Gabriel Sherman tells the story of Fox News, including its launch Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch, Ailes's campaign-like management style and the ways in which Fox has become a dominant and lucrative force in American politics.
Gabriel Sherman traces the beginning of Fox News' success back to its wall-to-wall coverage of Monica Lewinsky. He says, "Ratings during the Lewinsky scandal exploded more than 400 percent, so you saw instantly that there was a market for this type of ... television." Sherman's book is called The Loudest Voice In The Room.
