    Story

    The Fox Effect follows the career of Ailes from his early work as a television producer and media consultant for Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush. Consequently, when he was hired in 1996 as the president of Rupert Murdoch’s flagship conservative cable news network, Ailes had little journalism experience, but brought to the job the mindset of a political operative. As Brock and Rabin-Havt demonstrate through numerous examples, Ailes used his extraordinary power and influence to spread a partisan political agenda....

    Story
    Would you listen to The Fox Effect again? Why?

    Yes I would listen again to make a list of the names of some of the players to do additional research on their previous political dealings.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    the appalling arrogance of Ailes, and the horror that his behavior is seen as appropriate to a certain sector of society in these perilous times.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I found the narration clear and effective but slight slower paced than I would have preferred


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You won't believe what you're hearing, no, seriously, you won't believe it; because you've already made up your mind!


    Any additional comments?

    The people who most need to read this book will never buy it, Tea Partiers, ignore your confirmation bias and buy this book!
