The ideal journalist! The rogue reporter! This lively book on the presentation of journalism in film has it all. The list of contributors has as much star-quality as the movies discussed, with expert ethics educators telling readers which movies they'll be showing in their classes this term and why. This book deserves space on the shelf of every scholar who thinks seriously about journalism ethics or about the presentation of journalism in popular culture.
