Ailes, who directed George Bush’s presidential campaign, acted as moderator of the panel. The panel discussed whether the media had fairly handled stories including: Gary Hart’s relationship with Donna Rice, Jesse Jackson’s alleged womanizing, Geraldine Ferraro’s finances, and the Dukakis campaign’s exposing of Joe Biden’s plagiarism.
