As someone who has a soft spot for movies about journalism (but generally not this variety - profiles are nice, biopics are nice, but it's a real thrill to watch journalists 'do the work' - think Spotlight) I always find myself reacting to them in sort of a bittersweet way.
Journalism's golden age has come and passed. I don't know if women in general ever got that golden chance. I know a few great writers around my age today who will never be fairly acknowledged for the good and tireless work they do, because people in the year 2019 will take good and tireless work with the same grain of salt they take with the inane ramblings of a social recluse with a Twitter account. Not for any fault of their own, but because a constant, unrelenting barrage of news via social media has created an untrustworthy news cycle and untrusting news readers. It's kind of sad, hey?
