On CNN's Reliable Sources on Sunday, host Brian Stelter touted the scary influence of Fox News: "Will those two guys, Fox News president Roger Ailes and his boss, Rupert Murdoch, be picking your next president? It may sound ridiculous, it may sound like some liberal conspiracy theory, but there's no disputing that they have real power in the GOP primaries."

Stelter brought on liberal Ailes-trashing biographer Gabriel Sherman to insist "without a question in the Republican primary, Roger Ailes controls the largest bloc of reliable Republican voters."
