Storyline

This seven-part limited series from the bestselling book is about Roger Ailes, the founder of Fox News. To understand the events that led to the rise of the modern Republican party, one must understand Ailes. Focusing primarily on the past decade in which Ailes arguably became the party's de facto leader, the series also touches on defining events in Ailes' life, including his experiences with world leaders that gave birth to his political career, and the sexual harassment accusations and settlements that brought his Fox News reign to an end.

Trivia

Even if she'd wanted to, Gretchen Carlson could not have acted as a consultant to Naomi Watts for her portrayal of Carlson, due to a settlement agreement Gretchen signed in 2017 that prevents her from further discussing in depth what happened to her at Fox News. See more »

Loving It
29 July 2019 | by annlevtexSee all my reviews

Some are complaining that this is one-sided and "Anti-Fox." Well, for one, it is more about Ailes than about Fox. It follows his individual journey, which is mostly entangled in his creation of the Fox News division, but which also includes some.....messy personal stuff. Crowe immerses himself in the role as he always has, pulling off a great performance. The supporting cast is excellent, and Seth McFarland is wonderful to see in a dramatic (and slightly comedic, of course) role. Annabelle Wallis, to whom I never warmed at all in "Peaky Blinders," is very good in a strong supporting role. The other female cast members do a great job, even if Sienna Miller's role as Ailes' GF and future wife seems to make a sudden heel-turn, I later feel it was inevitable. They do a great job immersing us in the day-to-day chaos of the news cycle that the network is trying to dominate and conquer. I love the intensity of Ailes' interest in (as in obsession with ) Obama and his administration, and the delve into the rather grim childhood that he wrongly nostaligizes. They lay the groundwork for the Trumpism-to-come quite well, and I can say this even though I am not quite done with the series. One feels for and yet wants to shake those in his orbit or question and doubt him but cannot quite resist his toxic but compelling force. It depicts a moment that became a movement.....a. very unfortunate one.
