The second season of Aaron Sorkin's HBO series The Newsroom is tackling this subject. I think they're doing a good job.


Jeff Daniels as the fictional news anchor Will McAvoy just kills it in this series. He's a Republican who can't stand to see what his party has become - and has anger issues because of this and his messed-up personal life. He really takes it out on the OWS spokesperson in an on-air interview. It's classic.

There is a solution. Trials and hangings. Preferably in that order, but I won't be a fanatic about it.
