'Nightcrawler' and the ethics of breaking news
Dan Gilroy made his directorial debut with "Nightcrawler"--a high intensity film about a freelance photographer that sells grisly footage of accidents and crime scenes to network news stations.
The film exposes the underbelly of TV news production and raises questions about its ethics.
On this week's Friday Roundtable we discuss some of the issues and tactics involved in covering breaking news.
