Good morning welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up today an interview with Tim Dickinson, author of a new article in Rolling Stone Magazine on Roger Ailes and Fox News entitled: "How Roger Ailes Built the Fox News Fear Factory".

Dickinson writes:

"The key to decoding Fox News isn't Bill O'Reilly or Sean Hannity. It isn't even News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch. To understand what drives Fox News, and what its true purpose is, you must first understand Chairman Ailes. 'He is Fox News,' says Jane Hall, a decade-long Fox commentator who defected over Ailes' embrace of the fear-mongering Glenn Beck. 'It's his vision. It's a reflection of him.'"
