Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer dies at 68

He won a Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for his commentary in the Post.

Special Report anchor Bret Baier reacted to the death of his good friend and a friend of all at Fox News Channel, Dr. Charles Krauthammer. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live.

The conservative writer and pundit Charles Krauthammer has died. This is the final verdict.

Krauthammer foretold readers of his prognosis in a June 8 Post column, saying, "I have been uncharacteristically silent these past 10 months".

Krauthammer wrote that he had been recovering from surgery past year to remove a cancerous tumor in his abdomen, and while he has been "gradually making my way back to health", recent tests showed that cancer has returned and was spreading rapidly.

Krauthammer was "one of baseball's greatest fans", according to the Washington Nationals, an MLB team which wrote on Twitter that the Harvard-trained psychiatrist "was loved and admired by many and will be truly missed here at Nationals Park".

New York Times columnist Ross Douthat said there's "no greater master of the form" than Krauthammer, and numerous others have expressed their respect for his status among writers. Our thoughts and prayers are with his beloved wife Robyn and his son Daniel.

"I leave this life with no regrets", he added. "I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended", he said in conclusion.
