Storyline

Frank Kenley faces a number of moral dilemmas when dealing with the latest scandal: a teacher accused of sexually assaulting a student. While trying to keep the case in court, rather than trying the teacher on television, an underhanded producer takes the matter out of his hands and succumbs to a Hearst-esque style of "yellow journalism".

TV news anchor faces moral dilemma
20 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this movie basically about a moral and ethical dilemma facing a popular news anchor.martin Sheen Plays news anchor Frank Kenley,newly hired by a news station flailing in low ratings.Kenley is brought on board because he is respected int thee field,and it is hoped he will bring the stations ratings up.things go well,until Frank is faced with moral dilemma,whether to go public with some information that may damage a certain individual'd reputation,or withhold the information,and not letting the public know the story,possibly endangering others in the process.Kendry is faced with 2 obstacles- rookie reporter/co anchor Christine Arnold (Sheree.J.Wilson)whose enthusiasm and inexperience only make things worse-and his boss Eric Ross(Peter Riegert)who has no moral centre and will do whatever it takes to increase ratings,no matter who gets hurt.this is a made for TV movie(1985)but it is pretty well done.good acting all around and an important issue:morals and ethics.this can be applied to life in general,not just in the news room and you can't help but think about it after the credits roll.i've said this before,i don't normally go in for issue and moral type movies,but this movie is also entertaining,and well done. 8/10
