Fox News Channel founder Roger Ailes dies at 77: report

Roger Ailes, media guru and political strategist, dies at 77

The Left would command a monopoly control of the so-called "news" media but for the Fox News Channel, and FNC would not exist but for him.

Instead, Fox feels at a crossroads. The former Fox News chairman suffered from a preexisting condition of hemophilia that prevents blood clotting, which was a major contributor to his death.

The founder of Fox News, Roger Ailes, who was ousted from his own company in July 2016, following a series of sexual harassment charges filed by female employees, died Thursday, aged 77.

TOMS RIVER - A judge has sentenced a New Jersey pizzeria heir to 30 years in prison without ... "Roger's on the line", Smith recalled that moment in Cleveland.

Ryssdal: When you watch Fox news today, what do you see?

"Roger Ailes experienced that hatred and it killed him", O'Reilly wrote.

CLEVELAND Longtime Fox News CEO Roger Ailes built his fame and fortune in TV and politics in the power corridors of NY and Washington, but classmates who knew him growing up in OH say he was down-to-earth and never forgot his Midwestern roots. He was obliged to stand down previous year amid accusations of sexual harassment. And they don't have that right now.

VINELAND - The city's new mayor once bench-pressed 450 pounds. Ailes denies them. A string of similar allegations and lawsuits follow over the next two years. When he talked about the challenges of birthing the new network - "no studios, control rooms, stars, programs or anything else"- Ailes said one thing was certain: "We knew there was an audience".

After college, Ailes headed to Cleveland to take a television job.

He says his memo is not a finding of official misconduct and is not a statement of reasons to justify Comey's firing. It also comes after the president dismissed former FBI Director James Comey.

Actor Powers Boothe has died, aged 68
He was known for his roles in "Sin City ", "The Avengers " and also the TV series called "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D". Boothe was known for playing bad guys in many films, including " Tombstone ", " Sin City " and " The Avengers ".

"There was an underdog spirit here that was exhilarating, and our leader was inspiring like none other" he said. That was possible because a huge share of its programming, especially early on, is created inside a studio, avoiding the high cost of reporting in the field that was long a network news tradition. "The Five", for example, with four conservatives kicking around stories with a single defensive liberal, was a simple Ailes concept that hit its mark. "An extremely intelligent man", Levin said of Ailes.

And Ailes determined that many viewers like getting their news from attractive blondes in short skirts.

Ailes "believed the television screen had to come alive - not just the person, but everything on it", Ruddy said.

This has earned Fox News a remarkably loyal audience, along with some criticism that it wasn't fulfilling news organizations' traditional responsibility to inform and educate. Kelly's new show on NBC News premieres in June. O'Reilly's firing last month was the most damaging; he'd been the network's top-rated personality for most of its existence. What we do know is that these are important days for Fox News.

FOLKENFLIK: Ailes called Fox fair and balanced and said the other news outlets weren't.

He went on to advise President-elect Donald Trump's campaign.

Those sentiments were jarring to me because I grew up admiring and respecting the Daily News, the Journal and other newspapers. It generates more than a billion dollars a year for Twenty-First Century Fox, the parent company. As much as I hate to admit it, I can't think of a single individual who's had more impact on our country's politics over the last 20 years.

Fox might have to start acting like a real news operation, not just in the Special Report news hour or Fox News Sunday. What's more it's influential: a recent Pew study found 20% of users have "modified their stance on a social or political issue because of material they saw on social media".
