Who The Hell Is Newsvandal, Anyway?
JP Sottile = a freelance journalist, published historian, radio co-host and documentary filmmaker. A two-time denizen of DC. Worked at the Center for Defense Information, NewsHour, C-SPAN and as a newsmagazine producer for WJLA (ABC’s DC affiliate). Picked up two little statues from the Washington Regional Emmy machine. Wrote, produced & directed The Warning (2008). Many other credits on public interest films. Always willing to bloviate about history, journalism, politics and empire… and has done it often on radio and T.V. Inside the Headlines w/The Newsvandal, co-hosted by James Moore, airs every Friday on KRUU-FM in Fairfield, Iowa. He ethically aggregates a kick-ass newsletter that untangles the world-wide web of news. And he thinks Paddy Chayefsky really nailed it.

For those who cannot understand the reference to Paddy Chayefsky see the movie called “Network” which has William Holden, Peter Finch, Faye Dunaway, Robert DuVal and directed by Sidney Lumet. 3 acting Oscars. One for Dunaway (Best Actress). One for Finch (Best Actor). And one for Beatrice Straight (Best Supporting Actress). Great movie. Greater prophecy……
