Former Fox News Chair
Ailes was responsible for the conservative news network, until his resignation in July last year amid multiple sexual harassment scandals.
Ailes began as a media consultant to Republican presidents, including Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush. After leaving Fox News he advised the Donald Trump campaign.
