Roger Ailes's LegacyMore

He bought an oceanfront home in Palm Beach for $36 million shortly after leaving Fox News and declared himself a state resident, according to public records.

JUDY WOODRUFF: Late today, the medical examiner in Palm Beach County, Florida, said that Ailes died of bleeding on the brain.

As I spoke about Ailes yesterday in television and radio interviews, I thought of Ailes's victims, who were denied the closure of seeing their sexual-harassment lawsuits against him go to trial.

His wife Elizabeth announced his death in a short statement read out on Fox News by emotional news anchors.

AINSLEY EARHARDT: Roger believed in hard work. In April 2012, I ran into him during a party at The Four Seasons, shortly after I had returned from a reporting trip to his childhood hometown of Warren, Ohio.

"Fox News is the gold standard by which everyone is measured in cable news and that is a big part of his legacy", O'Connell said.

FOLKENFLIK: He certainly saw it that way.

Evangelical leader Reed, a regular Fox guest over the years, offered a more optimistic view: "Whatever one thinks of Fox News, and there are certainly people who don't like it for whatever reason, it is undeniable that it changed the media environment and ensured the conservative viewpoint was consistently and reliably represented".

Then-Vice President George H.W. Bush gets some advice from his media advisor, Roger Ailes, during the 1988 Republican National Convention in New Orleans. He joined Fox in 1996 and helped build it into a massively influential and profitable section of Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox. Her accusations were followed by claims of harassment from other women, including Fox News host Andrea Tantaros.

FRED BARNES: They were so used to thinking that the media was completely barren as far as they were concerned. Some lawsuits aren't against Ailes, but against Fox, with Ailes just being a witness. He defined Fox as patriotic, implying that competing journalists didn't care about their country. "May he rest in peace", conservative media watchdog Brent Bozell. He created a television juggernaut that transformed the news business. Ruddy also points to another factor. Mark Zuckerberg quickly denied any responsibility, saying: "Personally, I think the idea that fake news on Facebook ... influenced the election in any way is a pretty insane idea".

"RIP Roger Ailes a good friend, great American and communications genius @StoneColdTruth", - author and political adviser Roger Stone.

JOE MUTO: Trump equaled the ratings. In the era of Donald Trump that overlap has been attenuated somewhat, and that has been a challenge at Fox - and beyond.

MUTO: People really went nuts for him.

It was arguably during the Obama years that the network took its sharpest turn to the right, often fixating its coverage on what it dubbed the president's war on American values and fanning the flames of conspiracy theories that included Obama's birthplace.

"He just felt very passionate about what he was doing", Chandler said.

But if Fox was reluctant to embrace Trump during the antagonistic Republican presidential primary, the channel jumped on board after he clinched the nomination. O'Reilly was sacked his top-rated show at Fox in April after reports surfaced that the network had settled lawsuits with five women who alleged he sexually harassed them. He didn't discuss the news so much as ridicule the reporting of others.

KELLY: Here was the CEO and chairman of the board on industry publications as the most powerful man in news harassing young women of the company like myself who had been there for 12 months and who typically were in a vulnerable position.

He attended Ohio University, in Athens, where he acted in plays and worked at the radio station. "But somebody put a frame around the hole and wrote, 'Don't mess with Roger Ailes"'.

"Roger Ailes has died".
