Roger Ailes died

He's calling attention away from a Trump scandal one last time

Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

Who cares about the opinions of someone who celebrates the Armenian genocide...It's like naming your fake YouTube news show "The Hitler Youth".

Rogers Ailes = a Republican political hack/operative (who continued to defend Richard Nixon years after everyone in the world knew him to be a criminal!), who later started a Right-Wing news network so that all the poor, oppressed, disenfranchised white men could have something to watch on TV. Not surprisingly, he also had a penchance for sexually harassing women, similar to other (ex-)Fox News hacks like Bill O'Reilly.

Why would anyone shed any tears for this guy?
agree
make sure there is No Wynne in Ontario by June 2018

Nice eulogy kid.
“I want all the people who betrayed my father to know that I’m coming after them,” Zachary Ailes said during a speech at the ceremony, “and hell is coming with me.”

Zachary Ailes has every right to defend his deceased Father against allegations and accusations, all of which are legally unproven.

Roger Ailes and the network he headed, Fox News, has done more to create a divide in America than anyone since before WW2. Ratings were always more important to him than the good of the country. We won't be mourning for him in our family.

And George Soros on the opposite side has contributed to that same divide....equally. So, blaming one individual is narrow minded.
The left has their sugar daddy the same as the right.

Hear which part? That where he was a mentor to her? Or the collegial friendship they had? Or the part where he was a professional? Or the part where he pioneered the cable news genre? Or where he was a media genius? Or the part where she considered him a friend?

Certainly comments of the other side...especially from the hate on this thread.
