Rodney Hoffman of Montecito Heights declines to identify Ailes as a force for good:
Ailes is second only to Reagan as responsible for the rise of the right.
I agree with [Fox News host] Sean Hannity that Ailes "dramatically and forever changed the political and the media landscape singlehandedly," but Hannity says that was "for the better."
Maybe [this is true] if you are employed by Fox News. For the rest of the country, it's been a lasting disaster.
