Network and the Election- Jennifer Collado

After watching the movie “Network,” I got a feeling as if I was experiencing this firsthand. Howard Beale’s infamous line “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it” is one that resonates with these troubling times. With this election going on, there are very opposite views being shared. This line could apply to either side of the campaign. Sanders’ supporters are fed up with the inequalities in the system while Trump supporters believe they are “losing” their country. Both sides feel extremely passionate about how they feel. The media fueled Beale’s rants much like it does with Donald Trump. They know that drama and reckless ranting will allow them to receive the ratings they sick. It is completely irresponsible of the media to believe that an election is the time to do this.
