Roger Ailes, creator of Fox News, looked back on the cable channel's 15-year success in a recent interview.

Here's my favorite line from the 71-year-old Ailes:

"I just went to my doctor and he said, 'Other than arthritis, your chart reads like a 40-year-old's. You're old, you're fat and you're ugly, but you're not going to die from any of those things immediately.''
