Mad City

This is an amazing story of manipulation. The storyline shows how easily persuaded not only one man but also the entire mass population can be influenced.

After seeing this drama I’m beginning to believe that the press can do the same. All they have to do is simply report what aspects of a particular story they want us to hear. Depending of course on what paper who read or what news station(s) you watch. You will unequivocally believe one-way ore the other. With the multitude of news channels now a days you may even have several opinions. 
The in-depth character development is a astonishing. The acting is equally as amazing. The script is pretty dame good as well. The stereotypical male egos are put head to head in a virtual pissing contest of epic proportions. 

This movie is mesmerizing from its initial concept. The jaw-dropping ending adds perfect punctuation to this exclamation of a movie. All I have to say is; prepare to have a bottle of water in front of you to add much needed moisture to an inevitably dry mouth. 

This movie is a thought-proving masterpiece. You will be thinking about this one for a long time to come. I’ll have to pay the writer his props. This movie will stick in my craw for a while.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
