Roger Ailes and Jon Meacham Had Lunch Together at Michael’s


This is curious: Former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham, who is now an editor at Random House, was spotted having lunch at Michael’s yesterday with Roger Ailes. He’s probably not fishing for a book deal; though Meacham is assigned to big gets, presumably any Ailes tome would be published by News Corp. holding HarperCollins so long as he still runs Fox News. Maybe there’s some sort of deal in the works the other way ‘round? Or maybe it’s just another Manhattan man date. [FishbowlNY/Mediabistro]
