Check this (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/02/us/politics/02FOX.html?pagewanted=all).

"Mr. Ailes was the media consultant to Mr. Giulianiís first mayoral campaign in 1989. Mr. Giuliani, as mayor, officiated at Mr. Ailesís wedding and intervened on his behalf when Mr. Ailesís company, Fox News Channel, was blocked from securing a cable station in the city."

"This year, they were tablemates at the White House correspondents dinner, which Mr. Giuliani attended as a guest of Foxís parent company, the News Corporation.

Now these allies and friends find themselves on largely uncharted political turf. Mr. Giuliani, 63, is a leading Republican candidate for president. Mr. Ailes, 67, is head of Fox News, the pre-eminent media outlet for likely voters in a Republican primary."

"So far this year, one political journal found, Mr. Giuliani has logged more time on Fox interview programs than any other candidate. Most of the time has been spent with Sean Hannity..."

"In 2002, Mr. Ailes was criticized for having offered advice to President Bush months before in the form of a note that suggested how to respond to the 9/11 attacks. Critics contended that Mr. Ailes, as a news executive, had crossed a line. "

"For much of his career, Mr. Ailesís job was to counsel politicians. He worked as the media consultant to three presidents: Richard M. Nixon, Mr. Reagan and the current presidentís father, George H. W. Bush."

That Clinton number can't be correct though... it seems totally improbable she only got 5 more minutes than Dr. Paul

If it doesn't include "appearances in news reports," they're missing 90 percent of the data.

she got twice as much time according to the "total minutes"

they didn't interview her much, but her face was everywhere. i didn't see ron paul's face everywhere.
