Skull Roger Ailes, former president of Fox News, dead at 77

Quote:
Roger Ailes, who built Fox News into a cable powerhouse before leaving the company last year, died at the age of 77.
The Ohio-born television pioneer was a confidante of presidents and a acknowledged master of communications. He resigned from Fox in July amid charges of sexual harrassment.
His widow, Elizabeth Ailes, confirmed the news in a statement.

I'm a little surprised that no where in that article did anyone blame the accusations of harassment for his death.

Which, ironically, sounds like sexual harassment.

But his co-conspirator in harassment said it.

"Deposed Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly broke his silence Thursday on the death of Roger Ailes via a USA Today op-ed in which he claimed that hatred toward the cable news channel’s founder was what “killed him.”"

According to an article I saw this morning, he'd fallen recently and that that was what ultimately caused his death. Weirdly, I can't find the article again online, so it may have been only in the print edition of the Seattle Times.

The article Sooeygun's linked to says that. According to the Variety article linked in the article, TMZ also reported it was due to the fall he had previously taken.

Pretty common way for a man his age to die.

Dammit, there goes another irony meter.

Obviously he was killed by the Clintons in an effort to seek revenge for Hillary not winning the presidency. Just you watch: over the next several decades, people who worked against her winning, or worked to undermine Bill while he was in office, will die off. It'll mostly start with the older men, but over time, younger and younger ones (or ones who had been younger) will die also. Will no one stop the ClintonEvil?

Maybe it is like the tales of arsenic eaters who die from arsenic poisoning if they don't regularly consume it? IOW, Ailes died from hate withdrawal.

ETA: Roger Ailes wronged Hillary and he later took a fall that resulted in injury. Bill Clinton wronged Hillary and he later took a fall that resulted in injury. Coincidence?

Yeah, probably.
