Roger Ailes was a news media pioneer who changed the nature of political discourse. In the process of creating a devoted audience, he angered both the right and left. An unquenchable, irrational thirst for power drove him; allegations of sexual harassment and of fostering a misogynistic culture at Fox News effectively ended his career less than a year before his death. 2018, USA, 107 minutes, documentary

Meet the Filmmaker: director Alexis Bloom (via Skype) in discussion with Bloomberg Opinion Editor Francis Wilkinson.

A well-researched and richly observant documentary from Alexis Bloom about the climate of lies and systemic abuse that nurtured Ailes and allowed his behavior to flourish.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“Alexis Bloom’s keenly insightful and deeply depressing documentary is probably best viewed not as a record of the past but a document of what’s to come.” – Chris Barsanti, Slant
