Larry Kudlow reacts to Roger Ailes death on WLS

Kenny Thornton | 20 May, 2017, 00:10

Fox News executive chairman Rupert Murdoch issued a statement on the death of Roger Ailes, saying the media giant was "shocked and grieved" by his passing.

A statement from his wife Elizabeth said she was "profoundly sad and heartbroken", calling him a "patriot". "I knew Ailes. Competed against him in campaigns", said David Axelrod, ex-adviser to former President Barack Obama, on Twitter.

The family statement called Ailes "a patriot, profoundly grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise-and to give back".

The controversy really gained steam in July 2016, when Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit against Ailes alleging sexual harassment and wrongful termination. Or that Ailes, who helped craft former President Richard Nixon's anger-stoked presidential campaign, informally advised Trump during his run for president. Despite Ailes' denials of the allegations, he was forced to resign in the aftermath.

Born in Warren, Ohio, his big break came in 1967 when Richard Nixon appeared as a guest on a talk show he was working on, persuading the future USA president about the power of television.

The founder of Fox News and longtime Republican political operative had a profound influence on American life, building Fox News into a powerhouse that transformed the media landscape and conservative politics.

Hosts Bret Baier, Bill Hemmer, and Sean Hannity quickly praised Ailes, and Ainsley Earhardt choked up on "Fox & Friends" while announcing Ailes' death.

Ailes leaves behind his wife, along with their son, Zachary Ailes.

He also convinced centre back David Luiz to return to Chelsea after a two-year stint with Paris Saint-Germain. For now, Conte will savor winning the Premier League.

The ex-O'Reilly Factor star also noted that in his almost 20 years working for Ailes, the ex-FNC head never pushed him to say anything on the air.

The Putnam County Sheriff's Department told BuzzFeed News that it didn't respond to and was not investigating Ailes' death.

Still, others noted that his legacy was undoubtedly marked by the culture of harassment that some say flourished at Fox News under his watch.

"Roger and I shared a big idea which he executed in a way no one else could have", Murdoch wrote of Ailes, who died Thursday morning at age 77.

In 1996, Murdoch, seeing a market for a conservative cable news outlet, hired Ailes to create Fox News.

The formula shook the American news industry and changed American politics.

To a man who values loyalty so highly, being pushed out of Fox News - even with a $40 million golden parachute - must have felt like a betrayal.
