Roger Ailes: Soledad O'Brien Was 'Named After A Prison'


Roger Ailes made a jaw-dropping comment about CNN's Soledad O'Brien during a college lecture on Thursday night.

The Fox News chief was speaking to journalism students at the University of North Carolina. In the question-and-answer segment of the talk, he referred to O'Brien as "that girl that's named after a prison."

Ailes was referring to the Soledad Correctional Facility in Monterey County, California. CNN responded to the remark on Friday. An insider told The Huffington Post, "Roger is wrong. Soledad is named after the Virgin Mary, 'Maria de la Soledad.' It's a name her parents gave her in part because they met at Daily Mass."

17. I remember when ignorance was embarrassing

and ignorance on this scale would have gotten someone on the air fired.

I long for those days once again. I despair that they will never come and the stupid will reign over our airwaves for eternity.
