The man who created and then blew up Fox News with scandals is dead:

“I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many,” his wife Elizabeth Ailes said in a statement.

Ailes resigned as president and chairman last year after numerous sexual harassment allegations.
