"Today Gretchen. Carlson joins us on skimmed from the couch as a career journalist. She's also become an advocate for equality and dignity in the workplace. Carlson sued the former Fox News Chairman and CEO. Roger Ailes in two thousand sixteen. Her bombshell lawsuit ignited national conversations about sexual harassment and has inspired her advocacy work. We are very excited for this conversation Gretchen. Welcome to skin from the couch. Thanks for having me. I feel like I've known you guys for so long in. It's like so great to be able to have this discussion. So thanks for having me. So we're GONNA start our all interviews with just skim your resume for us. Oh my gosh well. I'll start with the latest editions which were never expected to be on my resume. Which are you know being one of the poster women for sexual harassment in the workplace? That's not necessarily something you aspire to when you're putting together your first resume and talking about goals and challenges in a life of head of you but I would say that what else has been on my resume over. My life has been series of accomplishments where challenges were in front of me and I really went for them and so the same thing is true for this latest endeavor that I've been doing for the last three years which is to really try and tackle this problem of workplace harassment. So that would be at the top of my resume. Now the very short version following that would be Fox News for eleven years before that five years at CBS news before that a lot of local markets including Dallas Cleveland Cincinnati and Richmond before that being the first classical violinist to be Miss America and before that studying at Oxford University getting my degree from Stanford University. Being High School Valedictorian and being a concert violinist as a child. See your super relaxed. I I know after. I've had some milestone birthdays. I become trying to become my new goal to be more chill and it's actually really liberating to be more relaxed and just let things sort of ebb and flow. Women are reared to be perfectionists and socialized to not color outside the lines. And I'm really really really trying to do more of that and advocating that for younger women as well. We've seen and heard a lot about you recently. Obviously we saw you on TV for years. And then we've seen movies depicting your story. What's one thing that you can't Google? You can't watch that people don't know about you. Oh my gosh all things I cannot do so I cannot whistle her. I think it's actually is genetic I can't do. You can't do that either. That is genetic okay so those two things. I can't parallel park. Oh Oh my gosh yeah. I only have done it once in my life to pass my driver's sixteen years old. Just got a card. That is supposed to be able to do that for me. But I haven't had time to set it up. Tesla I did. I've tried to it works. Oh my Gosh my relationship with driving. Oh my gosh okay so sometime this weekend or whenever I have time I need to really actually read the manual and figure that out I grew up a Chubby kid. I struggled with my weight for all of my teenage years and I actually feel that. That is really inspirational for young women especially today. Because they're so much more emphasis on exterior which. I always try to advocate for for young people and older women to that really. It's you know it's about what's inside. We should build our self esteem from the inside out. People look at television personalities. And you probably get the same thing with what you do that. They think that there haven't been any struggles or that they're just perfect and that certainly hasn't been the case with my life at all. I mean I really feel like successes truly appreciated when you've gone through struggles and failures and overcome those those hurdles. I totally agree one at just sort of take a step back. What was your family situation? What was your childhood like? Just Kinda give us who you were before you became a person on TV. Well I look at my family. Life is idyllic said small town in Minnesota with parents who believed in me and told me every day. I could be anything I wanted to be in this world and that was just incredibly important to hear that every single day they of course said with the caveat is GonNa take a lot of work and so I grew up with the Protestant Work Ethic. You know of incredible hard work. I also grew up with huge philanthropic spirit. My grandfather was a minister. My parents truly believed in giving back to the community and I think that that's the greatest gift that I can pass along to my two teenage children to understand that to truly be a whole individual. It's about giving to others. That was a huge part of my upbringing and a huge part of the work. I'm doing now and where that came from. How quickly did you realize did other people realize you were a violin prodigy that came about as a total fluke? I actually apparently? According to my parents I would hear commercial sort of songs on TV. And I would go in. Plunk them out on the piano. And my mom's like I think we need to get her piano lessons and then we went up the street to piano teacher. Who's our neighbor and she said. Oh she'll never be any good at piano. Hands are way too small and so why don't you go up to the local school and you know talk to them about a different instrument and I've got my first violin and it was just tiny you know it was like a foot long and I started playing it and it just clicked. It just became who I was. What's it like to be really good at something that young? I loved it. It taught me discipline. Where even if you put in ten minutes or thirty minutes a day got better at something and for kids at so important. Because that's something carried with me for the rest of my life that discipline I think about every single day release shaped however approached everything else in my life. It's something nobody can take away for me. It's a talent. It's something that I have made by myself and nobody can ever take that away and I think that's so crucial especially for young people today to be able to hone skills that they own. You went on to go to some of the most prestigious schools in the world and then became Miss America lightly. We talk us. They're like WHOA. Is that light Unexpected never on my radar screen. What's my mother? When I was seventeen I burned out on the violin and I quit and my parents were devastated and so I went off to concentrate academics and when I was doing some time over at Oxford University in England and got a phone call from my mom. She had gotten a brochure in the mail. On the Miss America Organization. She called me and she said I found something for you to do. I said what and she described to me. She said it's fifty percent talent. You have that it's thirty percent interview. You're smart you can do this and I'm like yeah mom but I'm also short I'm also from Minnesota which is not pageant state. I also played classical violin. And that's never one and I've never been patches ever before and nor have ever watched them and she was like well. I think you can do this. And my mom's an incredibly influential person in my life and is my sharp critic but also my biggest cheerleader was her motivation and wanting she wanted me to play the violin again. I mean that one hundred percent. This was to try and get me back onto my music career and so you know she and I became a team. I stopped out a Stanford my senior year because I realized if I was going to actually do this to do it. One hundred fifty percent had to give it one hundred and fifty percent and I couldn't be doing my studies at Stanford and tried to prepare fascinating and I want to just pause for a second because I would say you doing that. It's probably going against the popular decision or assumption Which is going against the grain. A little bit too. Like you know what? Actually I'm going to prioritize this. A lot of people would say stay in school. And obviously we're going to talk about how you went against the grain and other parts of your life talk just like what your personality was at that time what. Your confidence level was at a time. Well it was pretty high because I had done tremendous amount of violent competitions which by the way I never faced any gender discrimination or sexism with regard to that all they picked to play the best. They didn't care if you're a girl or boy and the same thing with my academics. I never any kind of discrimination early on in my life and so I was used to setting high standards and high goals and this was something that I knew nothing about but my mom and I really researched it from afar. Instead of participating. In a lot of competitions we researched it and we realize that for me if I was going to try and really try and achieve this that I couldn't be doing these two things at the same time when I went to tell the Dean at Stanford who happened to be a woman and I told nobody what I was doing by the way when I went to tell her though because I had to. She told me she thought it was the stupidest thing she'd ever heard of. And I said well okay. Let's see how it let's see how it turns out. Listen there's a tremendous amount of subjectivity in these kinds of competitions and lock and all of that but I needed to be truly prepared in order to have a chance. Say You win. You go on to become a journalist and you ultimately make the jump to Fox News where you become the Co host of the number one cable news morning show. You were there at a time at the network when it was just skyrocketing when you started there. Did you understand the impact? The network would have and the direction it would take. As kind of the cultural force that it became. Never I went there because it was an opportunity to a morning show five days a week. I was at CBS. When I originally went CBS. I was a correspondent. I was traveling the world. My goal and television was always to do a morning show. The goal was always to be able to do a show that incorporated hard news. Where he could showcase your your smarts but also showcase your sense of humor and lighter things and so I got the opportunity finally at CBS to do their weekend morning show and then when the Fox opportunity came about to do five days a week I mean that was just really what I had worked so hard to achieve and so I went over there you know as a as a total novice and Fox was just sort of starting out. At the time I learned a tremendous amount from cable because cable was totally different than network news in the sense that it was almost all ad Lib on their forget one of the first days I was there and I was doing a different show than the morning show and one line came over the AP wire that said something about that. The person that had assassinated leader in the Middle East been caught and the producers said to me in my ear. Just go with this for like three minutes. I was like what I don't even know who they're talking about. I don't even know if I can pronounce this name and I just had to dig deep and luckily my life. I had a lot of experience at doing that. Not exactly in this realm but I just started talking and it made me realized from that day. Forward that wow this whole different craft when you're at living and not reading teleprompter and so cable news is just a completely different talent than what I had been doing before. So we'll say that that was extremely beneficial to me to grow as a person and to get better at my
Bombshell: Charlize Theron on 'Wrapping Her Head around' Megyn Kelly
"Listening. Ascended the frame Oscar special. I'm John Horn host of the frame on KABC in Los Angeles. And I'm here with Jacquelyn coli editor at rotten tomatoes. Let's now turn into. Charlie's Thera in bombshell which she also produced theran plays former Fox News anchor. Megan Kelly who partners with other women at that network to take down the founder Roger Ailes. It's like we're telling women go on. Speak up for yourself just know. The entire network is with Roger. No one will believe you. They'll call you a liar. Oh and as for your career you want the Simon's airtime go ahead hall the Paranoid Man who decides your salary pervert and do that. On a anonymous hotline. He controls on on a phone. has a contractual right to record. Jesus Christ you Think Women Are Idiots. Honestly I was completely mesmerized by bombshell I was actually one of the biggest fans ends of the movie. It was kind of a bit critically divisive. I think not a lot of people liked giving some humanity to Megan Kelly but I personally found shelley's performance to be incredible and just kind of had to say about the balls it took for her to take on that role to produce it herself and to say that she wanted to tell this me too story I did talk with Charlie's an end. She told me why she wanted to make the film and why it was important to make it now. The script was written pre. Eh Time's up pre Harvey Weinstein. There wasn't any of what is out there right now in our culture as far as this conversation it's it felt else somewhat like a story in its own silo But but people were definitely kind of whispering about a lot of what what was about to come out and so you could feel it you could feel there was like this kind of like under this bubbling that was happening in the pot was about to boil over. We definitely felt that and so when we read the script we were aware a little bit. I mean nobody could predict how big all of this would be but we were aware that there was something timely about the script. How would you describe I bought? This movie is about it. It's a movie about a group of very unlikely women who if you were you know writing the fictional story you would not necessarily cast as your central characters to tell a story of taking down the biggest media mogul And yet if they did why were they unlikely. Do you think we'll because I think a lot of them You Know Gretchen. And and Megan had made some comments comments prior to all of this about sexual harassment that I found not necessarily helpful to the cause of a lot of women who are experiencing sexual harassment. I think there there is a conservative conservative view on sexual harassment. As how do you believe women. How do you know what's true how the emphasis is always on doubting the victim victim doubting the woman and I just thought it was interesting that they had had those views before in the past about sexual harassment? Megan Kelly Famously Asli Refused to be called a feminist. You know they are somewhat than most unlikely feminists that you will find. That was Charlene Charlie Farren. She's nominated for her. Lead role in
Charlize Theron on the Power of ‘Bombshell’
"But we're GONNA start today with Charlie's there. She's The star. Dr Producer of the upcoming movie bombshell Ferron Plays Megan Kelly in the film in her time at Fox News and later with a very brief stint then on the today show on NBC. Kelly came under fire more than once for some controversial comments that another person claiming it's racist to have a white Santa you know and by the way for all you kids watching at home. Santa just is white but this person is just arguing that maybe we should. We should also have a black Santa but you know Santa is what he he isn't just so you know we're just debating. This movie bombshell focuses. Not only on Kelly but also on other women at the network including former Fox. News host Gretchen Carlson. She Sued Fox News head. Roger Ailes for sexual harassment. But she wasn't alone ails harassed. A number of women At the network bombshell was nominated for four SAG awards this week including Best Ensemble cast includes Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie. I talked DOC TO CHARLOTTE. Is there in the morning that the SAG nominations came out. I want to be cool and talk like I'm just so not affected by any of Finney was pretty fascinating and it was really great. It was a great moment. This this film only exist because of the ensemble. How would you describe what this movie is about it? It's a movie about a group of very unlikely women who if you were you know writing a fictional story you would not necessarily cast as your central characters to tell a story of taking down the biggest media mogul And yet they did. Why were they unlikely? Do you think we'll because I think a lot of them You Know Gretchen. And and Megan had made some comments almonds prior to all of this about sexual harassment that I found not necessarily helpful to the cause of a lot of women who are experiencing sexual harassment. I think there there is a conservative conservative view on sexual harassment is. How do you believe women? How do you know what's true? How the emphasis is always on doubting the victim them doubting the woman and I just thought it was interesting that they had had those views before in the past about sexual harassment? Megan Kelly famously. Asli refused to be called a feminist. You know they are somewhat than most unlikely feminists that you will find. No one Megan Kelly had said had some very problematic things about campus assaults and whether or not the men were not believed and that the women were believed to easily. I guess exactly a harsh but fair way to raise her position. You read Charles Randolph script for bomb. Show what was your reaction and what was going on In your professional career when you came across it you know I was We had a lot of things at Denver and Delilah by my production company and Development and we very strangely really. We were In Development on a project with Jay Roach who ended up directing Bombshell and we read it and just really I really loved it. I mean you have to understand. The script was written. Pre Time's up pre Harvey Weinstein. There wasn't any of what is out there right now in our in our culture as far as conversation it's it felt somewhat Story in its own silo But but people. We're definitely kind of whispering about a lot of what was about to come out and so you could feel it. You could feel there was like kind of like under the this bubbling that was happening in the pot was about to boil over. We definitely felt that and so when we read the script we were aware I mean we. Nobody could predict how big all of this would be but we were aware that there was something timely about the script. It's like we're telling women Golan speak up for yourself just know the entire network is with Roger. No one will believe you. They'll call you a liar. Oh and as for your career you want the Simon's airtime go ahead call the paranoid man who decides your salary pervert and do that. On a anonymous hotline. He controls on a phone. has a contractual right to record. Jesus Christ you Think Women Are Idiots. We're talking with Charlene Darren. Who is an actor in and and producer of the new movie bombshell? was there a point where you felt. You found something from with inside you as an actor that connected you on some level to Megan Kelly. That wasn't part of her physical appearance. Yeah I mean listen when we started. I'd never ever thought I would ever say that much in common with Megan can Kelly. We have different point of views on on on a lot of things. So we'll just leave it at that But I through research. We started realizing that she was talking about a lot of Things that I could relate to as a woman in my industry strea- you know we definitely live in a world where men are rewarded and applauded for being ambitious and for being powerful and for having drive and for not taking no as an answer and and sometimes being the the not nice person in the room. Because that's the right thing to do you and it's right for the for the company and it's right for for your business and when women tend to have those qualities They very easily can be turned around and weaponized tonight against you or turn around into a negative and write a man is driven. A woman's a bitch. Yep there you go So that's that's where I think I emotionally tapped in to this part Megan. Kelly was part of something that was just really kind of mind blowing. That happened at Fox but The every day going to work the process the being called a bitch. When you're just trying to be the best at your job? All of those things felt very familiar to me as a woman. I related to those things and I could empathize empathize with a woman. Like that being a position that Sh- she found herself in having to struggle with the idea of coming forward and losing losing all of that and is that to you. The clearest line between what happened to make Kelly what happens to actresses in Hollywood. The difference between Roger Ailes Awesome Harvey Weinstein. Where do you see the most direct link between what's in this movie and what's in show business? Oh it's to me it. It's it's all a direct linked. I mean they I feel like this issue does not you know it doesn't behave or look at different in different places just because of the industry it is a non partisan issue this is this is really a a human right to feel safe in your workplace whether you work at Fox where you work at CNN or you work in Hollywood or you work at a bank in Minnesota or a mine in Minnesota. This is a human right that we should all have. Charlie's thanks so much for show. Thank you so much for having me. Charlie's Teheran Stars in and as a producer on bombshell it opens in theaters on December twentieth. You're listening to the frame weekend. I'm John

Showtime's 'The Loudest Voice' Tells The True Story Of The Downfall Of Roger Ailes At Fox News
"The loudest voice. It's the new Showtime miniseries. Stories about the rise and fall of Fox News and particularly of Roger Ailes, the infamous founder of Fox News. Seth plays a character real life character named Brian Lewis. He was the head of public relations at FOX for many years. He came with Roger Ailes from CNBC when Roger was launching, Fox News. And he was most people would tell you the right hand of Roger Ailes. He was the pit bull. He guarded the company's internal business for Roche ously could be very tough with reporters obviously, but also anybody who tried to crack into the Fox News bubble. I think you'll be interested to hear Sestri bestirred drawing when he was two years old. He wrote a letter to Jim Henson studios when he was nine years old announcing that he was going to be a puppeteer and a cartoonist a kid who kind of knew what he wanted to be from the age of two and, you know, he gets into how do you do that? You have the dream when you're a kid, you move onto the Rhode Island school of design as he did. And. He was hired right away. They recognize his talent out to Hollywood worked on an animated show for a couple years before, again, when he was twenty four years old. He started family guy, which, by the way was cancelled twice was, not an immediate hit, I think people forget that. So to set the scene for you Seth and I got together at cafe. Carlyle at the famed Carlyle hotel in New York City. The cafe Carlyle is a jazz club. Seth has performed there a couple times because on top of everything else begin things that are scary. He sings in public. He's got five albums, including his latest once in a while, and he's been nominated for four Grammy award. So I got him to sit down at the piano, we got him to play a little bit sing a little bit. Do the thing that Seth MacFarlane does, but mostly to walk through fascinating life in fascinating career where the guy just does something different and surprises people all the time, a great conversation with Seth MacFarlane. We start by talking about the loudest voice, the series on Showtime. About Fox News. Thanks for doing this man for sure. So we've already gotten I think halfway through the show already we'll will start for the benefit of the viewers again. Yeah. I want to start with your character before we talk big picture, because I don't think most people know who he is. In fact, I know most people don't know, who is if you don't live in our media world Brian Lewis, who was he. And why is it important character in this big story, Brian Lewis was Roger Ailes PR chief for Fox News? And he also sort of functioned as his right hand man, and a lot of ways you know, this, this was the guy that Roger would blow off steam, too. And, and also the guy who was comfortable enough keeping keeping them in line when he may be got a little too off the rails. And, you know, according to the to Gabe chairman's book, and according to the series, he was also a guy was who was kind of on the outside of the. Emotional end of things. He was he was he was a democrat. Chocking way, working for Fox News. But more importantly, he was kind of a gun for hire. He was there because, you know, it was a good job and the ethics of it didn't really come into play. It was about, you know, being Boba fett. I guess. Liberal hire me, then he's a bounty hunter. So how did he to the extent? You got inside his head by reading the book. How did he reconcile knowing what he was doing was often wrong unethical? Yes. Doing the job. Well, I mean according to the material that I read that he, he at the end of the day he was. He could compartmentalize, he could put his family over here and his job over here, and essentially be two different people. But at a certain point. You know, he he idolized ales for a long time, and he really respected ails, as a marketer. And as as a as a promoter of whatever it was he wanted to promote. And he, I guess must have started to see him unraveling a little bit. And. It was probably a combination of genuine concern. Because there seemed to be a conscience there. And, and professional concern that, okay, I worked for this guy this reflects on me and, and he's starting to come apart at the seams.

"roger ailes" Discussed on Skullduggery
"Megan Kelly, does not defend Roger Ailes. In fact, she says that she has her own stories, but this is all kind of behind the scenes, she has a channel to Lachlan Murdoch. And at that point, I think James, and luckily and get the opportunity to oust him they have long wanted to get rid of him. They this stories I was told off the record about dinners for twelve people when they do some celebrately, you know, FOX dinner, and it's all, you know, repairs chains Lackland Rajah the head of accounting the head of advertising, but sort of the core in a circle, and nobody wants to sit next to Raja this awkward, you know, see chuckle because Roce eats like a pig, and is fouled and nobody wants to sit next. Nobody really likes him. And he's. And he's clearly paranoid. And I think that the at by that stage, they thought FOX could run well enough without him and the liability of Roger exceeds his value. I guess his last day and his chauffeur is driving him up to the Fox News headquarters in midtown Manhattan. And they get the the driver gets the notice keepdriving around the block. Yeah. And then and then they lock him out of the office walked out of the office. He the the news network that he created he's sort of barred from even setting foot in and Sarah Ellison. The who you interviewed. There. She says they took him out a drone strike. It's perfect. And they did. And you know, there's like the family, and as a gangsta, and there's like the Yuba gangsta, you know, and, you know, the family wins the Murdoch's limit, you know, he's not a Murdoch or how will he be remembered? Don't know. I mean at the moment he's better known for his sexual harassment than anything else. I don't think his legacy is going to be a glorious one. I've only it's about to be completely redefined because they're two enormous Hollywood projects coming down the pike. People will probably get him confused with Russell Crowe who's about to play him on this cow. Who's about to play him for a new film by Roach before any of our listeners, see, those they should watch Alexes truly absorbing an important film divide and conquer the story of Roger Ailes Alexis.

"roger ailes" Discussed on Skullduggery
"Was flirting nonsense only Roger Ailes. I knew that I had to respond pretty powerful stuff. And I think you document in the movie there were dozens of women throughout experiences like that with Roger Ailes. We don't know how many there were to be honest. The behavior can be traced from the Mike Douglas show all the way through the very end of FOX and its numerous, and it's transactional, and some of it is to heck hurling and some of it is very pedestrian and quid pro quo. It's clearly a behavior that he engaged in from. From his early twenties right to the end despite him being sort of physically incapacitated. He was a serial abuser of women. How did he get away with it money? I'd say explain I mean, you know, I think at first if you look back at the sixties and seventies. Paps the the culture was different there and women didn't come forward in the same way. And eat didn't have the money that he had later on. So there's a variety of reasons why that kind of behavior could have been covered up. Not noticed Leon certainly at FOX. It was money. He was making a billion dollars a year plus a billion. Yeah. I mean, he was making pus any. But the company was yeah. The company was and nobody wanted to know repeat Murdoch explicitly said don't look too closely in roaches books. Don't you know? Doesn't scrutinize. He's making us money. Yes. He's a controversial character butts. He's all man. So they enabled him Russia appointed his own legal counsel. Diane brandy. He had an incredibly loyal head of PR Irena against both of whom are still that by the way, who you know, cost stories that would negative about FOX or planted stories that were slurs on people who criticizing FOX glueing slurs on some of the women coming correct, I yeah, he must have also sounds like he created a fairly fearful environment. He retaliated against women. He kept them from getting their jobs. There are people someone in the movie is quoted as saying that I was believed or was told that he had the offices bugged. So if anything critical or if you said that you were supported. Hillary clinton. You would be fired. So he surveillance deal to him. He ruled with fear. Yes. So Meena combination. I'd have to say fear. You know, like the best cult leaders. You have fear, and you have a bit of Chom to you can't be, you know, Kim Jong kind of like marching about the place you have to be a bit more charismatic than that's an people comment on his ability to be folksy and cracking jokes can reach out to you. So tell us about his downfall how he got caught. And how he got booted out Gretchen Carlson had been recording him scratching causes a very astute person as she was a Fox News, Fox News host and her contract had not been renewed. But prior to this she'd been recording him and she launched a suit against him, personally, not against FOX out of states in New Jersey and. They were gonna you know, FOX was going to investigate narrowly what had happened. So interview like a very small group of people around Gretchen Carlson. This was the initial plan, and it could have been at that stage that nobody would have corroborated her story. It would have somehow been settled or battled in cold. Or would not have led to his ouster that he could have successfully fought it off. However, the key moment comes when James and Lachlan Murdoch who have never liked Russia rails, in any way, shape or form. Get the opportunity to broaden the investigation and bring in pull vice. So the law firm the law firm. Yeah.

When he lands at Sun Valley where they're all at a conference that make business and they presented to him almost like a complete well pull vices coming in.

"FOX and friends. Explain the relationship and was this all dictated by ales to his to his TV network. Put this guy on all the time. Nothing happened at FOX without roaches say so and he knew about everything that happened. So that's the first thing to understand Glenn Beck says Roach trails, walls, FOX and FOX was Roger Ailes. And that's absolutely true. Russia knew that went on Trump went on Fox News. That was a spike in ratings. He used to obsessively look at rate. Eatings Alison Cammarata says this ratings Don in fifteen minute increments. And Roger would know exactly when ex-guest guest went onto the ratings go up or did the ratings go down. Donald Trump had a weekly colon every Monday, and the ratings went up he was on every FOX show every major show, Hannity Riley, Greta van Susteren, we show, you know, he went to baseball matches with awry, Lee and Russia rails. He was deep in FOX Roach enabled Donald Trump to pivot from garden variety fame. I'd say apprentice fame and media mogul fame to political legitimacy, and that was that bets doesn't take a genius to see that just, you know, for those of us who would not watching FOX at the time. We were surprised that Donald Trump an ounce his candidacy, and it was taken somewhat seriously. But folk, you know, view is FOX..

"And everything you learned in, you know, kind of hard nosed politics to try to, you know, put in Republicans in the local government. Why did he need to do that? I mean, he was a kingmaker in national politics. He was getting a president elected. What was the need to do this in a tiny town? Upstate New York. I mean, again, I don't I'm not a psychologist. I just can't pretend to know what goes on inside him, but he was striking to you incredibly striking. I mean, the man has every day filled with conflict in a professional capacity. And then he goes to his country house on the weekend and replicates that it wasn't the money spent fan he did spend money buying the national at buying the local paper picking a candidate to run for local office giving that guy new clothes putting up billboards printing out pamphlets, but it's the energy. It's the time and the energy down to bullying. The local copy Edita hacking into her Facebook account. Why would you want to hack into the Facebook accounts of a puff pleasant copy editor who worked for you who decided to leave? I mean, she had done nothing to him. And he was consumed. I mean pettiness where you see play is is is pettiness is sort of control free kore-. I don't think that that's a phrase, but it is now and desire to. Create the world in his image. So as long as we're talking about bullies and pettiness let's go back to the relationship with Trump. And what that relationship was like and how Roger Ailes went about making Donald Trump president because you show in the movie, give us a real glimpse of the constant appearances of Trump on Fox News,.

"I mean, he was one of the hottest work is out there. You know, he was hugely influential Mitch McConnell springs to mind surprise me in the film. I didn't realize that he was the media advisor to a great story. When he's he's like, a state judge or municipal judge or something and he's running for Senate. I guess and they're filming this commercial on the wake up until that story feeling commercial in the lake. They're trying to make him look a bit more folksy than I think he naturally is. And he's in fishing boats. Pretty. Yeah. You know, he likes the challenge. So then Roach puts the fish on the hook. And then gives the line to Mitch McConnell and Mitch McConnell sitting in the boat actually with a robber Dokie, kind of hats on Mitch McConnell dorky. The filming him. And this little voice can be heard like what do I do? Now. Profanity on this. And then roaches says, you know, real in the fucking fish, and he and he reels in the fish, literally and metaphorically, and he's elected, and it's a huge upset. Nobody expected him to be elected. And he's, you know, forever grateful to tails, and that's that's key. You know, yet all these people in his Rolodex. When he went to folks, you know, he had incredibly deep roots in the in the Republican party, all the leadership owed Hw Bush should mention campaign, Willie Horton. Well, we'll you know when when Roach die Joe change W Bush tweeted, I didn't know he had a Twitter account. But he tweeted I loved Raja I would have been president without him. Wow. Yeah. That's interesting. Especially to hear this week. Yeah. Yeah. All the Bush tributes actually now. And I think you make this clear in the film when people think of the Willie Horton ad and the depiction of. Willie horton. Who does look like a truly scary fellow that wasn't the ad that Roger Ailes made. Right. It's so duplicitous the whole thing because you know, they could never pin the ad with the photograph on Roja. It was vintage Roach to deny that he did that advocate with Willie Horton's mug shelter knits. But he did many commercials with Willie Horton in it and the people who did the commercial with a mugshot with all of his closest colleagues and friends Larry McCarthy Lee atwater. So it's like saying, you know, I didn't do it. But the guy sitting to my left. Did it wasn't me. It wasn't mean. They will all the same cabal. And I find it, you know, beyond credulity that he didn't know about it. Right. So that's eighty elect the H W as president. And then in the nineties he wants to. Get into the talk TV business and start something called America's talking wants to go back to entertainment, go to remember that like, you know, he grew up as this haemophiliac watching TV he was on the Mike Douglas show. He he sort of heat described politics is at detail. He's then, you know, reinvents himself as the head of this talk show channel America's talking gives himself zone show. If wanted to get in front of the camera, I have to say, I love I don't know was that actually him tap dancing. No. No. He is he took tap dance. Of that sort of Broadway persona. Yes. Edition. Did he did he launched the the network on the fourth of July? It was all American all the time ferry upbeat very positive his sort of question of the day was always what's America talking about today? And it was variety shows pet shows chose about sex, you know, but but all very positive folks had a very Chipper cousin. It would be that, you know, still the same kind of emphasis on America and being patriotic populist. But not. Yes. Exactly interesting. Yeah. And then in nineteen ninety six I believe it is. Yeah, Fox News FOX, you say he gets sort of ousted from America's talking because they sell it to Bill Gates, and they he's not included in the boardroom discussions, and he's he's like mightily pissed off they say to him you can carry on in your capacity as head of America's talking, but we won't eat to know that Bill Gates. Is now part of the equation. We can have rebranded as MSNBC, and it's going to be bit mo- news -i and since we can swell. I'll just quote directly. In case. My mom is listening to this. I did not say these words myself, but Roach said to a friend, I'm gonna fuck them..

"He becomes active in politics and TV and eventually goes onto found and create Fox News. But just sort of walk us through the. Ecology show. I mean, you know, so many people don't know who wrote trails as I did have previous film on Carrie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds, and it was gratifying to like people say what do you account Carrie Fisher, and Debbie? And then you know, we throw to rails. We slight who. And then when they you know, if they ever did clock who he was it was like, oh that guy for sexual harassment. Right. There's I know what he's so much more than that. You know, he's a great American fig out. Great and inverted commas, you know in the region. Yes. Not marley. Great. But in the you know, he was a significant American figure grew up in Warren, Ohio. He died when he was seventy seven last year two thousand seventeen he was one of the youngest produces on the Mike Douglas show, which was a big entertainment variety chat show, every star in America was on that we sort of show, you know, share politicians like, Richard Nixon, you know, Paul Newman, Alfred Hitchcock, everyone if you anyone you were on the Mike Douglas show at some point in your life. And he was one of the youngest produces that he met Richard Nixon there and at and you know, cornered him in the dressing room. Mm. So goes the story told by rotor and side note, he was prone to being somewhat of a fabulous. So you have to take it with a little pinch of salt real. Yes. Roger Ailes was not one hundred percent truthful. Talk shocking. If that's an e. Yeah. Yeah. In some ways his genius was seeing that American politicians and people were running for president that they would need television to succeed. Right. He said to Richard Nixon if you don't take ten vision. Seriously, you're going to lose again. Of course, he lost in nineteen sixty some might say, yeah. Because of television. Yeah. JFK was gorgeous. Composed and polished and look like a leader and Nixon looked like a fumbling nut who was ill and profusely sweating and also shows that he was he was an opportunist window sees that misses an opportunity, you know. He's cami. So he he meets Nixon. He tells me needs a meteorite vise. A he then becomes his media adviser sick. You know, very successful. Richard Nixon gets elected he then leaves the world of entertainment and starts on the on a career Nixon sixty eight campaign. I well remember reading as a kid the book Joe by Joe McGuiness the selling of the president. Roger Ailes pops up quite prominently there as the guy who's advising Nixon on his media strategy. How to come across as sort of informal and spontaneous what we're actually highly scripted television commercials. In which he's answering questions from the audience. And also you see the roots of his skills as a propagandist. Because he studying the movies of Leni Riefenstahl's triumph of the will. And and actually even mimicking the camera angles from from that movie when he's filming Nixon taking his cues from a Nazi propaganda. But he does it like Simmons. No. I mean, they would you know, we studied Riefenstahl at journalism schools in Berkeley in nineteen ninety. So that that stuff doesn't get old. They were very very good at it. Not to be too controversial. But they were you know, sort of the pioneers of that propagandistic film. They were you know, conscious that the angle was everything how to make a very Stompie kind of comedic looking person like Hitler, look heroic. I mean that was that was a challenge. So they had to have, you know, low camera angles where he looked told than he walls and extend the camera like across his arm. So you saw like the length of his arm, and then going from that, you know, the thousands of people who gathered from around him, it was a seminal work. And and it was it was important to understanding how politicians could be made either better and grandma affair or sixty eight ails helps elect Richard Nick. As president. And he becomes known as a political consultant media advisor to Republican politicians yet, he does and he works on campaigns from the grassroots to the to the presidential office. You know at congressmen senators may as criss crossing the country, you know, in in our film. I think Felicia shook him and who worked at Ailes communications, which was his kind of consulting firm said they did fourteen races and fourteen days..

"So I went into Roger's office. And I said I'm leaving. And he said, nobody leaves. And I said, yeah, you know, what you're saying. Just say something because I know how this is going to and here. So just let me say this to you, no matter what. Thank you. I said thank you for giving the conservatives a chance to have a voice. And I and he looked at me and his eyes welled up and that meant something to him that somebody actually. Sought that way. I said to Roger so what are you? What's next for you? So why are you still here? And he said still have still have a president pick. I still have a president to pick. Wow. That's a scene from the new documentary divide and conquer the story of Roger Ailes made by our guest, Alexis Blume, Alexis. Welcome to skulduggery. Thank you so much for having me here. What a great name for a podcast. Isikoff came up with it because he knows the thing or two about skulduggery and no shortage in Washington, especially these days. So this your film, which is in theaters starting Friday. Yes. That's right, seventh go out and see at absolutely fascinating. Look at a guy who may have been the most powerful man in the media. Roger Ailes who seems even had delusions that he was bigger than that one of the most powerful man in the country. Tell us how you came to make this movie, and why we came to make this movie because it became sort of increasingly apparent that. We live in roaches world. Prior to the election of Trump Pryatta, even Gretchen Carlson launching her suit against Rochester prior to the sexual harassment allegations, Alex Gibney, and I will looking at doing a film in this spear. Whether it was Joe, whether as Rupert Murdoch, it seemed to be very unexplored avenue, and he was a fascinating character himself on a more granular level sort of as a psychological portrait, it would make a great film. So it seemed it seemed to no brainer because he's important both on this big landscape level, how profoundly he's affected American American, politics and American culture and also on this granular sort of citizen Kane like level just going to say the citizen Kane analogy really came to me watching it. He is a citizen a real life. Citizen Kane figure, and your film sort of captures his rise astonishing rise and his very dramatic fall. In a kind of paranoia that you saw with Kane as well. There's really starting actually I wanted to follow up on that. Because what I was thinking about as I was watching. It was it was this a case of power corrupting and absolute power corrupting. Absolutely. Did you see this? When you were researching his life going back to when he was a small child Seve's of this. Was there a Rosebud moment that for told the Roger Ailes that he would become mean not avoid the question. But I think the two things can be true at the same time. I think pallet Dow's corrupt and you saw that influence on him. He he became utterly corrupted and enabled and facilitated by just the bags of money and success and everything that he generated but in his. Early life. He he had demons. He he was a hemophiliac. So I don't get an easy childhood in the nineteen fifties growing up in Warren, Ohio. There was no Kiffa hemophilia. They had treatments, but they were ineffective. I was fascinated by that. I did not know that he suffered from hemophilia. And it you wondered if that created a kind of apocalyptic world for him that at any moment, if you're haemophiliac you can buy I mean, that's what his friends said about him. I mean, I'm not a psychologist, and I don't pretend I think that's sort of dangerous ground. But if you go by what his friend said, they said that he was acutely aware of his own mortality, and his he has a friend called Austin Pendleton, who's wonderful sort of character actor well known on Broadway, characterized by his kindness, very liberal strange bedfellow for Russia rails to have and Austin says that that's a line in a streetcar named desire. Where the opposite of death is desire and Roja had these kind of deathly experiences, and he desired mightily walk us through his career. Because Bradley, many of our listeners are probably maybe only fuzzy no Roger Ailes is and why he was such an important figure. But, you know, starting from you know, he grows up in Ohio..

"And it's just kind of mind boggling that those stories just kind of fade into the background because Trump is kinda graded on a curve because the because of the number of of outrageous are like Trump's in, you know, the really agreed. One is that all this was taking place during the campaign was concealed from the voters. Trump seriously misled the American public interest during the campaign, but in all his comments after the election in which he said, you know, have nothing to do with Russia. I have no investments in Russia. Maybe technically true. But certainly highly misleading in light of what we learned about Michael Cohen. And I don't think it's going to be forgotten. Because I, you know, as as I mentioned before we're gonna see that Cohen sentencing memo, okay? Back in that before we get to that. And I want you to talk about the two filings that are coming late this week, and it will be talking about in our special edition that comes out on Saturday morning. You wanna make this point that last week on the show, we had Corey Lewandowski, and Dave Bossie two of Trump's most loyal attack dogs. And when we brought up the Cohen allegations Cohen admitted that he lied to the Senate about the extent to which he had briefed the president on this Moscow Trump Tower deal, and how long into the campaign and actually went what do they do. They. Well, they did what Trump did this said, he's a liar. He lies about it. He's a serial liar. Well, just to correct the record here the New York Times after that revelation, and they went to Trump's lawyer to Rudy outside lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and they asked the question that we were raising on the show will Muller certainly would have asked that question when he sent Trump the series of questions of the New York Times of tained was he briefed by Cohen on these negotiations. Did he know that these negotiations were going on into the summer of two thousand sixteen and Giuliani said basically what Michael Cohen testifies to allot aligned with Donald Trump answers to the special counsel. So I guess he wasn't lying at least. That's now what Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said. Yeah. Yes. Exactly. And it's going to put the lie to low in TAOs Ke's claim that that Cohen was a liar. At least on this pretty consequential matter, obviously gonna learn a lot more. We hope. We're gonna learn a lot more very shortly. The other one that could be incredibly revealing is the filing in the Manafort case in which Muller's team is expected to lay out what it is. They believe Manafort lied to them about after agreeing to cooperate in the investigation. So look bottom line is where are we in the Muller, bro? I you know, I had a story on Yahoo. This week suggesting that we are moving towards the end game. And this could very shortly be the climax of the Muller investigation. A lot of pushback on that some of my colleagues in the media were dismissing it and saying, no the Flynn memo and other matters adjust. There's lots more for Muller to do. We don't really know the answer the question, I think we're all reading clues at this point. But we should have a better sense. I think a where things stand after those two additional memo's get filed which is why. We're gonna do this special edition this weekend. So skulduggery listeners, stay tuned. And let's get back to our prime subject today. Roger ailes..

"The head of HR. And so it didn't occur to me that there was somebody higher than Roger who could have done something. There wasn't. What was your pitch to them about sharing their stories because these are women in some cases, whose careers were destroyed by not a ceding to Roger Ailes desires? It's very direct. It's. Listen, I think this is what's happened to you. We doing this film. We would like to tell you a story as truthfully as possible. And as respectfully as possible, let's have a conversation off the record. I and they ask me questions about what our film is about what our approach is. You know, how central they'll be are we talking to other people, and you know, you just approach it in as human away as possible. I think everybody can agree. Even if they don't like Roger Ailes politics that he was a very successful businessman. He was also maniac. And I think there are couple people who talk about that in your film. I wanna play a clip from a journalist named John Cook. Roger Ailes was profoundly paranoid person. He carried a gun at all times. He was convinced that was trying to kill him that gay terrorists would come attack him. Roger Ailes thought that like Osama bin Laden was sitting in his cave, and he had like the list of people. And it was like, George W Bush, and then Roger Ailes, and there's another moment in the film where Roger Ailes meets President Obama and President Obama says while the most powerful person in media, and Roger Ailes tells everybody that he said the most powerful person in the world, so what was going on? And Roger Ailes mind about the way that he saw himself in relation to others. I mean, Roger was a deeply deeply paranoid person. And I think, you know, the flip side of that is that you Mattis so much. Thank you have things to be paranoid about. So he's an ego maniac. He thinks he is the most important man in the world. You know, he thinks he's single handedly saving America on some level. You know with FOX, you know, he's the bulwark against the liberal media elites of Los Angeles and New York who are hell bent on destroying the country. And only FOX is standing in the way of that by foxy means himself. And then the flip side of that is that, you know. Gosh, everyone's out to get me. I'm this like lone figure on the battlefield and everyone's out to get me. And that means. Osama bin Laden, it means the liberals, it means CNN. It means the Bangladeshi accountants at FOX who wanders into his area by mistake. Who is who is removed from having access to that floor, correct? Based on the color of his skin. Yes. And big wall is built because Raja thinks that this guy was gonna come and kill him. I mean, he was actually looking for food. He got an Email saying, hey, we had a conference and this bad food crystals and donuts if you'd like to come up to the second floor poke I wanted into the wrong area, and that kind of changed his life. Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly who is also accused of sexual harassment and settled the lawsuit filed against him are gone from Fox News. So we may not know if there are still people who are preyed on women at Fox News. But the title of your film is divide and conquer and in terms of Roger Ailes view of the world how much of that view of polarizing the country plane on the nation's fears making up stories to make people alarmed and terrified how much of that is still embedded in the culture of Fox News today. I mean, I think it's it continues to be embedded in a very. The real way there are people on air at FOX like Shep Smith. Springs to mind who correct his own network, but the kind of division ry invective is alive and well with Tucker Carlson. And kind of. I mean, ankle says the most outrageous things on FOX a lot of people that given time, you know, that says Sean Hannity was campaigning for Trump. Yes. That's right. And is that would that make Roger Ailes happy? Do you think? I mean, listen happy trails was a miserable gates. I don't think he was happy eater. Nothing's gonna no amount of Prozac would make him happy. But I think that his key goal was don't lose the audience. Whatever you do don't leave the audience, and they haven't lost the audience. I think you know, on some level. You know, Trump wasn't his first choice Jeb Bush was he was also meets with Chris Christie. So. He he recognized Donald Trump's fuels. And I think he would have been a bit dismissive of him in private. But you know, they haven't lost that audience. They audiences is growing. They were the most watched cable news outfits joined the midterms, and that's he would have been pleased about Alexis bloom is the director and producer of divide and conquer the story of Roger Ailes Alexis.

"And he was a top advisor to Trump. And so at the moment of Trump's triumph Roger Ailes. His mentor was falling so ails is rankings nine and Trump is the monster. Well, Ailes is Dr Frankenstein and Trump is the months. Okay. So this strategy beginning with as you've mentioned, the southern strategy that Nixon did and all this other stuff the fear Amar, Margaret it's worked for a public. It works. It works. We're a few days away from the midterm elections on that asking to make big predictions. But do you think do you think it's the last week or so which has been just crazy in the in the aftermath of these terrible attempted fight bombings and massacre at the sitting? In in Pittsburgh, you know, some people think well, maybe there's going to be a backlash against Trump. Because of it, do you think this is working for him? Now with all the kind of caravan stuff and sending troops down to the border and all of that crazy stuff that's going on now. Well, I think that it was working, and then because of the pipe bombs and the synagogue shooting. There was an abrupt stop in momentum. And you can feel it when it happens. It was like when Hillary stopped after coming, you just feel it. But that's why Trump has ratcheted it up, and is now doing something that I think as with Trump a lot has never been done in history before he's using the federal government to provide scary optics to his scary. Fear lies. So he's going to bring fifteen thousand troops. He's threatening to bring to the border which is more than it is in Afghanistan. And he's talking about this in rescinding birthright citizenship, which is in the constitution. So he's using the federal. Government to back up. His scary fearmongering, which I don't think has been done before. Have you seen that latest ad which is now tweeting out with the the illegal immigrant who was the convicted murderer talking about how he wants to kill more cops. Yeah, it's the exact same playbook. So you have Democrats let this guy in right? More like him in right? Well, it's you know, US about the Roger Ailes thing. So Roger Ailes studied Leni Riefenstahl Hitler's propagandist. And he had you know, specific playbook that you would create this patriotic traditional world, and then you would trash the other and the elites who were trying to help the other. And in some cases, as with Obama, even the other of black man wasn't other enough. So we had to paint him. You know, that was the whole birther thing. He had to be Kenyon and Muslim remain, you know, piling. Other on top of other. So every time you write one of these columns where you're bashing and skewering Republicans on thinking is what is Kevin think. Well, you know, I haven't Kevin is Maureen Republican brother every year, she turns the column over to to Kevin for to give his perspective, which is radically different than Morenes. Is he turned off by Trump's rhetoric at all? Well, you know, I like times readers see something from the belly of the red state 'cause some of the conservative columnists ball are all voting democrat. So this is an actual Trump voter and avid supporter. You know? I went to I had won it for a long time to take him to monument valley for his birthday.

"You had to high performers roger ailes and bill o'riley whose abusive behavior was tolerated for a very long time and you've got some very high profile lawsuits and you got outraged viewers and companies who were advertising on fox news network to pull the plug and that's what really helped what's the and if companies know that there will be significant reputational fall out i mean that's why uber hired eric holder was willing to fire those executives they thought they were going to pay for this and in public opinion if they didn't change the culture and that's the message that needs to go out to produce structural change one last question yes to your point about the grassroots method i'm working an aerospace company i'm an engineer and i've writing an internal blog on women's experiences of being an aerospace engineer and i have a lot of great stories some of them who were very concerned about sharing or wanted to remain anonymous for fear of vilification and i was saddened by that and i'd like to hear your thoughts on what i can do to respond to these women who have been braved bring their stories to me or are afraid to but to encourage them to do so because visibility is important this is a wonderful way to end it and then he question nicole i understand the desire to want to put names and faces two stories but each individual has their own set of considerations and risks that they have to decide for themselves and if an anonymous story is the best we can get it's better than no story and if you can put stories together to reveal patterns to the kinds of things that that groups of women are experiencing in a field that is so male dominated light like aerospace engineering then that that's pretty good yes we want people to to say to do what susan fowler did but i think when you talk to susan fowler you talked to other people who came out like that they they are very clear about the price they paid and there is a price as much as we can call her a hero and she is it is not without significant damage to her own wellbeing everything from i mean i gave a speech wants and taken out of context i ended up having to to travel with security guards for like two weeks and i had to change my passwords and locks on my front door and deal with the police to tell them you know if i call you this is what it's about and so an and that wasn't even one you heard of right so imagine what the susan fowler's of the world have actually experienced by coming forward and anybody who says i'm not ready for that kind of limelight i don't blame them but share their story anonymously i would also encourage you to remember i think that it's a great start what you're talking about sharing people's stories but it's just that a start right and so it's one opportunity for women to be heard but but but hopefully there will be other opportunities right so the idea is that yes there's a blog post and yes had increases awareness but for change to happen something must come after a right so inviting these women to continue to participate in the process and it could be that they gain confidence as the process continues but seeing this is a journey right because it doesn't just start an end with that blog post it's a long road towards change and bringing those women with you and walking down that road together regardless of if it's a public or private journey i think is another way to think about the situation deborah rhody i agree let's give.

"Against roger ailes for the harassment she was a perfect person to step into this position because there were a lot of people that wanted to see the change in the miss america pageant step away from the physicality and more towards the intellectual less of a focus on outward appearance but but this is this is like the bait and switch oh boy i can't wait to hear this one it is a they are beauty pageants is a you know inside as well as it is okay if that was true then then they would not look like they look i triple dog dare you go ahead and take all of the winners of the miss american put them up there and go yeah well you can be hot on the outside and smart on the inside to i'm not discounting the smart on the inside part i'm saying that no one wakes up the morning after the miss america pageant okay and and and and goes to the youtube clip or the facebook clip or whatever it is you know because nobody actually watches this stuff you see a recap of a couple of times and you see a picture of oh look miss whoever north carolina leave arizona advocates i don't know who she is she might be listening okay you might heckle you in the parking lot rightfully so miss north carolina one nobody looks at the picture of miss north carolina taking the they take the big bocquet of flowers and they're wearing like a slinky dress writing crown yes right nobody gp what do you think you think she's got a college degree okay nagara theorem if you say that nobody'll watch look at her and go whoa she's either women go well she's beautiful she's put our guys go she just throwing it out there but if you say that most people don't watch this any way or most guys don't watch it you know it doesn't really matter that they're taking away the physicality so is that part of this is is the is the missing miss america pageant for women a pageant of women for women because i just don't think guys sit around and watch this i honestly don't it's like you could go leering this listen there's a lot more things you can lear it on tv than the miss america pageant you know what it's like it's like we don't look at the sears catalog to read the underwear okay there is something called the interweb out there you know it seems to always come on when there's not much else on i don't know when it actually comes on but it seems like the times that i've watched it's because there hasn't been anything else on in with the advent of now flakes and other cable channels there's always something else on but i'm wondering if the representatives from the twenty two state pageants that sent the petition with a no confidence vote muslim because they've taken away the swimsuit competition if they're concerned about revenues that come from the vendors could just be about money possibly give if we don't have a swimsuit competition anymore and miss america be interested in it if they're not as interested in that we don't have people in our state competitions coming up and we lose power exactly it's not just swimsuits but apparently you don't have to wear the ball gowns anymore either you can wear whatever you want yeah you know what right and they're gonna come out wearing what do they call boyfriend jeans or whatever baggy jeans tuxedos horse hawk yeah no they're not no they're not i don't buy it it's a competition to see who's prettiest and then once you acknowledge they're all pretty we go to the tiebreakers which are things like talent and intelligence but it's a pretty competition i i like the focus on the intelligence but i don't think it's called the script spelling bee okay you wanna find that i'll go through that and guess what rarely hot rarely the trump administration not necessarily doing a good job reuniting families especially these young immigrant children will give you.
