"Roger Ailes, who built Fox News into a cable powerhouse before leaving the company last year, died Thursday morning at the age of 77."

He was held in very high esteem by all who knew him.

The man responsible for our current split nation, right and left.

He was held in very high esteem by all who knew him.

Except those who was sexually assaulted and harassed by him.

I will celebrate no man's death.

Neither am I obligated to mourn.

I merely note that he has died.

"The man responsible for our current split nation, right and left."

Hardly. This came about in '92 when Clinton was elected. It was the reaction to Clinton's election and, especially, his wife's attempted health care reforms, that lead to the start of the polarization of the the US electorate. The '94 elections were the political reaction.

Fox News doesn't start until '96. Ailes left political consulting in '91.

He may have capitalized on the polarization but he is not responsible for it.

"The man responsible for our current split nation, right and left."

Not Clinton(s) either. It came about because we are an easily manipulated nation of dumb-assed singing vaginas that are so narcissistic that we put ourselves above the greater good.

And apolgies to Mr. Ailes for posting this on this board.
