‘What A Joke’: Roger Ailes’ Widow Ridicules Fall Of Fox News

Elizabeth Ailes says the Murdochs have 'wreaked havoc' on the powerhouse network her husband built

  • Roger Ailes, the late visionary TV executive credited with building Fox News into the dominant cable news network, would have celebrated his birthday May 15.
  • In remembrance, Ailes’ widow, Elizabeth, fired off a scathing tweet criticizing the Murdoch family that forced out Ailes.
  • Elizabeth Ailes wrote: “It took you 20 years to build Fox News into the powerhouse that it was and only 6 years for the Murdochs to wreak havoc. Rupert thought he could do your job. What a joke. He has the checkbook but could never come close to your genius. RIP.”
