What Is It About?

This is how PBS Masterpiece describes this TV show:

Set in the world of newspapers in London – its past riven by hacking scandals, its present at the mercy of the digital age and the 24-hour news cycle, its future uncertain – this razor sharp and observant drama explores the current, turbulent media landscape and the ethical dilemmas that journalists and editors face each day.

Charlotte Riley (Peaky Blinders) and Ben Chaplin (Apple Tree Yard) star, alongside Priyanga Burford (King Charles III) and David Suchet (Poirot).

What is it about?

This is how Metacritic describes this movie:

Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal), a driven young man desperate for work, discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism.

Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents.

Aided by Nina (Rene Russo), a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story.

A College Campus And News Articles About United States Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu

Unfortunately, I forgot all of my dreams from last night except for barely part of the end of my last dream, which took place during the day at a fictional college campus; but I can not remember if I went to any classes or not.

Various things happened in the dream that I can no longer remember unfortunately, I know that I talked with various college students during the dream, and much of the end of the dream took place mostly outside.

I remember a large parking lot, a sidewalk, maybe a semi-outdoor building, a building, several streets near this area, businesses and maybe dorms/apartments in the distance, and I spent time walking around this area mostly outside and sometimes inside.

One or more college groups/clubs had meetings while I was doing this and some strange/interesting things happened that I can not remember, I remember getting a bit lost eventually, and at some point I asked someone for directions; but I can not remember what I was trying to find, but I do know that eventually I wanted to return to my dorm/apartment.

There was more to this dream that I can not remember, my memory of the dream is too unclear, but I do remember at the end of the dream I was reading a news article and maybe my mom was there but I am not sure; and this part of the dream seemed to be inspired by a news article from Bing News Politics that I saw last night before going to bed as I looked at my Google News and Bing News RSS feeds.

The news article was about United States Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, the title of the news article claimed that a man with whitish colored skin with short dark-colored hair and his brother who looked similar who(m) were her newest fictional political opponent or opponent(s) in a political race/campaign I assume) had made some negative comments about Senator Landrieu, and that her political campaign was in trouble as this new political opponent or these new political opponents presented a threat to her because they were well liked.

I read the news article and it mostly talked about the opponent or opponents of Senator Landrieu but the news article never mentioned the negative comments that were allegedly made against Senator Landrieu, and no evidence was given that these negative comments were even said by her opponent(s).

I thought that this was poor journalism and I was curious so I started looking around for more news articles about this but I could not find any evidence or quotes of negative comments being made against her by this new opponent or these new opponents, and all the news articles that I read focused mostly on things (mostly positive) about her new opponent or new opponents.

I learned that the two brothers were somewhat rich, they were well liked in their community, they had good jobs, I think that they owned a boat/yacht, et cetera; but that is all that I can remember of this dream, and I woke up at some point.

The end,
