"That's the Press Baby...and There is Nothing You can Do About It"
Timeless Story of Journalism and its Role in our Daily Lives and the implications and Necessity of a Free Press. This Film actually addresses some of the Reasons that Tabloids, because of the Aforementioned, are a viable and Necessary part of Our Culture.
But of course the Emphasis here is on the need for Balance and the Fate of Our Society if we allow the Lowest Common Denominator to determine or blot out the Truly Unbiased, or Objective Reporting of Events as much as Possible.
The Uninformed Populace cannot make Wise Decisions. That Foundation is our Forefathers First Amendment Intent.
This Film is Realistic in its Setting and the Professionals who Populate the Newspaper. You can almost Smell the Pulp and Feel the Ink Stain Your Consciousness. One of the Best of the Newspaper Movies that has Dated very Little despite Our Modern Platforms and Delivery System Incarnations within the Mass Media.
