What Movie Did We Watch Following The Election Of Donald Trump?

November 9, 2016

The power and responsibility of the media to present the needed information to the public was on my mind all this afternoon.  As such when it came time to think about what we would do this evening I offered up to James the idea we watch this film.  Powerful, brilliantly filmed and directed.  Five Stars.  There is a deep requirement that the public airwaves not be allowed to become more focused on info-tainment when it comes to reporting news.  I do not wish to paint too broad a stroke or detract from the solid and fine reporters who prove their professional stripes every day.  But there were many this election season who chased a reality-TV star and early in the process were more concerned about ratings than vetting a presidential contender.   Journalism must always have a higher calling.  That is why we watched this movie tonight.

    You’d have been well served to have watched Mike Judge’s “Idiocracy”.
