Unvarnished Impressions from Those Who Knew Him Best
Man in the Arena features interviews with major public figures who both knew and worked closely with Ailes.
It is rare that a sitting United States President participates in a documentary. It is equally rare for a sitting Senate Majority Leader, a former Vice President, Speaker of the House, or the Mayor of New York, to do so. Such is the testament to Roger Ailes’s influence and legacy.
Interviewees include: President Donald Trump, Vice President Dan Quayle, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker Newt Gingrich, Mayor Rudy Giuliani, civil rights leader Reverend Jacques DeGraff, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, former FOX and CNN anchor Kiran Chetry; and CBS News correspondent Lara Logan.
Roger Ailes’ family members and co-workers also give first-hand details of his life, times and ultimately his passing and legacy.
The result is a comprehensive insider’s view of one of the most dominant and controversial media and political figures of the last century.
