He was probably powered by sexual harassment - his fuel ran out

Ailes well that ends well

As for the whole "Body Is A Temple" thing? Well, many ancient deities often enjoyed offerings of Sweets and Intoxicants

Fox News announced today that they would honour Ailes the way he would have wanted ... they are blaming his death on Hillary Clinton.

While I don't believe that anyone's life should be whitewashed just because they passed, even in an obituary, I still believe reactions for most people should be respectful, if not for the person who died, for family and friends.

I also don't believe in the binary opinion of most people -- that they are either good or bad. People are complicated. Just because someone was a political opponent, or an asshole of a boss, a serial harasser, or even a criminal (with some exceptions), it doesn't follow that they didn't have good qualities that should also be honored.

And I'll admit to being a hypocrite here, as I enjoy the good, ill-timed and crass joke when someone passes. If it's funny, it's rarely too soon.

Not really that surprising. Lots of people retire from their job and then drop dead within 6 months.

Particularly when they "retire" in the midst of numerous sexual misconduct allegations.

So what I think you're saying is that it's an act of benevolence on the part of the powers that be when they've put Americans in a situation where we don't have the savings to retire, thereby delaying our deaths?

Allegations might be the right word to use. Was he ever actually charged with a crime? I'll admit to not paying attention to everything The Resistance is doing.

   As someone else mentioned, people are rarely evenly good or bad across their personality or life. I like this piece from one Juan Williams:

Whether he was charged with a crime or not is irrelevant. The allegations against him (and they were many, many allegations) were that he routinely and regularly sexually harassed women who worked for him, including a lot of the on-air "talent" hired by FOX News. While sexual harassment isn't a crime (except in certain circumstances or when government figures are involved), I would still call serial harassers shit-bags and their transgressions "sexual misconduct."

The civil lawsuits against FOX will continue despite Ailes' death. Assuming they actually go to trial, a jury will decide if they are merely "allegations" or something more.

Like my mom said about my grandmother, she didn't have a kind word to say about my grandfather when he was alive but when he died he became a saint.
