I made a whole bunch of journalism-inspired memes about a year ago or so and I thought I’d use this blog site to “archive” some of them! Keep in mind you might not “get” all of these references…unless you have ever worked in the “biz!” I worked as a news reporter for about 10 years between the years of 1995 and 2005. Without “burying the lede,” how about some memes now?
Sally Field in a scene from the 1981 film Absence of Malice.
Peter Finch (posthumous Oscar winner) in the 1976 film Network.
Jason Robards in All The President’s Men.
Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in His Girl Friday.
Another scene from His Girl Friday.
Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman in All The President’s Men.
Sally Field and Sydney Pollack, director of Absence of Malice.
Stanley Tucci in Spotlight. This reminds me of a really, really vile news editor with whom I had a very “oil and water” relationship with (what a bastard)! I hated him so much that I would purposely schedule interviews during staff meetings to avoid having to interact with him.
