    I listened to your discussion of "journalists" done by journalists. Wow. The inane banter demonstrated how far off the road you journalists have gotten. You all appear to more interested in the book deal and the movie deal than the real story.
    A good journalist can make any story understandable even if it requires letting the air out of the story.. To say that Woodward was a great journalist is just plain wrong. To say that Watergate was a great story would be more correct. Woodward did not make Watergate any more understandable. He worked to made himself the story. The embellishments to make the book and the movie more dramatic make the whole work cheap.
    Journalism today is too much Dan Rather. Too much spin. Too much of the "more to follow after this break" when there is no more to add.

      OK, so the 70s has Animal House, Harold and Maude (in my all-time top 5), Annie Hall, this ^ movie (never seen) and Rocky Horor.But the '80 s? We've got Caddyshack, Airplane, Ordinary People, BreakSfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire, About Last Night, Amadeus, The Lost Boys, The Big Chill, Blue Velvet, This is Spinal Tap, Dangerous Liaisons, Diner, The Dead Poets Society, The Hunger, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Ghostbusters, and for the love of G-d HEATHERS, all came out in the 1980s. (Not to mention one of YOUR faves, Raising Arizona.)You can have the 70s I'll take the 80s, and if you are lucky you can broorw some of my dvds. :)

        Well lets start off by saying that that first aenswr you got shows that amount of moronic ignorance out there in America today. They don't question the Fox News viewers intelligence because they are Fox News watchers but rather that the viewer doesn't follow in lock step with the point of view that they in person hold. This leads us into next question; it is not that the others are less "pro-American" as it may look, they are pushing an agenda/propaganda that they want you to judge instead. It make them upset when you reckon for yourself and don't drink the koolaid they are passing out. We live in a global the upper classes and there is no way out of that, they just want to be crowned kings & worshiped as vital public instead of just doing their job honestly. "Check every fact on every channel for your own excellent read, watch, question questions and by no means judge that anyone knows everything!" Excellent luck to you in life my friend!
