Video Gallery: The Movies That Made You Want To Be A Journalist

Don't lie kids. There's nothing wrong with staving off career burnout and despair by watching Robert Redford make Bob Woodward look good in All the President's Men. You know you've done it and you've probably got the 1976 Watergate flick to blame for your outsized career expectations. The chase! The glory! The downsizing! The infotainment! Erm, sorry-the chase!
