This book examines how representative films about journalism from the early 1960s to the mid-1980s allegorized the working life of the journalist. The central chapters deal with three popular images of journalists: the war correspondent, the scoop- crazed reporter or ratings-hungry TV executive, and the investigative journalist. Among the films discussed are The Green Berets, The Killing Fields, Under Fire, Absence of Malice, Network, The China Syndrome, and All the President's Men.
