Roger Ailes

Fox News founder Roger Ailes dead at 77

Roger Ailes, the communications maestro who transformed television news and America’s political conversation by creating and ruling Fox News Channel for two decades before being ousted last year for alleged sexual harassment, died Thursday, according to his wife, Elizabeth Ailes. He was 77.

A former GOP operative to candidates including Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and a one-time adviser to President Donald Trump, Ailes’ TV network changed the face of 24-hour news. In early 1996, he accepted a challenge from media titan Rupert Murdoch to build a news network from scratch to compete with CNN and other TV outlets they deemed left-leaning.

That October, Ailes flipped the switch on Fox News Channel, which within a few years became the audience leader in cable news. Ailes branded the network “Fair and Balanced” and declared he had left the political world behind, but conservative viewers found a home and lifted prime-time commentators Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity to the top of the news ratings.

Rashaan Salaam

Rashaan Salaam, former Heisman Trophy-winning running back, dies

Rashaan Salaam, who won the Heisman Trophy in 1994, has died, a family spokesperson said Tuesday.

He was 42.

Salaam’s body was found in a parking lot at Eben G. Fine Park and 911 was called just before 9 p.m. on Monday, according to Boulder Police spokesperson Shannon Cordingly. The park is less than two miles from Folsom Field, where Salaam starred as a running back for the University of Colorado.

Cordingly said there were no signs of foul play and an autopsy to determine the cause of death will be performed by the Boulder County Coroner’s Office. Police told Salaam’s mother, Khalada, they suspect suicide after finding a note. She told USA Today Sports, “They said they found a note and would share that with us when we get there.”

“The Buff Family has lost an outstanding young man and a great Buff today,” Colorado athletic director Rick George said Tuesday. “We are heartbroken for Rashaan and his family, and our thoughts and prayers are with them at this very difficult time.”

The football team at Colorado tweeted about Salaam’s death.

The Chicago Bears, who picked Salaam in the first round (No. 21 overall) of the 1995 draft, tweeted, “Our thoughts are with his family.” Continue reading
