LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Kody Fairfield

Media titan Roger Ailes, who resigned from his positions as chairman and CEO of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network amid sexual harassment allegations last year, has died at age 77, reports CNBC.

Ailes, who had recently stepped down from his position at the top of Fox News following former Fox News Channel Host Gretchen Carlson’s sexual harassment lawsuit against him, helped shape modern day news cycle.

In the early 1990s, Ailes left his post as president of CNBC to create Fox News, but he has also worked as a producer and political consultant.

Elizabeth Ailes, Roger’s wife has released a statement on her husband’s passing:

“I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning surrounded by his beautiful family. Roger was my best friend, the most wonderful loving husband and father to our son Zachary, He was a loyal friend to so many. Roger was a patriot, grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise-and to give back. During a career that stretched over more than five decades, his work in entertainment, in politics, and in news affected the lives of many millions.”

As of now, no cause of death has been released, reports CNBC.

Many people, including Fox News hosts have taken to social media to commemorate their former boss.

Unfortunately, as Paul Joesph Watson predicted, some on Twitter couldn’t leave the politics out of the loss of life. Many tolerant liberals took to chastising the late Ailes, and those who spoke words for him and his family.
