The Pulitzer Prize winner was a “profound source of personal and intellectual inspiration,” said Rupert Murdoch.

Charles Krauthammer, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and board-certified psychiatrist who became one of the media’s most powerful voices for conservative politics — while wooing a fair share of liberals along the way — died Thursday, his son told The Washington Post. He was 68.

On June 8, Krauthammer, a quadriplegic, revealed in a note published in the Post that doctors had informed him that he had only a “few weeks” to live because cancer removed from his abdomen 10 months earlier had returned.

Until a year ago, Krauthammer was a regular on the Fox News Channel, most notably on Special Report, where he was known as the “dean” in a segment featuring a panel of pundits the show referred to as “The Fox News All-Stars.” He also appeared often on The O’Reilly Factor before host Bill O’Reilly was ousted after accusations of sexual misconduct, and he spent 23 years as a weekly panelist on the PBS show Inside Washington.

“I believe that the pursuit of truth and right ideas through honest debate and rigorous argument is a noble undertaking,” Krauthammer wrote in the Post. “I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life — full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living.”
