Cultural shifts can be brutal…depending on the person…
Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes is one that fuses the personal, the political and the just plain surreal as it charts the rise and fall of Fox News Chairman, Roger Ailes. Ailes (who was often called a kingmaker) was a key media consultant to Presidents Nixon, Reagan and George H.W. Bush, powerfully shaping American political history over the last fifty years. After creating a ratings powerhouse, with more viewers than all its direct competitors combined, in 2016 Ailes was forced out of Fox amid multiple allegations of sexual harassment. He died in May 2017 at the age of 77. It’s the origins of one of the most divisive figures in the American media landscape.
In this never ending, news cycle media landscape that we now live in and is shifting by the hour it’s interesting to see one of the innovators of all that and with Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes now in theatres and on demand it couldn’t be easier…that is unless you’d like to win an iTunes download code of the film courtesy of our friends at Mongrel Media.
