Extra, extra! Hold the presses! Breaking: everybody loves a humble investigative hero. Where would big-screen journalism be without a cynical, chain-smoking newspaper editor? A pretty vacant news anchor? A newsroom love triangle? A deep-throated source? Whether fictional or based on true events, in print, radio or on television, we want you to blow the whistle on the best films about journalism, because we’re mad as hell, and we’re not gonna take this fake news anymore.
