Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes

Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes ★★★

Money, power, and fame. That's what keeps men like this going. It's why Trump will run again in 2024. It's why he and O'Reilly are going on tour this fall. All three things go hand in hand, and men like this achieve them through creating division and stirring controversy. Take any one of the three things away, and like Ailes, those who thrive on them fade away.

One of the mentally healthiest things I've done in the past five years is to stop engaging with this content. I surround myself with friends and colleagues who'd rather talk about movies, relationships, and hobbies rather than politics and culture wars. This is a good documentary, but I am too far removed from this world to overly care about it. I'll watch stuff like this every once and a great while to appreciate how much better my life is without it.
