I cannot help but think of the stage play Command Decision, which became a bang-up motion picture with Clark Gable as a general making unpopular but necessary "command decisions," and Charles Bickford as a war correspondent who, in the end, sees the wisdom of that general's decision-making. What either man would make of the disgusting spectacle that is the modern press, I can't imagine.
