Fighting For Journalism.

5 Dec

Last night, I watched the movie Morning Glory (with Rachel McAdams from “The Notebook). It is essentially about a journalist who loves her job and fights like hell to succeed.

Here’s a synopsis:

When hard-working TV producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) is fired from a local news program, her career begins to look as bleak as her hapless love life. Stumbling into a job at “Daybreak” (the last-place national morning news show), Becky decides to revitalize the show by bringing on legendary TV anchor Mike Pomeroy (Ford). Unfortunately, Pomeroy refuses to cover morning show staples like celebrity gossip, weather, fashion and crafts — let alone work with his new co-host, Colleen Peck (Keaton), a former beauty queen and longtime morning show personality who is more than happy covering morning “news.” As Mike and Colleen clash, first behind the scenes and then on the air, Becky’s blossoming love affair with fellow producer, Adam Bennett (Wilson) begins to unravel — and soon Becky is struggling to save her relationship, her reputation, her job and ultimately, the show itself.

After watching Morning Glory, I was reminded just how much I love journalism. I only hope that one day I can have as much drive and determination to be a journalist. I want to fight as much as Rachel McAdam’s character. I want to fight to be a journalist.
