The Film 'Gets' How the World Feels to Me Today
Everything is running in different directions, the world is breeding crazies, and all the media seems able to do is add paranoia and misinformation to the mix.
I don't want the media (whether liberal or conservative) to TELL me what to think. I want it to tell me what's going on and let me make up my own mind. At the same time, the media is even more cynical than it was at the time this movie was made.
I once worked as an unpaid news intern for a network affiliate, going out to cover stories with a cameraman and gathering information until the "reporter" showed up, took my notes, and then did his/her "story" standup. I said, at the time, that the most cynical people I have ever met in my life were news cameramen!
