The world Roger Ailes made
When we released “Outfoxed,” in 2004, the clear and present danger Roger Ailes presented to democracy was not as patently obvious as it is today.
Roger Ailes made Donald Trump President.
Reality television and news were not always distinguishable, and that was what Ailes wanted.
Technology helps spread fake news around, but Ailes made it normal, made it acceptable, to believe what one wanted to believe.
In the meantime, remember Roger Ailes and pledge ourselves to vigilance in news consumption, in truth-telling and standing up to bullies, bigots and profiteers, be they behind the camera, or in front of it.
