Roger Eugene Ailes is the president of Newspaper Corporation of America and publisher of the New Frontiersman.
Roger Ailes headed the Newspaper Corporation of America (NCA), which was also a parent corporation of the New Frontiersman.
In 2018, Ailes filed a lawsuit against Veidt Enterprises and Trieu Industries; claiming that there was a systematic campaign of harassment, intimidation, and sabotage against him and his employees for publishing these claims. The lawsuit was dismissed and the federal government subsequently ordered NCA to either publish an apology to Veidt or pay a $100,000 for violating the Content Code Act. Ailes refused to apologize and chose to pay the fine instead.
- In real life, Roger Ailes was the chairman and CEO of Fox News, Fox Television Stations and 20th Television, from which he resigned in July 2016 after allegations of sexual harassment were made by 23 women. Ailes was a media consultant for Republican presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush, and for Rudy Giuliani's first mayoral campaign. He also became an adviser to the Donald Trump campaign, where he assisted with debate preparation.
- Although Ailes died in May 18, 2017, he is still alive in the Watchmen universe, presumably with his hemophilia never agitated by the stress of sexual harassment accusations he faced in real life.
