|It's hard to believe this really happened... and it worked!|
Roger Ailes died on Thursday. There hasn't been much talk about it in the media. I can understand why. He was an extraordinarily divisive figure. The kind of guy who when when spoken of inspires fist fights in bars. I read Gabriel Sherman's 'Loudest Voice in the Room,' a topical biography of Ailes when it came out a few years ago. I highly recommend it.
Ailes was responsible for much of what is wrong with politics, and society, in America, and therefore the rest of the world, today. I'm going to keep this short, because I don't have anything nice to say about the man. But I strongly suggest reading Sherman's 'Loudest Voice,' and while your at it, David Brock's 'The Fox Effect,' if you would like to learn more about the man who played such an important role in making everyone's lives a little worse.
