NEW YORK (AP) — "He wasn't perfect, but Roger Ailes was my friend & I loved him. Not sure I would have been President w/o his great talent, loyal help. RIP." —George H.W. Bush.

"He has dramatically and forever changed the political and the media landscape singlehandedly for the better." — Sean Hannity.

"A brilliant broadcaster, Roger played a huge role in shaping America's media over the last thirty years." — Rupert Murdoch.

"In the years I worked with Ailes he was a great mentor, deeply patriotic, committed to Fox News and really worried about America." — Newt Gingrich, former House speaker.

"RIP Roger Ailes a good friend, great American and communications genius @StoneColdTruth," — author and political adviser Roger Stone.

"Deeply saddened by death of Roger Ailes. He had many critics and like ALL of us his sins, but I remember a great patriot, friend and boss." — Fox commentator, former presidential candidate and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

"Roger Ailes has died. Let all his victims now be ungagged for the true, full reckoning of his life. And give them back their jobs." — Lisa Bloom, attorney for Wendy Walsh, who made sexual harassment allegations against Ailes.

"I'd like to offer my condolences to the wife and son of Roger Ailes. I knew Roger for over 30 years and from the start I was in awe of his talent. The Left would command a monopoly control of the so-called 'news' media but for the Fox News Channel, and FNC would not exist but for him. The good Roger did for America is immeasurable. May he rest in peace," conservative media watchdog Brent Bozell.

"Love and prayers to Beth and Zach. R.I.P Roger — you changed television as we know it," — Bret Baier.

"Roger was a friend and a mentor to so many of us @FoxNews he will be missed," Kimberly Guilfoyle.

"Roger Ailes died this morning, our deepest sympathies to Beth and his son Zach. Roger was a media genius, good friend and great American." — Lou Dobbs.

"Roger Ailes founded one of the most important and successful media outlets in American history. I will miss his friendship dearly. RIP." — Laura Ingraham.

"RIP #RogerAiles sending my love and prayers to Beth & Zachary. Roger was a friend and a mentor to so many of us @FoxNews he will be missed." — Kimberly Guilfoyle.

"Rest in peace Roger Ailes, you made a difference in this nation, a very great difference." — Country rock star Charlie Daniels.
