Subject: media mogul villains
for a class I'm teaching, I'm trying to come up with a list of movies that
have as their villains corrupt/monopolistic media moguls (who work in any
medium: film, TV, print, etc.). Bankers and the oil industry gets nailed all
the time, but I know there are movies out there in which the evildoers are
media types: I'm just having a hard time coming up with them. I'm interested
in the way in which the media commodify their own self-critique.
Thanks for your thoughts.
