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:
OMG #RogerAiles is gone, devastating news, & Erica & I send our condolences to Beth, their son Zack & the entire family. He was a great man
