To some degree, the ways cinema depicts journalism, and female journalists in particular, haven’t changed much since the 194os, when Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant pursued headlines—and each other—in Howard Hawks’ His Girl Friday. With The Post currently espousing the virtues of the free press in theaters, this episode of Popcorn Politics, The A.V. Club’s collaboration with Scrappers Film Group, explores the way gender roles and journalistic ethics have been depicted on screen, and how they come together in James L. Brooks’ 1987 romantic comedy Broadcast News, which turned 30 last month.
