How Roger Ailes Broke the News - WhoWhatWhy
New Documentary ‘Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes’
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has made lots of money peddling slanted news as “fair and balanced” on his Fox News Channel. The man who built it, Roger Ailes, retired in disgrace in 2016 and died a year later. He changed American media in many ways, and used fear as a driving force at Fox — and earlier in campaigns for Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush.
Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes is a new documentary that debuts on December 7 in theaters and online. We talk with producer/director Alexis Bloom about Ailes’s early work as producer of The Mike Douglas Show, where he met Richard Nixon. When he worked for George H.W. Bush’s campaign in 1988, Ailes deployed the infamous Willie Horton ad in one of his early assaults on the liberals he saw as the enemies of his cause.

Documentaries aren’t journalism, and there’s nothing wrong with that - The Washington Post
At first glance, these films exemplify Todd’s docs-as-journalism theory: In the opening-night film, “G Is for Gun,” a small community in western Ohio grapples with the ethics, economics and efficacy of arming teachers as a response to school shootings. “Let My People Vote” follows a grass-roots activist in 2016 as he runs headlong into Florida’s law forbidding ex-felons to vote. Both are economical, lucid and informative, laying out the facts in a series of easily digestible vignettes and quotes.

But they also demonstrate why, in my conversation with Todd at AFI Docs, I vigorously pushed back on his desire to conflate two related but crucially different practices.

In defense of documentaries as journalism - Columbia Journalism Review
Still, Hornaday’s critique highlights a debate that has raged within the documentary filmmaking community since the form emerged nearly a hundred years ago: What is “truth”? And when capturing it, what role should filmmakers play? Revisiting the history of the modern documentary in the United States may shed some light.
