Roger Ailes Has Died

Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report has announced that Roger Ailes, former CEO of Fox News, has died three days after his 77th birthday.

  

A statement from Ailes’ wife Elizabeth, posted on the Drudge Report, reads:

I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many. He was also a patriot, profoundly 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. And so even as we mourn his death, we celebrate his life…

Ailes, born May 15, 1940, rose to prominence in the 1960s as a television producer, crossing over into the world of politics for then-Senator Richard Nixon’s 1968 presidential bid. He served as a consultant for Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush on their successful presidential campaigns in 1984 and 1988.
