Magnolia Home Entertainment to Release “Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes” on March 12

Slated for release on March 12 is Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes (DVD: $24.99), available from Magnolia Home Entertainment. Directed by Alexis Bloom, the documentary fuses the personal, the political, and the just plain surreal as it charts the rise and fall of Fox News Chairman, Roger Ailes (1940-2017), a key media consultant to Presidents Nixon, Reagan, and George H.W. Bush, who powerfully shaped American political history over the last five decades. After creating a ratings powerhouse at Fox, with more viewers than all of its direct competitors combined, in 2016 Ailes was forced out amid multiple allegations of sexual harassment. Divide and Conquer tells the origin story of one of the most powerful and divisive figures in American media.
