NIACW 187 Network

In the age of infotainment and President Trump, a film like Network might not seem so satirical but in 1976 it was the darkest of satires and a damning criticism of “modern” journalism.

 

It’s one of Brother E’s favorite films but Brother J thought it didn’t translate to a modern audience.

 

We have a fun discussion about media luminaries such as: Glenn Beck, Christine O’Donnell, Bill Maher, Dan Savage, Michael Savage, Alex Jones, Steve Bannon, President Trump, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Shepard Smith, Nancy Grace, and Jenny Jones. Brother J shares a theory on framing beach scenes.

 

In housekeeping we discuss: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Trolls, Inside Out, The Butterfly Effect, Asylum Blackout, Perkins 14, and Darling.
