Roger Ailes was a disaster for the country

The Los Angeles Times published this letter from me today. (They added the bracketed pieces.)

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.
