<p>Many conservatives were in morning Thursday after news broke of the death of Fox News mastermind Roger Ailes. In <a href="…; target="_blank">a statement</a>, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell stated that &ldquo;the Left would command a monopoly control of the so-called &quot;news&quot; media but for the Fox News Channel, and FNC would not exist but for him.&rdquo; But for NBC, it was a time to tear down what he did for conservative media and politics in general.</p>

<p>&ldquo;The coroner says Ailes died from complications related to a head injury that he suffered after a fall in his home in Florida,&rdquo; announced Anchor Lester Holt during <em>NBC Nightly News</em>. &ldquo;His death at 77 comes less than a year after he was ousted from the empire he built following a sexual harassment scandal.&rdquo;</p>

<p>The segment on Ailes&rsquo; death was put together by Ann Thompson, who wasted little time before ripping into him. &ldquo;A polarizing figure to the end, Roger Ailes combined his two passions, politics and television to build Fox News. Allegedly abusing his power for his own pleasure,&rdquo; she chided.&nbsp;</p>
