Customers who bought this item also bought
“[An] actually fair and balanced, carefully documented biography.”—Jacob Weisberg, The New York Times Book Review
“The book excels at compiling data establishing Ailes’s control freakishness and authoritarian nature. . . . A veteran of the New York media-reporting scene, Sherman nails the Fox News palace intrigue and brings to light interactions that Ailes clearly never wanted to go public.”—Erik Wemple, The Washington Post
“[An] enormously entertaining new biography.”—The New Republic
“A thoroughly reported look behind that curtain . . . Part of the reason [Ailes] and his allies have campaigned against the book is not because it is false, but because it tells a true story.”—David Carr, The New York Times
“Sherman is at his best writing with sweep about the history of cable news and placing Ailes in context.”—Los Angeles Times
“[An] eye-opening biography of the would-be political kingmaker and Fox News mastermind . . . A well-reported, engaging book. A bonus: Bill O’Reilly won’t like it, either. Politics and media junkies, on the other hand, will have a field day.”—Kirkus Reviews

Top Customer Reviews
You will admire Roger Ailes for his talent, his incisive and thorough understanding of politics and media, and his drive and perseverance.
You will also get decisive evidence of Ailes' domineering, smearing, and paranoid manner and the way it drove his network and influenced politics for decades.
Ailes' sun may be setting, but his impact will remain. The biggest question for me is which institution he harmed more: the United States of America, or the Republican Party?
Whether you love Fox News or hate it, there is no denying that it has changed the dynamic of how news and opinion can be intertwined. Ailes understood that right wing demagoguery is more entertaining than left wing earnestness. Even many liberals would prefer to watch Bill O’Reilly than Rachel Maddow - it’s more fun to see your own blood pressure rise in response to some outlandish claim presented as fact than to be educated by rational argument.
I hope that Sherman is working on his next book on Fox News. Where will the next generation of Murdoch’s take the network? Will the line between news and entertainment continue to blur? Can Fox News personalities get work at the mainstream media outlets they have trashed? Will Megan Kelly become the most powerful woman in television? How will the Republican Party manage its dealings with Fox?
Sherman has the pedigree to answer these questions as the landscape evolves over the next year or so.
Then again - President Trump may make all this conjecture moot.
