That's a tough one. Ailes poisoned more people; Brady was more heinous to defenseless children. Maybe they should both spend some time in Hell in that room with Walter O'Malley and Robert Moses and their newly sharpened pica rulers.

You'll have seem my piece about Brady and Hindley so I'd go with him as Ailes isn't familiar to me.

Started Fox News here in the US. Brady was horrible, but Ailes worked a few orders of magnitude larger in scale.

Well... posit that a person *may* be so fucked up that they don't perceive right and wrong as we do. Not saying that I'm sure of this, but posit it. A serial sexual-assailant murderer would therefore be relatively likely to be such a person. If that is the case, I'd view Ailes to be worse, were he not similarly afflicted.

In terms of gross damage done, I suspect Ailes wins that too - on multiple levels.

In terms of malicious desire to cause harm, I assume Brady wins. The thing is, malice is the basis of relatively little evil in the world, IMHO, and it tends to be far more easy to guard against actual malice than against reasonable-sounding desires, and depraved indifference.

I can't rule out Brady - he's definitely in the running, depending on the metric. But Ailes could take home the prize in several categories.
