Before working at Fox, Ailes was employed as a media consultant for Republican presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush, as well as a consultant on Rudy Giuliani's NY mayoral campaign. His first TV job was as a producer for The Mike Douglas Show from 1965-68.
Discussing Ailes' impact on politics and culture in the U.S., Sherman said, "One of Ailes' lasting legacies will be that for millions of Americans, news is now no longer viewed as a way to be informed about the world; it's a way of gathering information that advances your side". It also emerged as a powerful force on the political scene, while the feisty, hard-charging Ailes swatted off criticism that the network he branded as "Fair and Balanced" had a conservative tilt.

Carlson's lawyers eventually said more than 20 women had contacted the firm with stories of alleged harassment by Ailes either against themselves or someone they knew.
Since Ailes' exit, Kelly and Greta Van Susteren have left Fox, and O'Reilly was sacked after a sexual harassment scandal of his own (his victims had been paid to keep quiet). She responded with a six-word statement: "That's not a discussion for today".
Ailes was 77, according to the website of Fox News, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. He has dramatically and forever changed the political and the media landscape single-handedly for the better".
