Cable, Satellite and Telco TV
Compare and contrast the representation of the news in the film Network to how modern news shows on cable and network TV is treated. Is this film purely satirical, or is there any truth to the representations? I encourage you to watch PBS, Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, CSPAN and network (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX) news programs to support your arguments.
