|| By FITSNEWS || Fox News chairman Roger Ailes threatened to “go to war” with GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump if the billionaire executive didn’t tone down his criticism of network anchor Megyn Kelly.

“We can resolve this now,” Ailes told Trump during a terse phone call this week, according to CNN, “or we can go to war.”

Hold up … didn’t Fox News (led by Kelly) effectively declare war on Trump’s insurgent candidacy during last week’s “Republican” presidential debate in Cleveland?

Yes it did.  Of course that declaration appears to be part of a deliberate effort by Ailes to steer the “conservative” network closer to the mushy middle of the deteriorating cable news market.

Ailes’ logic?  Conservatives have nowhere else to go …

Ironically, Fox’s debate drew an audience three times as large as the biggest primary debate from 2012 – all thanks to Trump.

Translation? Your enemy is driving your audience, Ailes …
