** The movie's whole message of television and corporations as these amoral, unstoppable and dehumanizing things is kind of a 1970s thing. To be sure, private media conglomerates and ratings chasing are still things, but nowadays its more straightforward profiteering and yellow journalism. In other word's, Diane ruined media because she's a soulless automaton, Rupert Murdoch does it because he likes money.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Although parts could just as easily apply to the present day. Many of the changes to the station in general and the news in particular were meant to be overblown exaggerations of then-current trends, now they're things that happened thirty years ago and standard industry practices (other than the open terrorist connections and assassination).
