Once again the press displays a fluid set of standards, based on the target of the story.
This weekend is busy for Hollywood as there are a number of new films flooding into theaters, with two very prominent titles opening side by side. One motion picture is an Academy Awards-worthy drama based on real-life events from a major studio with numerous Oscar winners involved in a scathing critique of the journalism complex. The other title — can be described exactly the same way. But there is a glaring difference in how the two films are being interpreted in the press.
‘’Bombshell’’, from Lionsgate, highlights the sexual harassment scandal that swept through the Fox News Corporation. Charlize Theron is already considered assured of an Oscar nomination for portraying Megyn Kelly, with Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie also receiving praise.
