Palin Upset Fox News Head by Ignoring His Advice

March 14, 2011

Sarah Palin often touts her propensity for “going rogue” as her biggest asset, but it may prove to be a big liability.

Before she made what is considered one of her biggest gaffes to date—accusing the media of participating in a “blood libel” against her in the wake of the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords—Palin sought the advice of Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, New York Magazine reports. Pundits had accused her of using violent imagery that created a dangerous political environment and Palin wanted to respond.

"Lie low," Ailes reportedly advised. “There’s no need to inject yourself into the story.” But Palin took to Facebook anyway, posting a video that quickly went viral for all the wrong reasons and upsetting the man whose company pays her $1 million annual salary.
