Fox President Called Obama Lazy

Detailed in new book


Fox News president Roger Ailes describes President Obama in a new book as "lazy."

While discussing the flap over Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen's statement last year that Ann Romney had "never worked a day in her life,"  Ailes told the book's author that the same argument could be applied to Obama.

"Obama's the one who never worked a day in his life. He never earned a penny that wasn't public money," Ailes says in an excerpt of the book, by Zev Chafets, that has been posted to Vanity Fair's Web site. "How many fund-raisers does he attend every week? How often does he play basketball and golf? I wish I had that kind of time. He's lazy, but the media won't report that."
