Journalism in Film

Grab some popcorn! We’re going to the movies! In this course we will watch some great films while examining how journalists and journalism have been portrayed in this popular culture medium over the past 75 years. What do these moving images tell us about the public’s perception of the journalist’s role in American life and democratic societies? Can we gain insight into how the public’s view of journalism has differed during various historical periods? How do these movies relate to the public’s view of journalism today? We will also examine some of the tactics each film uses to emphasize its intended messages. Supplemental readings will be provided.
