To understand the events that led to the rise of Donald Trump, one must understand Roger Ailes, who molded Fox News into a force that irrevocably impacted the highest levels of government. The Loudest Voice takes on that challenge, focusing primarily on the past decade in which Ailes arguably became the Republican Party's de facto leader, while also touching on defining events in Ailes' life, including the sexual harassment accusations and settlements that brought his Fox News reign to an end. Told through multiple points of view, the limited series aims to shed light on the psychology that drives the political process from the top down.
