Fox News CEO Roger Ailes got a biography this month, Roger Ailes: Off Camera.

TVNewser covered the book and its reception among critics and television news personalities. Check it out:

Zev Chafets, is making the TV news rounds this week to promote the book. The book was also reviewed by the New York Times‘ Michiko Kakutaniand not positively: ‘For the most part Mr. Chafets serves as little more than a plastic funnel for Mr. Ailes’s observations — much as he did for Rush Limbaugh in his 2010 book ‘Rush Limbaugh: Army of One.’”

TVNewser senior editor Alex Weprin discussed the book on the Morning Media Menu today. Press play below to listen…

Editor’s Note: A previous version of this post called the biography “authorized.” Although Ailes said “I picked Zev,” the book is not labeled as an authorized biography.
