Fox News founder Roger Ailes died Thursday morning, his wife, Elizabeth Ailes, said in a statement. “Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many,” she wrote. “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.” Ailes, 77, was ousted as Fox News’ CEO last year following sexual harassment allegations.
