When a good man dies the world feels the loss as a giant crater leaves a void that will remain unfilled forever. Best known as the Founder of Fox News, Ailes success was legendary. He was a man possessed  of a kind personality. He loved to laugh. Roger was a good husband and dad. In every measure he enjoyed a life well lived. ROGER AILES DIES CAUSE OF DEATH MEGYN KELLY.


Roger and Elizabeth Ailes


We do not like writing about Megyn Kelly.

I am not going to let Megyn Kelly’s character assassination of this man stand. If not for Roger’s passing, her name would never be in print or remembered by this reporter. Megyn Kelly cashed in by backstabbing her boss and mentor. She lay in wait for ten years! Her entire claim is that Ailes attempted to kiss her in 2006. Initially it was he “hugged her” and made her feel uncomfortable. The kiss story then appeared in her book about how bold brave and wonderful she was. Bottom line she got her 30 scheckles. But Roger’s honor and character is intact for the ages.


Who steals my purse steals trash; ’tis something, nothing;
‘Twas mine, ’tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him,
And makes me poor indeed.

Othello Act 3, Scene 3


Was this necessary? It doesn’t ring true in the least. If she was sexually harassed why would this self-proclaimed strong woman remain subordinate to Ailes for ten years? The only time this surfaced was after Gretchen Carlson’s lawsuit was filed. There was no record of it. No complaint was filed in 2006. It was not until the money settlement talk started getting around. Oh but then it showed up.

It was good for Megyn Kelly because she cashed in as a Star he made. Ah the value of the new gender feminist. It is the modern day slip and fall on steroids. She took her mediocre talent and stormed out of FOX News in a huff and was going to set the world on fire at MSNBC. Her day of fame is slipping away.


The more outwardly indignant one appears the more earned the offer looks.


Tamron Hall was forced out of the Today Show with Al Roker as Megyn Kelly pushed her way in. That’s showbiz. Hall abruptly quit. Wherever Megyn Kelly goes problems follow.


But there is one small matter to be settled which has now been settled.

Roger Ailes maintained his innocence to his death. That testimony will never change. No matter how many cheap books Megyn’s vanity press produces to stamp on the grave of this man, these pulp gems will always be punctuated by an Asterisk. *Roger Ailes maintained his innocence to his death. The same will apply to the raft of other phonies trying to cash in on their snowflake claims.


Roger Ailes was a cleaver showman. He made one big mistake:

He hired women for Fox news that were more attractive than talented. In fact that is how Fox News got its rating going. One could watch the white haired Deans of Network News or the Sparkling young female hot bodies of Fox News. It was a ploy for ratings and it worked.

But Nobody at Fox every explained that once youth had run its course that replacements would be found. They would be younger and prettier. Models don’t bellyache about this. They know the score.


Oh but but but Megyn is a serious journalist.

Yeah that’s why she did so many erotic photos in her lingerie. She knew what she was selling. Megyn Kelly never studied Journalism. She is a product of plastic surgery and symmetry. That is fashion and nothing more. In this day and age it is now fashionable for women to cash in on claims of sexual harassment. No evidence required. Just put on your indignant scowls ladies; the ones you claim you hid for ten years.


Final Curtain:

Roger suffered from hemophilia. Last week he fell and suffered a traumatic head injury and brain bleed. His devoted and dedicated wife Elizabeth penned her own statement on his passing. Elizabeth and Roger were married in 1997.


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. 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. During a career that stretched over more than five decades, his work in entertainment, in politics, and in news affected the lives of many millions. And so even as we mourn his death, we celebrate his life…


Roger was a Mensch. Palm Beach will miss you and the world will miss you. Our deepest heartfelt sympathy to Beth and Zachary.
