Roger Ailes Net Worth

Roger Ailes Net Worth

This week Roger Ailes, who created Fox News and led it through nearly all of its 20-year existence, until he was forced out last year in a sexual harassment scandal, died in Florida.

Mr. Ailes died after a fall at his Palm Beach, Fla., home on May 10 caused bleeding on the brain, the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner's Office said.

The death of Roger Ailes, who built Fox News into the dominant force in cable news, came nearly as suddenly as his removal from the company he built. Ailes stepped down from his role as chairman and CEO in July 2016 amid allegations that he had sexually harassed female coworkers.

Ailes also owned homes in Cresskill, New Jersey, and Garrison, New York.

Ailes' wife, Elizabeth Ailes, confirmed her husband's death in a statement to Drudge Report. For Roger, that meant more than all his accomplishments, and I hope that brought him solace in his last tough year.

Roger Ailes' death has brought out an array of weird euphemisms and sexist excuses from the conservative media as they try to eulogize the controversial man.

Ailes long commanded one of the pillars of Murdoch's media empire, and a unit of the Murdoch-led conglomerate 21st Century Fox. During the first five years of Fox News-which was built nearly single-handedly by Ailes' genius-I was a regular on-air contributor/panelist there. "He will be remembered by the many people on both sides of the camera he discovered, nurtured and promoted".

Casse likes the neighboring posts. "It's like a dream for us to come this far, this fast, to be a trainer ", Hernandez said. Many attribute his fourth-place showing in the Derby to being jostled at the start from the No. 15 post position .

But considering the tough-talking, anti-political correctness brand Fox News has tried to build, it's ironic that, in O'Reilly's opinion, Ailes might have been too sensitive to handle the backlash - especially to the point that it killed him. "In addition, Roger was a great patriot who never ceased fighting for his beliefs". Despite the high-profile departures, Fox News ratings have remained strong.

"He has dramatically and forever changed the political and the media landscape singlehandedly for the better, " Hannity tweeted Thursday.

Mr O'Reilly was sacked from his top-rated show at Fox in April after reports surfaced that the network had settled lawsuits with five women who alleged he sexually harassed them.

If nothing else, it's worth noting the rather matter-of-fact statement (and its lack of superlatives) emailed from Ohio University regarding Ailes, a graduate and substantial financial donor to the school: "Today, we learned of the passing of alumnus Roger Ailes". After graduating in 1962, he launched his career in black and white-era television by working for then-local personality Mike Douglas.

While he left the network in disgrace, and many accused him of fostering a sexist work culture, Ailes was responsible for creating and catapulting such stars as Bill O'Reilly. The following year, he was hired as Nixon's television manager and helped him win the presidency in 1968. Many people out there would say that he saved this country by starting the Fox News Channel.

Ailes reportedly helped coach the now president for last year's election campaign debates. AP is the largest and most trusted source of independent news and information. African American employees and former employees at Fox have also filed a lawsuit alleging a pattern of discriminatory hiring and advancement. Their only son, Zachary, was born on New Year's Day 2000.
