CNN’s Stelter: Roger Ailes Could ‘Conceivably’ Help Out Trump Now

stelterWith Roger Ailes out at Fox News, the big question now is what’s next for the media and political giant. Could he jump back into politics?

There’s been speculation about Ailes helping out Donald Trump‘s campaign now. Trump called the allegations against Ailes “totally unfounded” and, despite Trump’s feuds with Fox, they have been close for years.

CNN’s Brian Stelter said this afternoon that Ailes “conceivably could help Trump in a more open way than he has so far.” (Emphasis added.)

Though as fellow CNN media reporter Dylan Byers pointed out, the reduced role Ailes is being kept on as until 2018 may prevent that.
