Hillary Clinton supporter, San Francisco real estate developer, and Harvard center head Walter Shorenstein is complaining about pro-Barack Obama bias by the MSM. Beth Fouhy of the Associated Press writes (link):
..."I am absolutely outraged with the media coverage of the presidential campaign," Shorenstein wrote in the memo, which was obtained by The Associated Press. "This is the most important election in my long lifetime, and to quote one of my favorite movies, 'I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!'"A search for Network "peter finch" "mentally disturbed" only turned up one relevant hit that I could see, and apparently his character was undergoing a nervous breakdown. Whatever the case, it's not really relevant to the reference, and it's perilously close to saying something like, "he said in a crazy way" or similar.
He was quoting the 1976 movie "Network," in which a mentally disturbed television news anchor played by Peter Finch went on the air and implored viewers to rebel against gimmicks staged by network news executives.
