DI­VIDE AND CON­QUER: THE STORY OF ROGER AILES

Regina Leader-Post - - YOU - Chris Knight

Roger Ailes helped make Fox News as its found­ing CEO. He helped make Richard Nixon, Ronald Rea­gan, Ge­orge H.W. Bush and Don­ald Trump pres­i­dent as a me­dia con­sul­tant and ad­viser. He re­signed from Fox in the wake of al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual ha­rass­ment, which con­tin­ued to ac­cu­mu­late even af­ter he left that post. And he died last year at 76.

Love him or hate him — and it’s fair to say that’s not a 50-50 split — there was much to say about the man, which di­rec­tor Alexis Bloom does in this por­trait of a right-wing su­per­star. Di­vide and Con­quer is avail­able on de­mand.

Roger Ailes is seen in 1968 dur­ing the Nixon cam­paign.
