Tells the story of Hollywood's depiction of American journalism from the start of the sound era. This work argues that films have relentlessly played off the image of the journalist as someone who sees through lies and hypocrisy, sticks up for the little guy, and serves democracy.
"[Ehrlich does ] an incredible job of showing the image of the journalist in the movies and how that influences the public." Herald Review "In his insightful and engaging Journalism in the Movies, Matthew Ehrlich points out that both the hard-boiled newshound and the bloodless, unswerving truth-seeker are recognizable Hollywood archetypes that, paradoxically, reflect and refract real-world experiences of the authors and screenwriters (mostly ex-scribes) who created them."
