Synopsis / Plot
This documentary follows the rise & fall of Roger Ailes, controversial Fox News mogul & Republican king-maker. One of the most powerful & divisive figures in media, Ailes would go down in flames amid scandal, paranoia, & multiple sexual harassment allegations. 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.
