Roger Ailes, Dead at 77

Roger Ailes. The guy who gave us Saint Ronald Reagan, ratings winner Bill O'Reilly, and the notion that conservative women were hawt because he selected female on-air talent for their fuckability. We're going to see his influence for a long time.

I thought that he might be sick last year when he was forced out of Fox News. Not so long ago, he would have fought off the attacks and won.

Sexually harassing women must have used up all his finite amount of energy.

Perhaps his sexual harassment of women was the only thing keeping him alive.

Wow. Tough times for that compartmentalized part of the Republican Party.

Not sure if there's anything nice to say.

Also: Mortality sucks.

According to the oddly accurate TMZ, he fell and hit his head 8 days ago, fell unconscious and went downhill pretty fast after that.

How long till the Breitbart crowd start writing about this a deep-state conspiracy? Those Clintons and their hitmen.

Re: Roger Ailes, Dead at 77

Kind of rough for the newly deceased. But best fit for this thread.

Re: Roger Ailes, Dead at 77

Another member of the he-man-pussygrabbers-club speaks.

Roger Ailes endured hatred 'and it killed him. That is the truth.'
by Bill O'Reilly

I thought cracking his skull open killed him? Now I'm confused. His hatred didn't make him powerful.

First thing I thought of was "heart attack". And I could see the pressure and failure getting to him. A 77 year old heart can't always handle that stress. But the dude "fell" (like happens with old people) and couldn't heal properly.
