1. Marty Kaplan or Jonathan Reynolds?

Kaplan has the top credit on that film, so I assume that is who you mean. Reynolds is credited with the story, Kaplan with story and screenplay.....
I'm a huge fan of naming people we are crediting with good work.....

2. Marty

It's a super discussion - scathing condemnation of media, special interests and politicians.
The head of CBS said the super pacs are good for CBS.

Thanks for the heads up.

5. This is the best Sunday show

by some distance. Marty is top drawer in terms of understanding the system.

I must have seen that movie ten times - love it.

6. The last section is down memory lane with McCarthy's ghost

Damn he tore West a new one and destroyed the new tactics against Obama.

Called on West to withdraw his comments and apologize.

10. Great watch. Destroys the media...

As with this graphic, illustrating how little local news is on the "local news". Only 22 seconds per half hour looked at issues like transportation, education, etc.
