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.

What happened after though?
19 November 2019 | by LeanneBarkerSee all my reviews

The story was "good" leading up to the final episode- but a whole second series/season could be done to satisfy the curiosity of what occurred afterwards... the few paragraphs posted at the end, really don't do much to appease an audience that watched this play out in real time; a "great" story would be one that covers the behind the scene frantic-antics that FOX had to put into motion to recover from this.

The acting was phenomenal. Everything was perfectly done- it just left you hanging with an empty void that could have been satisfied with 3 or 4 more episodes that showed how FOX handled the rest of the story.
