Summary

Matthew C. Ehrlich's Journalism in the Movies is the story of Hollywood's depiction of American journalism from the start of the sound era to the present. Ehrlich argues that films have relentlessly played off the image of the journalist as someone who sees through lies and hypocrisy sticks up for the little guy and serves democracy. Focusing on films about key figures and events in journalism including Mr. Smith Goes to Washington All the President's Men and The Insider Journalism in the Movies presents a unique opportunity to reflect on how movies relate not only to journalism but also American life and democracy.
