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. The panel also discussed ethics on the side of political consultants, especially negative advertising. Conservative columnist John Lofton acted as a combative foil throughout the discussion. close
