From Laura Ingraham’s Lifezette blog:
Friends and family of former Fox News chairman and founding CEO Roger Ailes gathered together and mourned his death Saturday during an intimate service at the St. Edward Roman Catholic Church in Palm Beach, Florida. Family and friends alike remembered Ailes as fiercely committed to his principles and always willing to lend a hand to an up-and-comer.
“I loved my father,” Ailes’ 17-year-old son, Zachary, told LifeZette. “He considered how much certain people hated him as a measure of success.” Zachary pledged to fight to clear his father’s name after a series of sexual harassment allegations led to his ultimate ouster from Fox News. “I want all the people who betrayed my father to know that I’m coming after them,” Zachary Ailes said during a speech at the ceremony, “and hell is coming with me.”
From Death And Taxes:
If that sounds familiar, it’s because he took it from Kurt Russell’s Wyatt Earp in “Tombstone.” So if in the future you ever find yourself wondering why victims of sexual assault don’t report their harassers, it’s because powerful people can openly threaten them like this. The line in the movie is an explicit death threat. It’s not a cute reference or harmless instance of a son being loyal to his father, regardless of how comically less menacing Zachary Ailes is than Kurt Russell. Despite being extremely dead, Roger Ailes is still the subject of several lawsuits and investigations stemming from numerous accusations of sexual harassment.
Among those attending the funeral was Ingraham, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh.
