Top 5 movies about news reporting, journalism, and dirty rotten liars

As a lover of both movies and journalism, these are my favorite cinematic combinations:

1. All The Presidents Men (the standard)

2. Ace in the Hole (everything that’s wrong about journalism; see also Nightcrawler)

3. Spotlight (almost as good as Presidents Men)

4. State of Play (So-so acting that examines “What is a journalist?”)

5. Zodiac (Freaky true-life story of a press hungry criminal)

HONORABLE MENTIONS: Nightcrawler (if it bleeds, it leads), The Post (similar in quality to State of Play, although less memorable)
