As the powerhouse behind Fox News, Roger Ailes changed the course of US politics and discourse as much as Hearst or Pulitzer affected their times. Ailes was a key force in electing several Republican presidents, including Donald Trump, with consequences felt around the world. Before #MeToo was a mass movement, Ailes was among the first media giants to be toppled by accusations of sexual harassment. This career-spanning documentary is vital to understanding the power broker who will be studied for generations to come.
Filmmaker Alexis Bloom (WE STEAL SECRETS: THE STORY OF WIKILEAKS) charts the rise and fall of Ailes interviewing both allies and enemies.
