Roger Ailes Biography Tops Amazon Bestseller List

A new biography of Roger Ailes, creator and chairman of Fox News, has soared to the top of Amazon.com’s list of best-selling books.

“Roger Ailes: Off Camera” by veteran journalist Zev Chafets has climbed to the No. 4 spot on Amazon’s list of all books sold.

It is also No. 1 in several Amazon categories, including Communications and Political Leaders.

Chafets' book is drawing high praise not only for its penetrating look at the man credited with building Fox News into the top-rated cable news channel, but also for the significant revelations it offers about Ailes, his confrontation with President Obama, and other fascinating vignettes.

That confrontation erupted at a private meeting between Ailes and then Senator Obama in 2008 at New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel, with News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch in the room. The author gives a blow-by-blow account of the tense conversation that ensued.

Chafets is not a conservative — he is a frequent contributor to the New York Times Magazine and a former columnist for the New York Daily News.

His book also delves into Ailes’ White House days as a media adviser to Richard Nixon, his role in saving Ronald Reagan after his disastrous debate performance against Walter Mondale in the 1984 presidential campaign, why liberals groups see “two Great Satans” — Ailes and Rush Limbaugh — and much more.

Chafets talked with hundreds of Ailes’ friends and enemies, and constructs an intimate portrait of the man who has been called “the most powerful in news.”
