Roger Ailes, Former Chairman and CEO of Fox News, Dead at 77

Francis Olson | 19 May, 2017, 18:13

Ailes' widow, Elizabeth Ailes, confirmed his death in a statement on the Fox News website. They said there were no signs of foul play. Yet without him, friends and foes agree, the GOP's current control of Washington and statehouses nationwide may not have been possible.

"He wasn't flawless, but Roger Ailes was my friend & I loved him", chimed in George H.W. Bush.

According to some media personalities, former Fox News Chief Roger Ailes is responsible for the rise of President Donald Trump.

Former President George H.W. Bush tweeted: "He wasn't flawless, but Roger Ailes was my friend & I loved him". To give some background information into the controversial American television executive and media consultant, and his wife, keep reading our Elizabeth Tilson wiki.

Fox News formally announced news of his passing in an on-air segment on Thursday morning. Nixon then put Ailes in charge of his television campaign for the 1968 presidential election. Even Rev. Al Sharpton - who was in many ways the opposite of everything Ailes stood for - paid tribute to him and said, "his impact on U.S. culture is undeniable".

"Was he a capable propagandist? Yes".

Paul Pierce says Celtics should trade No. 1 overall pick
Editor's note: SportsDay's Eddie Sefko recently wrote a series of columns chronicling the Mavericks' NBA draft lottery picks. Game tomorrow against a tough Cleveland team. "We're excited about the pick".

Some will mourn, some will cheer, but there is no doubt that Roger Ailes left his imprint on the Media establishment in America. It's far worse for Democrats in statehouses across the country, where they have lost more than 900 seats since 2009.

"He went out in such a sad way, but who doesn't have sins", Earhardt said.

"What he did at FOX is undeniably a masterstroke", said Kudlow. The network eventually unseated CNN as the highest-rated cable news network and became one of the most popular cable networks of all genres, reaching more than 90 million households.

He most notably served as a media adviser to President Richard Nixon, and filled similar capacities with Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. "He made the Republican control of Congress possible".

Shortly after Ailes' ouster, Fox News' parent company agreed to a $20 million settlement with lead accuser Gretchen Carlson and admitted that she "was not treated with the respect and dignity that she and all of our colleagues deserve". "I personally think that's a good thing".

He said he suspects the rest of the media, who despise Fox News, will not "leave Roger and his family alone in their time of grief" but that's ok because Ailes "just has a head start in preparing to kick your ass in the next life".
