Description

This is the story of America's Fox News Channel - the NewsCorp phenomenon headed by Roger Ailes that spurred the rise of the Tea Party, controls political debate in the world's superpower, and counts presidential candidates on its payroll. Fox News Channel generates $1 billion in annual profits. Yet the network, one of the past quarter-century's biggest business success stories, remains shrouded in mystery. Few understand its profound influence on American politics and world affairs. Gabriel Sherman, a reporter for New York magazine, has cultivated sources at the highest rungs of the company. This is a gripping book that will reveal the real story of Fox News, starting with the founding of the network in 1996 and tracing its meteoric ascent to the present, where it dominates the political landscape in the US and increasingly throughout the world.show more
