14. Roger Ailes appreciated Leni Riefenstahl

As Rupert Murdoch’s hand-picked stooge to found Fox News, Ailes brought to the United States of America what NAZI Germany would be like with television, the Fourth Reich’s tool for controlling minds. Ailes said he admired Leni Riefenstahl, Hitler's favorite NAZI filmmaker.

According to the new biography (and a history going back a ways in GOP circles), The Loudest Voice In The Room: How The Brilliant, Bombastic Roger Ailes Built Fox News — And Divided A Country:

Ailes was “a big fan” of Leni Riefenstahl, Hitler’s notorious favorite filmmaker—not for her Nazi ideology but for her cinematic talent as a propagandist. “Ailes was especially taken by Riefenstahl’s use of camera angles.”

Terry Gross of Fresh Air interviewed Gabriel Sherman, the guy who wrote, the book.

This is the kind of information that Fox viewers might appreciate knowing before watching their television screens.

Something everyone should know: Roger Ailes and the Big Money has been in bed with Big NAZI for a long time.
