THE IMAGE OF THE BROADCAST JOURNALIST
IN MOVIES AND TELEVISION
1937-2006



THE 2006 IJPC ASSOCIATES PREMIUM DVD

2:48:00 -- 200 clips
Produced by Joe Saltzman
Edited by Lee Warner

A two-hour-and-48-minute video compilation for IJPC Associates members containing 200 movie and television clips tracing the image of the broadcast journalist in films and television from 1937 to 2006.

This disc can be used in a variety of ways. It is the perfect introduction to any communications class on the image of the broadcast journalist in popular culture. It could be used in any class on broadcast journalism, media, ethics, communication studies or any class discussing the role of the broadcast journalist in film and television or the image of women in film and television.

* * *

The image of the broadcast journalist in popular culture is one that builds on the worst characteristics of real-life TV journalists seen on live television news and exaggerates that portrayal into one of the most ridiculed figures in journalism today. Female TV journalists have been singled out for derision as beauties without any brains or news experience. Joining them are the male anchors who, since Ted Baxter in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, have become objects of ridicule, laughable symbols that mock TV anchors on local news broadcasts throughout the country. Of all the images of the journalists in popular culture, the broadcast journalist is the most negatively portrayed time and again.

TV anchors and reporters prove irresistible to many writers in fiction, movies and TV – they are either depicted as attractive airheads who worry more about the way they look and sound than what they are saying or tough-minded professionals who are constantly at odds with producers, news directors and general managers who are only interested in ratings and profits.

Ironically enough, the two most positive images of the journalist in popular culture turn out to be female TV journalists – Mary Richards played by Mary Tyler Moore in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, which was on TV from 1970-1977 and Murphy Brown played by Candice Bergen in Murphy Brown, which was on TV from 1988-1998. Richards starts out as the insecure cub reporter-type working as an associate producer in the Minneapolis WJM-TV newsroom and by the end of the series becomes a self-assured professional ready to move on to bigger things affirmed by Mary and Rhoda, the 2000 TV movie updating her fictional history. Murphy Brown is the old-fashioned reporter who doesn’t let anything get in the way of her story or her work as a journalist. She won't let go of the passion that makes her one of the most successful TV reporters in the business and a role model for thousands of women. She got her job at the newsmagazine FYI in 1977, the year Mary Richards was fired from WJM and the same year her boss, Lou Grant, took over as city editor for the Los Angeles Tribune in the Lou Grant TV series.

You really can’t blame the public for confusing fictional TV reporters with the real thing. Murphy Brown obliterated the fine line between reality and fiction almost two decades ago. She seems to live in the real world, not the world of TV sitcoms. Real journalists are frequent guests and they talk to Murphy as if she is their equal. Away from the television program, Murphy Brown was treated in the media as if she really existed outside Candice Bergen’s persona. And when Vice President Dan Quayle got into a national debate over single mothers with Murphy Brown, reality and fiction became inseparable. Practically every major broadcast journalist appeared on the program during its decade-long run. And when Murphy greets them on camera, it is as if they are old and valued friends. Not only do real-life journalists treat Murphy as an equal, but politicians from both parties also show up to talk with her and about her. If they all accept Murphy as a real-life counterpart, then who is the audience to deny her existence?

Building on stereotypes reinforced by live TV coverage and local TV news programs, the movies and television have created indelible images:

  • The arrogant male anchor who is lost without his teleprompter and is often the source of ridicule and laughter.
  • The female TV reporter who usually makes a fool of herself whenever she goes into the field. She can be ruthless as she sleeps her way to the top.
  • The experienced TV reporter, usually male, who is fed up with the state of television news and constantly bemoans how the Edward R. Murrow legacy is dying.
  • The unscrupulous producers, news directors and station management who will do anything to get high ratings even if it means destroying people’s lives in pursuit of a sensational story.

 

The heroes are those TV journalists who against all odds work for the public good, putting the public interest above everything else and always trying to do the best job they can. They’re working in a medium where ratings are all that matter and celebrity news overwhelms everything else. They often feel as if they’re fighting a losing battle.

The villains are those who use the electronic media for their own personal, political or financial gain, who take the precious commodity of public confidence in the news media for their own selfish ends. They are mostly network presidents and station general managers who force news directors and their staffs to do whatever is necessary to get good ratings. In the 1970s, when those who owned television networks and stations discovered that news was Big Business, they decided that it was too important a commodity to leave in the hands of the journalists. For the last 35 years, the non-journalists, the businessmen, the people interested in profits and the bottom line have turned TV news into a shadow of what might have been. They are the true broadcast news villains both in fiction and real life.

Easily the most dominant and damaging image of the TV broadcast journalist in movies and television is that of the anonymous TV reporter chasing after a story. In countless movies, television programs and novels, TV journalists and their camerapersons travel in packs, armed with cameras and microphones. They cover fast-breaking news by crowding, yelling, shouting, bullying, and forcing their way into unfolding news events.

In the end, those are the images that stick in the public’s mind as they form opinions about their news media. The anonymous TV reporter is usually the image most people remember when they condemn the news media and everybody in it as arrogant, uncaring journalists who hide behind the First Amendment and free press to achieve their own selfish ends. When we think of journalists, most of us think of a favorite TV journalist whether it be interviewer Barbara Walters or Jon Stewart, who plays at being a TV anchorman, or we think of the persistent anonymous TV reporter jamming a mike in somebody’s face while the camera keeps rolling no matter what happens, no matter how excruciating the images. We don’t identify with the journalist anymore. We identify with the person who is being pursued by the camera. That person becomes us and we hate the TV journalist for embarrassing us and invading our privacy, we hate the journalist for being judgmental and arrogant. This overwhelms what most of us understand: that we need journalists to give us the news and information so we can make decisions in a democracy. Intellectually we know that to be true and we know that a free press is essential if any democracy is to survive. But when we close our eyes, all we seem to remember are the images of a menacing camera and an overbearing TV journalist, a ridiculously stupid anchorman who only cares about how he looks, or a beautiful female mispronouncing a familiar name or country.

It’s enough to make Edward R. Murrow roll over in his grave.
