HBO’s new series The Newsroom should become the required blueprint for all of our newscasts. As I see it each and every network has their own agenda and subjects to push and show in a positive light.
Jeff Daniels as anchor Will McAvoy, who, together with his staff set out to put on a news show in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal entanglements and biases.
In other words, report the news as the news and leave behind the politices, religion, business and personal traps that force the news to become something other than the news. It’s almost like we live in a fairy tale world and if our news broadcasts are in fact fairy tales then they should rename them to something else, broadcast them in cartoon format and show them on Saturday mornings. Someone might then enjoy them.
