Exclusive -- Roger Ailes: CNN's 'Mediocre... Bill Weir Attacking Me to Get Noticed'

In an exclusive to Breitbart News, Fox News chief Roger Ailes shot back at CNN after the low-rated network interviewed Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and tried to mock Fox for "abandoning" him.

CNN anchor Bill Weir, a new hire at the third-place network, said to Bundy, “How does it feel to be abandoned by your friends on Fox? I mean, the only reason we could get you on tonight is that, I’m guessing, they didn’t call.”

When asked for comment, Ailes referred to Weir as "Bill Weird" and said Weir "is attacking me to get noticed." Ailes added, "It's a cheesy start for a mediocre talent."
