From Jill Lepore's profile of Fox newsman Roger Ailes in the current New Yorker:
Ailes was born in Warren, Ohio, in 1940. He has hemophilia, which didn't stop his father from beating him with an electrical cord. A story Ailes has told -- "his Rosebud story," according to Stephen Rosenfeld, who worked with Ailes in the 1970s -- is about a lesson he learned in his bedroom as a boy. His father, holding out his arms, told him to jump off the top bunk and then deliberately failed to catch him, saying "Don't ever trust anybody."
