Warning: I'm about to violate the code of ethics for political writers. I'm coming to the defense of a highly paid political operative who plots television strategy for candidates. The man in question is none other than Roger Ailes, the Republican strategist who came to fame two decades ago as the shrewd media master of Richard Nixon's comeback. As portrayed in Joe McGinnis' book The Selling of the President, 1968, Ailes was the sharp-tongued operative behind the warmer, less frightening "new Nixon.

YOU DON'T make it all the way through the Miss America competition and Stanford University without a bit of toughness. That grit will be put to the test in Gretchen Carlson 's lawsuit against Fox News CEO Roger Ailes , one of the most powerful men in broadcasting. Carlson sued Ailes on Wednesday in Bergen County, N.J., where Ailes owns a home, claiming she was fired after she refused his sexual advances and complained about harassment in the workplace. Carlson, the 1989 Miss America and former host of Fox & Friends , had worked at Fox News for 11 years.

The Whitman campaign yesterday apologized to former GOP media guru Roger Ailes for incorrectly linking him to an infamous 1988 TV ad that critics say pandered to racial fears. The apology came one day after Ailes issued a blistering statement that labeled GOP gubernatorial candidate Christine Todd Whitman "slick Christie" and questioned her integrity for saying that he had been responsible for the Willie Horton commercial. The campaign issued a statement yesterday that said there was "no intention to disparage Mr. Ailes or his reputation" and apologized for any confusion over Whitman's remarks.

Dear Jack: You might be amused to learn you were required reading in my political science class at Fairfield University. Before you start thinking royalties, though, I must add that the text wasn't "by" you but about you. I'm referring to Joe McGinniss's classic, "The Selling of the President, 1968," where he described your heated television confrontation with Richard M. Nixon during that unworthy's presidential campaign of the same year....

TRENTON - The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey said Monday that it would likely drop a lawsuit filed earlier in the day against Gov. Christie seeking records that confirm he met with the head of Fox News last year. The ACLU filed the lawsuit Monday on behalf of a reporter for Gawker Entertainment L.L.C., saying the governor's office had issued a blanket refusal to release any records pertaining to the meeting. After the governor's office confirmed the September 2010 meeting, the ACLU relented.

'FOX NEWS ALERT" . . . there is bias in the news media. Bob Woodward of Watergate fame has written a new book called "Bush at War. " It's an inside account of the Bush administration in the first 100 days after 9/11, a fascinating look at the White House behind closed doors in a perilous time. One subject covered in the book is generating controversy. Woodward reports that Fox News honcho Roger Ailes sent written political advice to the president in the aftermath of 9/11. To Fox's critics, who love the flap, this is confirmation of a slant in the network's coverage.

WASHINGTON - Fox News officials reacted with outrage last week to the revelation that the Justice Department had closely scrutinized the newsgathering practices of its reporter James Rosen as part of a leak investigation. But federal prosecutors sent an e-mail to Rosen and a certified letter to Fox's parent company in 2010 notifying them that the government had seized phone records for five numbers associated with the network, according to a law enforcement official. "The government provided notification of those subpoenas nearly three years ago by certified mail, facsimile, and e-mail," said the law enforcement official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing case.

At the risk of riling the liberal netroots, I question the Democratic Party's decision Friday to stiff Fox News by canceling a Fox-hosted presidential candidates debate slated for August in Nevada. The Nevada Democrats, led by home-state Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, had originally agreed to let Fox News cohost and broadcast the event; they saw it as a way for the '08 presidential candidates to reach out to red-state voters.

CNN commentator Robert Novak was indefinitely suspended by the network yesterday after he cussed and walked off the set of Inside Politics in response to needling by Democratic operative and fellow commentator James Carville. When Novak didn't come back, CNN correspondent Ed Henry said he'd been about to ask Novak about his role in the investigation of the leak of a CIA officer's identity. Novak and Carville were debating the Florida Senate campaign of would-be GOP candidate Katherine Harris when Novak suggested she might win as an "anti-establishment candidate.
