Charles Krauthammer, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and Fox News commentator, died on Thursday, according to the Washington Post.

Fox News confirmed Krauthammer's death almost two weeks after he revealed in an emotional letter that his cancer had returned and he had just "weeks" to live.

Krauthammer announced on June 8 that doctors had given him just weeks to live.

Baier said that, before his death, Krauthammer was able to see the outpouring of support and love for him and his life's work, after Baier told the Special Report audience of the state of the commentator's health.

Krauthammer, who was permanently paralyzed in a diving accident during his first year at Harvard Medical School, won the Pulitzer for commentary in 1987.

The girl's mother was being frisked and body-searched (after which she was reportedly detained) when Moore took this picture. Mr Moore said he told the boy: "It will be OK" and then felt guilty, because he did not know what the child's fate would be.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague and friend, Charles Krauthammer.

"His pen functioned like a lighthouse, helping all of us see more clearly and reason more thoroughly through the most important issues that our nation faced", McConnell said in a statement.

Krauthammer was a champion of hawkish foreign policy and was known for supporting the war in Afghanistan as well as the invasion of Iraq under President George W. Bush. At the time, he was also a marquee essayist for Time, the New Republic, the Weekly Standard and the National Interest, The Post reported.

In a poignant farewell column earlier this month, Krauthammer wrote he had "no regrets" and that he lived the life he intended.

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott said Krathammer will be missed.
