The colorful, controversial Roger Stone — author of "The Making of the President 2016: How Donald Trump Orchestrated a Revolution" — is the WashPost Style section cover story, "A bedrock of dark politics," by Manuel Roig-Franzia in Oakland Park, Fla.:

  • "Stone, a prolific author who hosts a radio program and runs a website, StoneColdTruth.com, never really went away. He's been talking nonstop for decades, pointing an accusing finger at Lyndon Johnson for alleged complicity in the Kennedy assassination, rooting around in Bill Clinton's extramarital misdeeds, depicting the Bushes as a "crime family." It's just that now there are more people listening."
  • "His studio — a man-cave-style haunt slathered floor to ceiling with Nixon memorabilia and conspiracy books — has been stocked with professional lighting and a broadcast-quality audio line by Stone's 19-year-old grandson, Nick."
  • "Stone met his Cuban American wife, Nydia, during one of Ronald Reagan's presidential campaigns, where she was working as a photographer. In a Polaroid picture taped to her computer monitor, the future married couple are slender and stylish with deep 1980s tans."
