From tracing the career of Fox News founder Roger Ailes as he learned to manipulate racial politics while working on the presidential campaigns of Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush, to visiting a cruise ship in the middle of the Mediterranean where a senior Fox News executive admitted to telling Fox News viewers that Barack Obama was a socialist even though he did not believe the charge to be true, The Fox Effect dismantles once and for all the notion that there's any genuine meaning behind the network's "fair & balanced" slogan.

Using leaked internal emails and Roger Ailes' own writings, including a never-before-seen private letter, there has never been a more compelling summation of Fox's dangerous and destructive role in our democracy. This is not your standard media criticism book -- it's the definitive answer to every cousin, brother-in-law or neighbor who ever told you that Fox was their go-to place for news.
