NEW YORK, N.Y. (FNN NEWS) – Longtime Fox News commentator and conservative Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer informed his fans of some dire health news in a short note on the Washington Post website Friday: he is now confronting an aggressive form of cancer. “My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live,” he wrote. “This is the final verdict. My fight is over.”
Krauthammer underwent cancer surgery last year and, despite the numerous complications, was on the road to recovery. Fox News even hoped for his return. However, things took a turn again recently. “Recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned,” he explained. “There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly.”
Fox News executive chairman Rupert Murdoch and Vice President Mike Pence have each paid tribute to Krauthammer in light of this news: Murdoch by official statement and Vice President Pence by tweet.
