Michael Wolff to Tackle Fox News in New Book

Henry Holt will publish Michael Wolff’s The Fall: The End of Fox News and the Murdoch Dynasty on September 26. Holt acquired North American and audio rights for The Fall from Andrew Wylie of the Wylie Agency, and will be published by The Bridge Street Press in the U.K.

With The Fall, Wolff, the publisher said, tells “the story of the collapse of a media dynasty,” writing “of the effects of Fox’s all-powerful controlling shareholder’s age (92), the desperate rivalries and contradictory desires of his children regarding the future of the network (the flesh and blood version of HBO’s Succession), the irresolvable contradiction of Rupert Murdoch’s antipathy to Trump, and to Fox’s own stars, the full backstory of Tucker Carlson’s ouster and of Fox’s chief legal officer, Viet Dinh’s recent ouster, and reveals hidden details of the Dominion Settlement.”

Wolff is the author of one of the Trump Era's bestselling political books, Fire and Fury.
