*Possible spoilers* Roger Ailes, the man who many thought was the worst news executive in the history of television, was once an executive for Fox News. His main problem was a lack of input from the rest of the executive team. When he was let go, he took a job with Fox News and went on a rampage in the media world. He was fired and ridiculed by all the people who thought they were on to something. Some time after he left, he gave a commencement speech to his graduates and laid out his thoughts on the media and the people who run it. He spoke of the information being "information with an agenda" and warned his critics that they would be smeared if they were to voice their opinion. He said that those who "stood up to the media" were making enemies for the media and for America. A few months later he took a job with CNN and became the leader of a news organization that will likely never be as great as Fox News. A few months after that, he hired Bill O'Reilly to run Fox News. When it was announced that Ailes would be taking over CNN, many wondered if he would be a good choice for the job. Ailes proved that he was the right man for the job, and many believe he has succeeded in making CNN the powerhouse it is today. The views expressed in this documentary are his own, but with the help of many other people he has interviewed, he was able to put together a very insightful and entertaining documentary. Ailes was an incredibly talented man, and I do believe that his influence will be felt for a long time. If you want to see a documentary that shows how the media today is run, this is the one for you. If you are looking for information on Ailes, then don't bother with this one. There are plenty of other documentaries on this subject, and if you want to see a better, more up to date film on Ailes, then I would highly recommend that you look at "The Man Who Knew Too Little". The man who was fired from his job and hired by Fox News was interviewed extensively and had many different views on the media. The man who was fired from CNN and hired by CNN is interviewed extensively and has very different views. I suggest that you watch both films and come up with your own opinion on Ailes.

It's just a shame this is the ONLY film produced by the creators of the "ICM" with no network. I wish they could have produced more original content and produced more content more interesting than this piece. The film is a very interesting look at how FOX's Media News division, who have a passionate ideological obsession with controlling the media, will almost destroy their own media if it doesn't get their way, and will create a "Blame the Victim" ideology in the process. The only difference is that this film is produced by the left-wing "ICM" (Investigate it m'kay?) and Fox News, as opposed to the right-wing "ICM" (Investigate it! It's good!): the producer of the "ICM" and Fox News is none other than Roger Ailes himself. Ailes is the very epitome of right-wing propaganda and his plan to destroy the independent news media is his blueprint for the media takeover of America. And it's totally understandable: he is the only person who has ever successfully created an unbroken chain of successful media news companies in the history of journalism, and has the unique ability to hire any "wannabe" news organization he wants to without an ethical review and without even the slightest accountability. But don't let that fact fool you into thinking that this film is balanced: Ailes has a strong hand in the production of this film, and if he didn't, it would have been much more interesting, and probably had a better message. It's not easy to be neutral in these situations, and that's one of the reasons why the best "ICM" documentaries are the ones produced by the left-wing "ICM": they present the left-wing/media agenda in a balanced and responsible way.
