on the day of today, april 07Journalist Day is celebrated – a day that attracts both the attention of those who respect the profession and understand its importance, as well as those who constantly belittle the hard work of those whose only idea is to bring the truth to the public.
Feelings aside, the journalistic profession is not restricted to the real world, as it has also been represented countless times in the culture pop cinematographic, television, graphic and other areas, immortalizing characters that would be marked in our memory and that would go down in history as some of the best constructed of all time.
With that in mind and celebrating today’s date, the CinePOP prepared another special article listing 7 of the great journalists who have become icons of the audiovisual scene – from Miranda Priestly, from ‘The devil Wears Prada’to Gale Weathers, the saga’s reporter slasher ‘Panic’.
Check out our picks below and tell us which one is your favorite:
Bridget Jones is not only one of the most memorable journalists in the culture pop, as well as one of the most beloved and well-known characters of all time. Jones, which was played by Renée Zellweger in theaters and even won praise from fans and critics. Jones works for a publishing house as a reporter and, unlike what we might expect from the scenario mainstreamshe escapes stereotypes and presents a new side of the profession, focusing on a human and comic side that conquers us from the beginning.
How to leave Gale Weathers out? The iconic reporter of the saga slasher ‘Panic’lived by Courteney Coxrepresents one of the darkest sides of journalism and surrenders to media sensationalism to cover the growing Woodsboro murders, becoming the star of a series of tragedies in the city – even taking a punch from Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell). Despite starting out as something of an antagonist, Gale becomes one of Sidney’s closest friends and helps to unravel the serial killer behind the Ghostface mask.
It’s impossible to dissociate Lois Lane from Clark Kent, which is why the duo appears together on our list. both work at Daily Planet and they have an extremely successful career: Lois is one of the best investigative reporters at the newspaper in question, even winning the Pulitzer Prize (the highest honor given to journalists); Clark also works as a reporter at the same location as Lois – and it’s no surprise that they’ve developed a romantic relationship over time.
Tintin is one of the figures who best represent the incessant and instigating journalistic work. titular protagonist of the comic book series ‘The Adventures of Tintin’the hero was created by the Belgian cartoonist Hergé and was built from a neutral personality, which allows him to analyze the facts with greater rationality and without being carried away by the emotion of the moment. As if that weren’t enough, he gets involved with the most different adventures that lead him to investigate practically unsolvable mysteries – such as the case of the Unicorn’s Treasure, which was taken by Steven Spielberg to the big screen in 2012.
If you haven’t lived under a rock in the last two decades, you’ve probably heard of the name Miranda Priestly. the antagonist of ‘The devil Wears Prada’interpreted by Meryl Streep (who even earned an Oscar nomination for his incredible performance), is editor-in-chief of Runway, one of the biggest fashion magazines on the planet. Her ruthless and acid personality is constantly criticized by those who want to remove her from power, causing a certain commotion even in Andrea (Anne Hathaway), a newly hired intern who begins to understand why Miranda acts the way she does.
Interpreted by Orson Welles in the acclaimed and historic feature film ‘Citizen Kane’, Charles Foster Kane serves to this day as an inspiration for countless characters in film and television. Welles, who also directed and wrote the film, built the protagonist’s personality from the mogul. William Randolph Hearsta written media personality who became known for creating the “brown press” – that is, the sensationalist press that uses spectacular and exaggerated headlines to grab public attention and cause widespread commotion.
