Couldn't resist posting this trailer.  How prescient Sidney Lumet and  Paddy Chayefsky were back in 1976.  The movie still sticks with me in the way Peter Finch portrayed Howard Beale.  It would seem many of these conservative talk show hosts today have styled themselves after Beale without recognizing that this movie was a wicked satire on the news and entertainment business.
