Muckraking and the Movies
With documentaries like "Page One" and Errol Morris’ "Tabloid" in theatres, we’re looking at why the business of broadsheets has long been a favorite topic for Tinsel Town. All this against the backdrop of the voicemail hacking scandal that’s undone Rupert Murdoch’s London-based rag –-it’s no wonder the newsroom drama has been a Hollywood favorite. From "Citizen Kane" to "State of Play", our film contributor Garen Daly will take us through the trajectory of newspapers on the silver screen.
