I was irritated by all the kind things said about him this morning on Morning Joe. Sure, they may have been going through the motions or remembering the old Riger Ailes whoever that was. I can't say anything good, so, I'll stop now.
He deeply cared for his employees....
The man died. He has family and loved ones, it's called be respectful to those people. You have to be one classless SOB to stomp on them at this point in time.
Excellent news. One more turd in hells toilet.
No one has ever accused the left of having class.
See above and below.
Yes, he cared a lot for the female employees.
Granted he was a powerful and successful and a king maker, but his downfall was blind "conservatism"
He sexually assaulted women. I'm more on their side than his.
At his point its not about him, it's about respecting for his survivors. That's what you do when someone dies.
Yes, I'm respecting the women he assaulted. I wish them the best.
You don't have to do anything. I reckon there’s a sizable body count at least partially due to the rhetoric of his network manufacturing consent.
Sooooooo screw him. His family will somehow have to find comfort in his piles of cash.
I have no such problem.
He was a man of perverted patriotism and morals, who enriched himself propagandizing gullible people by appealing to their worst instincts. Instead of informing us, he gleefully stoked suspicion and fear, turning Americans against each other, creating an alternate reality for right wingers to live in. Pornographers make a more honest living.
Burn in hell, Roger.
The man single-handedly created "fake news," crafted daily "talking points" that misled the populace and generally undermined the democratic process. He cared very little about the legacy he created for his "survivors."
I definitely don't think you ever have to mourn someone's death or be "respectful". I didn't feel one ounce of sympathy when Osama Bin Laden died. I won't care when Jerry Sandusky or Bashar al-Assad die. There are certainly some people who are evil enough that I won't feel any sympathy or respect when they die. That level of evil has to be pretty high for me, though, so Roger Ailes doesn't quite cut it. No doubt he was a POS in many ways, but I'm not going to celebrate his death. I'll just hope people remember the bad things he did and not romanticize him now just because of his death.
Can I assume you liked Roger Ailes with all his blemishes?
So you see no value in calling a spade a spade after they pass?
Does class require withholding criticism regardless of a person's history and dubious accomplishments?
It's not as if we are aquaintences of the family, but some of us are assessing this man's life as objective observers. PS- Some advice, it's a mistake to group people in the matter of how you categorized the Left.
Not like he lived with any...
I take it you weren't one of the people cheering in the streets (great look America ) after the illegal assassination of Osama Bin Laden?
Liberal blood lust. Always adorbs.
What are their user names on macrumors, just that I know whom to be politically correct towards for the next few days to avoid hurting them?
Good point, thanks to BoxerGT2.5 for reminding us to be PC about this whole thing
Unrelated and I won't be indulging in an extended discussion about this, but requesting a link establishing his death was illegal according to US or International law.
If the man genuinely cared he would have lived his life as a positive example for his loved ones and others' sake. I believe he set the tone for use to follow.
Skirts at Fox News offices will be lowered to half-mast in his honor.
...Assassination is illegal under international law. Now, we live in a fantasy reality where because the US has declared the entire globe an active battlefield so there's somehow some "nuance" to it. But on its face, it's internationally illegal for a foreign country to summarily execute someone (especially in foreign lands) without due process.
That's it. You win.
