Roger Ailes film puts focus on Fox after he left

NEW YORK — More than two years after a sexual misconduct scandal forced Roger Ailes out at Fox News Channel and a year after his death, his ghost walks the halls of the network he built and ran for two decades.

Friday’s theatrical release of the documentary, “Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes,” puts his life story in the public eye again. Two other Ailes projects, a feature film from director Jay Roach and a Showtime miniseries, are also in the works.

Fox continues to be a financial success, yet questions have been raised about discipline there and whether it has aligned itself too tightly with President Donald Trump.
