It is a series of dramatic events that embody the life of Roger Ailes, the founder of Fox News. The dramatic series explores Roger's political life through the past decade, in which Ails became a true leader of the Republican Party. In the final period of Roger's career, he was subjected to numerous charges of sexual harassment that ended his career at the time.
Ailes is largely responsible for our nation's rapidly growing political divides, but watching "The Loudest Voice," you're struck by its "only in America" vibe; one that is both our greatest gift and our least resistant path to destruction.
Every moment of catharsis you might feel while watching The Loudest Voice comes with a massive caveat. If you consider the battle over and won, then the loudest voice in the room will keep echoing from well beyond the grave.
At times, at least, the Showtime limited series produced by Blumhouse Television is a compelling, even artful, historical horror show out to remind viewers how "news" and politics were manipulated into the sorry state they're in today.
... More intent on probing the political and sociological impact of Fox News than the ferociously complicated psychology of the man who created it. It's a worthy mission, but it leaves the character at the center of the series at something of a distance.
