Roger Ailes more or less invented modern political consulting and helped Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush win their races for the White House. Then he reinvented himself as a master of cable television, first as the head of CNBC and, since 1996, as the creator and leader of Fox News, the most influential news network in the country. Love him or hate him, no one can deny that Ailes transformed both politics and media.
Journalist Zev Chafets received unprecedented access to Ailes and his family, friends, and Fox News colleagues, including Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. The result is a candid, compelling portrait of a fascinating man.
"A tantalizing look into the life of a man who altered the TV-news landscape." -Kirkus Reviews
"Conservatives, who have struggled to connect with voters emotionally, and liberals, who instinctively revile and dismiss him, would do well to look closely at the factors that have contributed to Roger Ailes's enormous success." -National Review Online
