Media personalities who worked with Fox News co-founder Roger Ailes reacted to news of his death on Thursday with an outpouring of condolences and praise.
Ailes, 77, was the CEO and chairman of the network before he was pushed out last year following multiple sexual harassment allegations.
His wife, Elizabeth Ailes, confirmed Thursday morning that he had died. In a statement, she praised him as a loving husband and father, a loyal friend and a patriot.
Fox News host Sean Hannity also spoke of Ailes’ patriotism, sharing his condolences in more than dozen tweets and issuing a warning to Ailes’ “enemies.”
