How did we get here? This riveting new documentary charts the journey to our current tempestuous political moment through the career of a single massively influential figure: Roger Ailes. A one-time consultant to Presidents Nixon, Reagan, and George H.W. Bush, Ailes would have his biggest effect on American politics once he became chairman of Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News. Director Alexis Bloom probes deep into the formidable right-wing propaganda machine Ailes created, and the culture of misogyny that would lead to his professional downfall.

Impressive and absorbing…conveys a credible sense of Ailes’s psychology through the testimony of peers and co-workers who witnessed his ruthlessness firsthand.”
