Bill O'Reilly: Roger Ailes Endured Hatred 'And It Killed Him. That Is The Truth.’ [Watch]

Bill O’Reilly, USA Today

At Fox News, Ailes delivered traditional views and Americans heard him loud and clear.

To say that Roger Ailes led a full life is a massive understatement. A force of nature with an agenda, RA, as fellow executives called him, was a man on a mission.

That quest was to infuse America with traditional philosophy and see to it that conservatives like him were heard loud and clear.

The list of legendary Americans whom Roger helped is long and impressive. From Ronald Reagan to George Bush, the elder, to Rush Limbaugh, Ailes gave them all blunt advice that led them to success.

And it was that bluntness that made his life difficult, as enemies accumulated — some armed with a brutal hatred.

It was the Fox News channel that crowned Roger's career of achievement. In 1996, the cable news start-up was mocked by CNN's Ted Turner. Few thought Ailes and his inexperienced crew would dethrone the mighty international news agency that Turner helmed.

But it happened and relatively quickly.

I was there at the beginning. When Roger offered me an hourly program, I asked if he'd like to see a written outline.

Ailes scoffed, told me to be fair and tough but, most of all, not to screw it up. I knew that I had to meet his personal challenge: work hard, be honest in my opinions. Do not seek to curry favor.

Not once in almost 20 years did Roger Ailes order me to say anything on the air. I had total independence. In private, I sometimes challenged his orthodoxy. I wish I had taped that.

Cambodia's Deadly Experiment

In the 1950s, students started gathering in Paris. They were reading Karl Marx. They were forming book clubs. They were trying to come up with a better version of society. One that moved away from the division of labor. One that moved away from the capitalism in the big cities that they so despised. ... One of those students would change his name to Pol Pot. He and his colleagues formed a new political party, a takeover in Cambodia. They called themsevles the Khmer Rouge. ... Under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, one out of four people in that country died in less than four years.
