#1 "Most Hollywood films about journalism since All the President’s Men 43 years ago have taken the free press’ side, portraying it as a scruffy if noble institution essential to the well-being of democracy. Eastwood and screenwriter Billy Ray (The Hunger Games, Captain Phillips) here take a rather different view of the Fourth Estate, portraying it as reckless, corrupt and immoral."

Hooray for Hollywood!

Finally, people are realizing that our "press" is not free, that are journalists are partisan hacks who've created a Shitshow.

Can't wait to see the flick.

#2 How about 'propagandists' as a more appropriate yet still civilized identification. There are others, but we need to keep the Burg 'G' rather than 'X'.

#4 I remember this. They were completely repulsed by him as a person and it violated their sacred values to see him cast as a hero. So they shit on him and called him the villain, even though there was no evidence. Liars.

#5 Interesting that the plot line is so similar to the one Clint Eastwood followed for "Sully."

Little People who have power hate Greatness, especially when it appears in an otherwise ordinary man.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
