Don't Look Up

I thought it was a pretty good movie. Some decent satirical bits, overall maybe not very satisfying.

I was quite amused that a lot of journalists were complaining about the movie using the "trope" of a woman journalist sleeping with her source. And, yes, movies do that and it is a very bad movie trope!

But if all the very serious journalists consider the host of a morning infotainment show character a "journalist" and a guest on the show to be a "source" then, I dunno man, I think the problem is with the concept of journalism and maybe the movie has a point.
