In The Mailbag:  Jacob Chandler writes in, “I am a huge fan of the podcast. I love listening to you guys every day on my way to school. I am currently going to the University of Southern Mississippi with a study in Mass Communication and Journalism. Right now, I am interested in finding movies that have to deal with journalism and research. The film Spotlight was a big inspiration to me in this area, an honest and profound way of showing good people digging deep to find the truth. My question to you guys is what movies would you recommend that have to do with journalism that is presented in this kind of real and true way? Documentary or feature film. Thank you guys so much for the podcast, as well as the site. Keep up the awesome work!!”

Peter’s Picks: Almost Famous, Shattered Glass, Page One

HT’s Picks: His Girl Friday, All The President’s Men

Brad’s Picks: Nobody Speak, Good Night and Good Luck
