Roger Ailes, former Fox News boss, is dead

Roger Ailes, the founding CEO of Fox News Channel, is dead at the age of 77. His wife, Elizabeth, broke the news to Drudge Report. Ailes was ousted from Fox News last summer after allegations surfaced that he had sexually harassed more than 20 women, including anchors Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly. The cable network rose to No. 1 and became a voice for the right wing on his watch. He advised Republican presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Donald Trump in an informal capacity.
