Roger Ailes: Good riddance

Rolling Stone

Jeffrey P. Jones says it best: "No single individual has done more harm to American democracy in the last generation.”

In Rolling Stone:

Ailes was the Christopher Columbus of hate. When the former daytime TV executive and political strategist looked across the American continent, he saw money laying around in giant piles. He knew all that was needed to pick it up was a) the total abandonment of any sense of decency or civic duty in the news business, and b) the factory-like production of news stories that spoke to Americans' worst fantasies about each other (Roger Ailes Was One of the Worst Americans Ever).

Without Roger Ailes there would be no President Trump, the dumbest most contemptible man to ever hold that office.
