Inflection Point 107: How Tyrants Rise to Power, the story of Roger Ailes
Fox News has paid out hundreds of millions of dollars to silence women who were sexually harassed and assaulted while working there.
The story of former Fox News President Roger Ailes’ rise to power and eventual downfall is the story of enablers: people who are willing to look the other way when a predator abuses people, and who are willing to step in and muzzle the victims he leaves in his wake. This story is still happening every day.
How do tyrants win such undying loyalty from others? And what will it take to refuse to stand by and let powerful men get away with anything they want?
I spoke filmmaker with Alexis Bloom, who directed the documentary, Divide & Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes.
