Good Luck and Good Night
I think that this was a great movie and carried a pretty good point to the story. One of the things that I noticed in the movie is that they were nervous about reporting on a government figure. I found it interesting that there was so much hesitation and worry, all of the people that they were afraid to offend. They were worried about what all of their sponsors would think. They were afraid for good reason because in the end they were relieved of their show. It is an interesting contrast from today. It seems that when it comes to government officials the media does not hold back, it seems like they are out to show you the bad and the dirty in the officials and do not fear judgement. I am not that familiar with the history of the media but it seems like this was an example of the first questioning of an government figure, and then just opened the door for the media today.
