Adam Curtis made three short films for Charlie Brooker's "Newswipe"
Absolutely brilliant, I wonder how many journalists, politicians, bureaucrats or the "general public have seen this and understood its implication on their lives.
Great edit and biting commentary with RCs own brand of neo-realism mixed with brilliant juxtapositions of media. But I wouldn;t get too worried, this is just the mindset of humans 'full stop'. Wasn't this the same political behaviour that saw Julius Ceasar murdered. Only difference today is you don't have to use knives. Microphones and cameras can have the same devasting effect on any mans character.
Perhaps it's not paranoia but greater awareness of corruption? But I agree it distracts from the purpose of journalism.
