This article contains references to sexual assault and harassment.

The revelation of Harvey Weinstein’s extensive sexual abuse of numerous actresses was one of the most significant events in recent Hollywood history, so it’s no surprise Hollywood is making a movie out of it. She says stars Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan as reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, who investigated allegations of The New York Times.


Many films have featured journalists as main characters and told stories of them exposing corruption and bringing justice to those wronged by powerful people. For impatient fans She sayssubsequent films will give them gripping stories of heroic journalists speaking truth to power.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

All the President’s Men (1976)

Robert Redford and the cast of All the President's Men

Based on Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s investigation of the Watergate scandal, All the President’s Men was a huge hit with critics and audiences alike. Even today, it remains one of the most influential political thrillers, with brilliant storytelling and tension that set the standard for the genre.

Whereas She says is more of a pure drama, it shares several points in common with All the President’s Men, including the removal of a powerful person engaged in high-level corruption. They both also feature a pair of journalists as protagonists, played by some of the great performers of their generations.

Bomb (2019)

The main cast of the movie Bombshell.

Before the #MeToo movement got off to a serious start, the sexual harassment scandal of Fox News executive Roger Ailes was a notable precursor to bringing the issue to light. Bomb was produced just a few years after the scandal became public, chronicling how prominent women on the network, including Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly, exposed Ailes.

Perhaps because of its disturbing matter, Bomb was a box office disappointment, but it received positive reviews for the cast’s performances, particularly that of an almost unrecognizable Charlize Theron as Kelly. Another highlight is John Lithgow giving one of his best villain performances as Wings.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

The original Swedish version of The girl with the dragon tattoo is impressive on its own, but David Fincher’s remake has achieved an incredible feat in being as good as the original. Starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, the film follows a journalist and a hacker who investigate the long-ago disappearance of a young woman from a wealthy family.

We might not think that The girl with the dragon tattoo have a lot in common with She says, but they share heartbreaking themes of sexual assault, with Lizbeth de Mara exacting revenge on her sadistic state-appointed guardian. Moreover, Craig’s Nykvist is a realistic portrayal of journalists, as befits Larsson’s own history in the profession.

The Insider (1999)

A screenshot from The Insider.

by Michael Mann The insider is based on the story of Jeffrey Wigand, a whistleblower who exposed wrongdoing in the tobacco industry. Often considered one of Mann’s finest films, the film was not a financial success, but received rave reviews and helped cement Russell Crowe’s status as an in-demand leading man.

As She says, The insiderThe actual events of are significant in showing the world mountains of wrongdoing by powerful people who have spent years being empowered. The tobacco industry has been politically powerful for decades and has gone to great lengths to try to silence people like Wigard, the same way Weinstein would blacklist actresses who tried to expose him.

Network (1976)

A man shouts at international clocks in Network.

When an aging news anchor collapses on live television, his bosses see ratings skyrocket and realize that his outbursts could save the struggling network. So begins Networka highly acclaimed satire on media excess that earned Peter Finch the first posthumous Oscar as the iconic Howard Beale.

Network is certainly more darkly comic than the justly dead earnest She says, but it effectively illustrates how the pressures of fame and the demands of rulers can destroy a life. As invigorating as Beale’s rants are, his long mental breakdown is utterly tragic, as is the way everyone ruthlessly exploits his condition.

The Post Office (2017)

The Post Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep as Ben Bradlee and Kay Graham

A return to movies like All the President’s Men, The post office tells the story of The Washington Postthe publication of Pentagon documents, which proved the decades-long involvement of the US government in Vietnam. Directed by Steven Spielberg and featuring a star-studded cast, the film won critical acclaim for its performances and passionate defense of journalism in the age of “fake news”.

RELATED: 10 Best Newspaper Industry Movies, Ranked (According To IMDb)

Similar to All the President’s Men, The post office portrays the invisible Richard Nixon as the ultimate antagonist and even a call for Jobthe subsequent discovery of the Watergate break-in. The film also premiered just months after the Weinstein scandal broke, giving it even more urgency as a story of hard-working, service-minded muckrakers.

Spotlight (2015)

Spotlight wins Best Picture Oscar 2016

Projector is often considered not only one of the best films about journalism, but one of the best based on a true story in general (at least according to Reddit). Not only did it win the Best Picture Oscar, it also received positive ratings from the Vatican for “[voicing] the shock and deep pain of the faithful” over revelations of the Catholic Church’s cover-up of child sexual abuse by numerous priests (via Weekly entertainment).

The scandals described in Projector were in many ways as horrific as the crimes of Harvey Weinstein, with the added shock that the survivors were so young. But the film is also fundamentally hopeful, showing that the truth comes out when people are determined to find it.

State of play (2009)

Affleck and Crowe walk together in State of Play.

The 21st century has seen many acclaimed political thrillers, but one of the most underrated is State of play, based on the British series of the same name. Starring Russell Crowe as reporter Cal McAffrey, the plot follows Cal as he investigates the mysterious death of Congressman Stephen Collins’ (Ben Affleck) mistress.

RELATED: 10 Best Ben Affleck Thriller Movies, According To IMDb

Whereas State of play Not much talked about today, it’s worth seeking out for its clever writing and great cast, especially Crowe and Helen Mirren. Also worth watching for fans of She says to be a story about how journalism, politics and truth intersect and often conflict.

Zodiac (2007)

Two reporters stand in a Zodiac newsroom.

Similar to Harvey Weinstein in the late 2010s, the Zodiac Killer fascinated and terrified people across the country in the late 60s and early 70s. by David Fincher Zodiac takes the fruitless real-life hunt for the infamous serial killer and creates compelling drama that perfectly captures the unease of the times.

From the terrifying scene of the lake murder, Zodiac never releases the tension, especially during long stretches when no one is killed, and the viewer waits for the next tragedy. Some of the scariest parts come after the murders are over, and Robert Graysmith (Jake Gyllenhaal) is completely shattered by his obsession with the case.

Richard Jewell (2019)

Richard Jewell and Walter Bryan together.

Based on the true story of a security guard who helped foil a bombing at the 1996 Olympics only to find himself framed for the crime, Richard Jewell is an effective drama that shows how heroism can sometimes be thankless work. Despite failing at the box office, the film was a hit with critics, even earning a spot on the National Board of Review’s 2019 Top 10 list (via Deadline).

Richard Jewell works as a companion piece for She says due to their differences, with the former focusing on times when journalism goes wrong. While Kathy Scruggs’ portrayal has been widely criticized as demonization, it’s still worth knowing how Jewell could have been rammed with the help of a desperate press for a juicy story.

Tony Black is a tough guy who can never be accused of resting on his laurels.

Whether it’s working with the press and newspaper and meeting the likes of David Essex or Ricky Ross and covering Madonna’s wedding to Guy Ritchie, or graduating into the world of detective fiction with a series of critically acclaimed novels, it seemed his specialty was words – but now he’s freshened up his life with a career in art.

If you wanted someone to sum up that great Scottish phrase, “lad o’ pairts”, then Black fits the mold as someone who is always looking for new challenges and pursuits and he was even happy to kill the protagonist in his lucrative book cannon.

The author, who garnered eight Crime Writers Association Dagger nominations for his novels set in Edinburgh starring drunken private detective Gus Dury, insisted the writing had been on the wall for the detective from the moment his views have gone from page to canvas and he is already reaping the rewards of his leap of faith.

Tony Black has gone from newspaper and newspaper reporter to best-selling author and has now progressed in art.

Although he says art has always been his first love, the 50-year-old, who enjoyed his time at P&J in the Highland capital, admitted he never imagined he could make a living from it.

And it seemed like all his Christmases had come at once when he landed a six-book deal with the world’s largest publisher at the time, Random House, in 2007 as a prelude to his snappy thrillers that made a serious impression on international bestsellers. lists.

Gus wasn’t exactly a nice guy

He recalls: “I was in the top 10 in Germany, which is the biggest book market in Europe, and my publisher there, Zsolnay, sent journalists and filmmakers all the time to interview me about of Gus.

“But I really struggled to find nice things to say about him. Gus was an abusive alcoholic, whose love life was a shambles, and it was very hard to keep company at times.

Hence why Black turned to painting to avoid burnout and went so far as to lock himself in the garage and start painting again as he did in his youth.

It was a cathartic process, but as word quickly spread of his prowess with a palette, more and more people started showing up to look at the paintings on the walls and Black was shocked when they started looking at them. to buy.

As a writer, he could have plastered his walls with rejection slips from publishers before finally getting a break, but the art happened in a flash. He found it “really incredible to see people quite hypnotized by the paintings”.

As he recalled, “One image actually caused a bit of a stooshie in the gallery – a man in red underpants – when two women wanted to buy it at the same time. Whoever lost asked me if I’d do another one with the red underpants, but I’m kinda scared of being known as the red Y-fronts guy!

Home is where the art is

Naturally, he has little interest in “doing a Conan Doyle” and bringing his most famous literary character to life in the future.

Yet, befitting a cunning Scotsman, he doesn’t entirely burn his bridges.

At the moment, Gus may be a body in the library, but Black is still being asked about the possibility of exhuming him for another book, movie, or TV show.

His attitude? Never say never.

On India, Pakistan’s “T20 philosophy”, Babar Azam’s response to the journalist https://ramiroledesma.com/on-india-pakistans-t20-philosophy-babar-azams-response-to-the-journalist/ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 06:10:31 +0000 https://ramiroledesma.com/on-india-pakistans-t20-philosophy-babar-azams-response-to-the-journalist/ Babar Azam-led Pakistan stumbled to a five-wicket loss to England in Sunday’s T20 World Cup final and their dream of winning the tournament for the second time was over.

Babar Azam-led Pakistan stumbled to a five-wicket loss to England in Sunday’s T20 World Cup final and their dream of winning the tournament for the second time was over. After the game, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan were criticized for their conservative approach inside the power play, and the slow start did not pay off as the batters continued to lose wickets on death and keep the wickets in hand for the final overs. does not bring the desired result.

In fact, India and Pakistan have been criticized throughout the World Cup for their “slow starts” on the power play. On the other hand, England played with a completely different philosophy as each batter tackled the bowlers from the start.

It is therefore not surprising that after the loss against England, Babar was asked about the approach with which India and Pakistan play the shortest format.

This is what the reporter asked Babar in a post-match press conference: “The philosophy of Babar, India or Pakistan to play T20 Cricket is to play in one day. You have to keep the wicket and hit it at the end. England have continually shown two great Asian teams how T20 cricket has changed. Are these kind of surprises necessary for a change? Whether you’re talking about Pakistan or the India, do you feel you get a strong message when you come to such tournaments?

To this question, Babar gave a rather cautious answer, saying that situations dictate the style of play and each team plays according to its own plans.

“It depends on the situation. What is the demand from you and after that you plan. Every team has their own plans and we stick to our plan. Sometimes we are not able to give 100% but we try. not to repeat our mistakes. But that’s part of the game. Sometimes you do well and sometimes you don’t,” Babar said.

“That’s the beauty of cricket. Every day is different. Everyone has their own mindset. I use it in the first six overs. Both teams struggled after the first six overs,” he said. -he adds.

Pakistan have just posted 137 runs from 20 overs in the final, and it was Ben Stokes who led the chase for England. As a result, the Three Lions won the tournament for the second time, having won it in 2010.

All the debate lately is about the signing of Jude Bellingham by Liverpool.

The Reds urgently need to refresh their midfield options and according to ESPN, Jurgen Klopp’s side are winning the race to secure the Borussia Dortmund sensation.

However, there is another midfielder that Liverpool could be a ‘dark horse’ to sign.

According to journalist Paul Brown, a shock transfer for Youri Tielemans is not to be overlooked.

Belgium international £40million signing from Leicester City [BBC Sport]is out of contract next summer and come January, Brendan Rodgers may have no choice but to accept a cut-price deal for him.

Here’s what Brown told Give Me Sport: “A dark horse to watch here his Liverpool. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we see Liverpool make a move for Tielemans as a free agent.

Lord knows there is room for Tielemans and Bellingham at Anfield next summer and beyond and signing the midfielder from the Foxes certainly wouldn’t mean the England international is suddenly off the table.

Because Bellingham will likely cost at least nine figures wherever he goes, it would be economical for Klopp to arrange a cheap midfielder transfer as well.

Liverpool don’t want to spend £200m just on midfielders next summer and so bargains like Tielemans certainly make sense.

The Australian Financial Review removed references to two female journalists from an article after complaints from the ABC and the Seven Network about the paper’s “trivializing” portrayal of their employees.

But the Nine Entertainment-owned newspaper refrained from apologizing to the women, instead attaching a “clarification” at the bottom of the article.

An earlier version of this online story included details that were neither relevant nor necessary. Those details have since been deleted.

AFR Senior Correspondent Aaron Patrick included gratuitous references to two political journalists in an online Thursday analysis of media coverage of the Victorian election: Melbourne journalist waging guerrilla war with his prime minister.

While Patrick described the Age’s Paul Sakkal as an “ambitious young reporter”, he referred to the Victorian state political reporter for the ABC as “ABC TV’s Bridget Rollason, who shot TikTok videos to music of herself going to a gym, having breakfast and putting on make-up”.

According to Rollason, there are no TikTok videos on her account of her at the gym or having breakfast.

Patrick described Seven Network political reporter Sharnelle Vella as having “her own talent agent.”

Seven and the ABC wrote letters of complaint to AFR editor Michael Stutchbury.

“The ABC complained to the Australian Financial Review and Aaron Patrick about the irrelevant, incorrect and trivial reference to award-winning journalist Bridget Rollason and demanded that the story be changed,” the ABC said.

The newspaper did not explain why Patrick’s article in the print newspaper did not contain the references.

The online article referred to a press conference with Dan Andrews in Melbourne on Monday as follows: “Sakkal was joined by ABC radio presenter Rafael Epstein, one of the few journalists with whom Andrews was friendly; Australia’s Rachel Baxendale, who had long been harassed by Andrews’ Twitter followers; Julia Bradley of Sky News, who is a lifelong reviewer of Andrews; ABC TV’s Bridget Rollason, who shot TikTok videos to upbeat music of herself hitting the gym, having breakfast and putting on makeup; Sharnelle Vella of the Seven Network, who has her own talent agent; and Gus McCubbing, reporter for The Australian Financial Review.

Stutchbury told Guardian Australia the comments have been deleted.

“Allegations about journalists contained in Aaron Patrick’s report have been removed from the online article,” he said. “The claims detracted from what was otherwise a well-written article.”

Last year, an article by Patrick about News Corp reporter Samantha Maiden was described by some as a best-selling work and criticized by reporters across the media.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Alasdair Gold discussed some of his observations from the Tottenham press box over the weekend.

The reporter was watching, as always, everything Spurs do before, during and after the game during his coverage, and he noticed something interesting about Richarlison.

The Brazilian, of course, has been injured for some time and absent from the Spurs squad, but Gold noticed the striker looked like he’s been doing some fitness over the weekend.

Indeed, Gold noted that Richarlison was dressed in sportswear while watching the warm-up from the touchlines, hinting that he was in the private gym at Spurs’ stadium that day.

Richarlison gets closer

Gold shared his observation on the Brazilian.

“Richardlison seems to be pretty close. Richarlison was on the sidelines before the game as a warm-up kit, but with socks and trainers. It looked like he had done something. The players have a gym in the stadium where they will do warm-ups, so if he went there and then comes out to watch the warm-up. In previous games he was there with a hoodie and a big jacket, but it looked like he was doing some fitness work,” Gold said.

don’t risk it

While it’s a boost for Spurs to have another attacking option available to them this weekend against Leeds, Richarlison shouldn’t be risked for this game.

The striker has the biggest month of his career ahead as he heads into the World Cup, and the last thing he needs is to be sent off from injury and risk tweaking something before to go to Qatar.

The team always comes first, of course, but in this situation Richarlison needs to take it easy and make sure he’s ready for Brazil’s World Cup campaign.

CHICAGO (WLS) — “Alaska Daily” is ABC’s new hit series. It stars Jeff Perry, best known for his role as the villainous Cyrus in “Scandal.”

The actor grew up on the North Shore and is one of the founders of the Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago. He spoke with ABC7 about playing a reporter with Hilary Swank.

Stanley Cornick is the editor of an Alaskan newspaper who has recruited a top investigator for his team. He said he drew inspiration for the role from Chicago’s strong journalism heritage.

“Growing up and reading the Mike Roykos, the Studs Terkels and some of Chicago’s journalism legends, up to today, like you!” said Perry.

“He’s been doing this for so long, he knows the ins and outs,” added Swank. “He’s hilarious, he keeps it light on set, he’s just a bullet, and he’s so talented, he’s so good on the show.”

“Hilary Swank, the rest of this cast, how could you not be amazed at this combination of work ethic and talent?” said Perry.

But Stanley is a little different from Cyrus.

“Stanley, for his part, is trustworthy and he’s honest,” Perry said. “Cyrus is a troublemaker. He has spent more time studying the devil than he has ever spent studying an angel.”

Perry said he’s grateful to be at a point in his career where he can play rich and rewarding characters.

“Wait, I can do this until I drop,” Perry said. “If I can remember the lines and can walk, I can do it. What a joyous thing, I can be in the carnival until the end!”

It was while working in the Stockton office that he met his wife, Mavis, and they were together for 63 years.

The past few years have been difficult for the veteran broadcaster as he battled Lewy body dementia.

His family said: “For such a wonderful storyteller to have his beloved words stolen was incredibly cruel.
