Roger Ailes, the mastermind and former head of Fox News, died Thursday as first reported by the Drudge Report.
“I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning,” said his wife Elizabeth. “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.”
No cause of death has been announced.
