Roger Ailes: Cable is Dead

In an article speculating that Donald Trump will launch a television network if he loses the election in November, I found this interesting:
[M]ost of the Trump TV media speculation swirls around former Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes. It was Ailes who conceived, implemented and built Fox News into the behemoth is it today. Recently, Ailes was forced to step down from Fox due to sexual harassment allegations and now, supposedly he is advising Trump on campaign media strategy. But Ailes' Fox News contract precludes him from starting a competing cable channel. That is not a problem according to my contact since Ailes knows "cable is dead," and the new Trump media venture will be "internet based."
