Former Fox news chief visited Naples in 2010

Fox news host Roger Ailes, who died Thursday, visited Collier County in 2010.
Ailes spoke at Ave Maria University, and in an interview with Fox 4, he defended the network's reputation for having a conservative slant.
"Stay number one, quadruple the size of the audience," he said at the time, when asked where he saw the network going.
Ailes told us several years back, he didn't seem to care if people were offended by him or his network.
"I don't pay attention to what people say to me, I never have.  I don't care what they think of me."
Ailes left the cable network under a cloud of controversy last year.
He settled out of court for millions of dollars in a sexual harassment case brought by former anchor Gretchen Carlson.
Ailes' death comes after longtime host Bill O'Reilly was dismissed last month for sexual harassment.
