killing babies after they were born. We covered Benghazi when four Americans were killed, even though no other network would touch the story. It’s an important story because it involves two hundred years of our military ethos, which is: If we ask you to go out in the middle of the night and risk your life for America, we promise that we will backstop you. And, try to get you out if it is humanly possible. In Benghazi we did not do that.
I have come to the conclusion that even I don’t care what the president of the United States was doing that night. However, I would like to know what the commander in chief was doing that night.

Ailes is getting rave reviews for his “killer speech.”
