I am a former television employee who was a senior executive in the network during the early 1980s and at the time of the Gretchen Carlson sexual harassment lawsuit in the fall of the same year. I am not a conservative Republican and I have always been a Democrat. This documentary was produced by the media watchdog group Media Matters for America. I would say the producer and the director did a good job of coming up with an idea and a story that could be of use to the viewers. However, the problem is that it was a rather long documentary. I think they could have made it a bit shorter. I would have liked to have seen a bit more of the relationship between Ailes and Carlson and how it came to be in the hands of Fox News. And it would have been nice to hear more about the other people who were on the air at that time. The fact that Ailes was only the president of Fox News at that time was mentioned in the film. A few people have also said that the sexual harassment story is a bit of a distraction from what's important. I think that's true, but it is not the main story. I also think that the focus on Carlson was a bit of a distraction from the rest of the story. I am glad that the filmmakers were able to get in front of the media and get the attention of the media that they needed to get this story out. That is why I think that the movie was very well made and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the issues of media bias and harassment.

If you have ever been in a situation where a junior employee is being promoted to a senior position and you're a career woman, the first thing you want to do is say "I would prefer to stay in my position". If you've ever worked in a department where the majority of people are male, you might wonder why the head of the department would be so concerned about your concerns. It might seem like a pretty selfish thing to do, but it's not. By taking the time to really listen to your female counterparts and their concerns, you can help the world. I love this film because it's so realistic, you can't help but feel for the women in the room. It's like an actual conversation with women. The only thing missing is some inspirational music. The most inspiring part of the film is when a woman says to her boss "I'd rather be a woman than a man". That's what I'd like to tell my boss at work "I'd rather be a woman than a man". That is what I would tell my boss if I was a woman.

As a proud former employee of Fox News and the news division of Fox, I thought I had to see this documentary. I found it to be very interesting and I am sure all of the people at Fox News will have similar feelings. The interviewees that are interviewed are very complimentary to Ailes. I am sure that the majority of those who do not like him will agree that he was a good person who was also successful at many levels. The documentary also highlights the many times that Ailes was forced to resign from his position as CEO due to political conflicts. The documentary is very interesting and will give you the opportunity to learn more about the person who is considered the father of cable news. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in the history of Fox News.

It is no secret that Roger Ailes has been accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault, but this documentary is an eye opener for those who are unaware of the disturbing history of this man. It is interesting to see the progression of his career from a young network executive to the person who brought the network to the top. I have seen many documentaries about Ailes, and this one is by far the best. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to know the truth about Roger Ailes.

A real eye opener. The only reason I did not give this movie a 10 was because I was reminded of a lot of the same issues I've been hearing about lately. I can't help but wonder if this movie will help create a new conversation about the Fox News Channel. I'm not sure how this will work but I am curious to see if it will. I'm not sure if the movie will be able to change the minds of some people but I'm sure it will. I hope that this film is able to bring some new information to those who haven't heard about it. I'm not sure what's in store for the future but I'm hoping that more of these type of films are made and that more people will be able to see them.

A very impressive documentary from independent film maker, Julianne Moore. It's also about one of the most powerful men in the world. Roger Ailes is one of the most influential and powerful media figures in the world today. The film covers how his first day on the job as the President of Fox News is very important and how his news coverage of the presidential campaign is highly influential. It also covers how his company became hugely successful. A lot of the interviews are with high profile people, like Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. It also covers how Ailes uses his wealth to influence people in politics and government. The documentary is very interesting and it's not at all boring. There's also some very interesting things about Ailes and Fox News. Overall this documentary is very well made. It's extremely well done and very well edited. It's also well directed. The film is very well done and it's very interesting and it's very well made. The only problem with the film is that it's a little bit too long. It's very long and it's not very exciting. There's also some things that don't really add anything to the film. Overall this is an interesting and well made documentary. I recommend it to anyone interested in how Roger Ailes became one of the most powerful media figures in the world today.
