When Rupert Murdoch enlisted Roger Ailes to launch a cable news network in 1996, American politics and media changed forever. New York magazine reporter Gabriel Sherman brings Ailes’s unique genius to life, along with huge personalities—Bill O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly, Gretchen Carlson, Sean Hannity, the Murdochs, Glenn Beck, and others—who have helped Fox News play a defining role in the great social and political controversies of the past two decades. In revelatory detail, Sherman chronicles the rise of Ailes, providing a behind-the-scenes look at his crucial role as finder and shaper of talent. Drawing on hundreds of interviews with Fox News insiders past and present, Sherman documents Ailes’s tactical acuity as he battles the press, business rivals, and countless real and perceived enemies. Featuring a new Afterword about Ailes’s epic downfall during the extraordinary 2016 election, The Loudest Voice in the Room is a major feat of reportage with a compelling human drama at its heart.
