    I'm not sure whether it is an aversion to series that refers to Fox News, despite being highly critical, or something else, but I disagree with a lot of the negative reviews on this show. I think it is great TV and I certainly am not familiar with a lot of the history depicted here, although a grain of salt is likely required when considering the accuracy of the events depicted, whichI'm not sure whether it is an aversion to series that refers to Fox News, despite being highly critical, or something else, but I disagree with a lot of the negative reviews on this show.

    When it sticks to the accounts of the building of Fox News, it's extremely compelling. When it dips into the salacious stuff, it gets extremely cliched and trite. It's actually a show that can appeal to both sides of the aisle - the Fox folks (half the country) that loved to see the traditional media get its butt kicked by this new station that appeals to the "other half" - but it canWhen it sticks to the accounts of the building of Fox News, it's extremely compelling.

It's actually a show that can appeal to both sides of the aisle - the Fox folks (half the country) that loved to see the traditional media get its butt kicked by this new station that appeals to the "other half" - but it can also sate those who want to demonize Ailes, which would probably be more effective if the man were still alive - even if you accept that he harassed his employees in the way he was accused. The fact that he's not makes it less effective. Again, as a historical document, it's extremely interesting - tough to believe that this network didn't exist in 1996. Expand

    A compelling if flawed condensation of Gabriel Sherman's book, worth watching for anyone interested in the political-media nexus where Ailes reigned.

    It’s a pungent profile of a nauseating figure. ... “The Loudest Voice” sees the behind-the-scenes culture of sexual assault and the onscreen show of Barnum-ized reactionaryism as two curves of the same lens, which is trained on America and not necessarily opposed to airing anything, especially if it did strong numbers in the demo.

    Riveting at the start and somewhat less so as time marches on. Crowe’s portrayal of Ailes of course is the major drawing card, and he is nothing if not fully immersed. The characters around him can’t help but pale in comparison, but it would help if some of the supporting roles were more vividly acted.
