BREAKING: Roger Ailes Reported Dead

It has come to our attention that former Fox News CEO and Chairman Roger Ailes has passed away.

The embattled CEO had recently been ousted from his spot atop the nation’s number one cable network after sexual harassment allegations were cast his direction by now-former Fox anchor Megyn Kelly.  Ailes’ wife Elizabeth made a statement early on Thursday morning:

"I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many. He was also a patriot, profoundly grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise—and to give back. During a career that stretched over more than five decades, his work in entertainment, in politics, and in news affected the lives of many millions. And so even as we mourn his death, we celebrate his life..."
Others were quick to send a message of support to the heartbroken family via Twitter this morning:





More news regarding the passing of Mr. Ailes will surely be forthcoming today.
