Former Fox News chief Roger Ailes dead at 77


Ailes left the company past year amid a number of accusations that he sexually harassed women at the company. O'Reilly has denied those accusations.

New York Rep. Peter King said he had "some differences" with Ailes but that doesn't diminish his impact on news and politics.

Roger Ailes is gone, but the world he created is not.

Gabriel Sherman, who wrote a biography about Ailes, said the media giant "revolutionized politics and made it entertainment". The death has been ruled accidental and there was no evidence of foul play. It has become synonymous with the American Christian right and Ailes himself became a critical presence in the United States conservative political.

The Republican success can not be totally attributed to Ailes' network, of course, but there was broad agreement Thursday on both sides of the aisle that Ailes' conservative network was a major factor. Carlson said she was sacked for refusing Ailes' sexual advancements, and Tantaros alleged Fox News was "steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny".

Thursday's news of the death of former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes hit several staffers hard, including S.C. native Ainsley Earhardt.

The obstruction of justice allegations have sparked street protests and calls for his impeachment by Brazilian lawmakers. The regulator is also examining the sale of shares in the company by its controlling shareholders, the report said.

"What he did at FOX is undeniably a masterstroke", said Kudlow.

"He really did as much as anyone to redefine the Republican Party as a party of cultural populism ... making resentment of the media, resentment of elites, resentment of liberals who were soft on crime and soft on national security central to what the Republican Party was about", David Greenberg, a Rutgers University political scientist, told AFP. Since then, we remained very close friends. "The GOP has long had a problem speaking to people beyond the boardroom and country club. He was a genius". He helped elect Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, too.

He later became a media consultant to five Presidents starting with Richard Nixon. "Roger was my best friend, the most wonderful loving husband and father to our son, Zachary".

"Regardless of the dark sides of his character, I can tell you - and I'm sure you guys have stories - fiercely loyal", Joe Scarborough said.

Roger Ailes leaves behind a controversial legacy that will likely be viewed along partisan lines.

"Chris and I first met Roger Ailes - I was right out of school - in 1968, in Philadelphia", Andrea Mitchell recalled. He was taken to a hospital by attending paramedics.

Trump talks of engagement to resolve North Korea crisis
South Korean President said he will endeavor to begin talks quickly between the two Koreas, as well as the six-party dialogue. But a senior North Korean diplomat has said Pyongyang was open to having talks with Washington under the right conditions.

No other details were announced. And that was in large part due to Ailes and his ability to spot talent and provide production values that were friendly, fair and consumable to the American public.

"Roger was a great patriot who never ceased fighting for his beliefs", he added.

Former Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes has died, the network says, citing a statement from the late executive's family.

Ailes changed the face of 24-hour news when he accepted a challenge from media titan Rupert Murdoch to build a network from scratch to compete with CNN and other TV outlets they deemed left-leaning.

But there was a darker side to Ailes' conservatism and that played out very publicly past year when former Fox host Gretchen Carlson launched an explosive multi-million-dollar lawsuit against him, citing sexual harassment.
