Trial by Media Season 1 Netflix (2020) – Summary and Review It is the Latest review. It is Released on 11 May 2020. It has 6 Episodes. It is directed by Daniel H. Birman.
I would like to say thank you to Netflix for granting me the screener to the entire six episodes of this new docu-series trial by media explores and exposes the strategies through which the media would influence a criminal justice proceeding whether or not the general public realizes that they are under the set influence in today’s world.
Where the most powerful man in the country said that the press is the enemy of the people as incorrect as that lioness I don’t think that people are naive enough to think that over the years the Fourth Estate has never tried to tip the scale of power now in the case of this docu-series. I expect that you would love this summary.
The focus is narrowed down to just these few examples in which the courtroom is the theatre with the protagonists and the antagonists being subject to change depending on which way the rating wind blows produced by supper club productions in association with smokehouse pictures and directed by Skye Boardman Garrett Bradley Yan’s Ford Brian McKeon Ciara Pettingill and Tony ascender in our modern media landscape.
I hope that you must like the summary. This is also a good summary. Where real courtroom dramas have increasingly been transformed into a form of entertainment trial by media reflects on some of the most dramatic and most memorable trials in recent history since television coverage introduced a new emphasis on creative storytelling and showmanship into the legal system.
The courtroom has never been the same over six compelling parts trial by media explores the many ways in which the press has contributed to reshaping public perception about guilt or innocence before during or after a trial.
This series features cases reaching across different areas of the law many of which are still shocking to this day so there’s an episode about the Jenny Jones talk-show murder case there’s an episode about Rod Blagojevich’s corruption and then there’s the Big Dance tavern rape case which inspired the movie.
They accused and then there’s the subway vigilante which loosely inspired director Todd Phillips ‘as Joker’s subway murder scene in the movie. hope you will like this summary.
Joker each of these six segments probably has the potential to be extended into a standalone full-length doc you know in my opinion trial by media is pretty objective in laying out the facts giving you the backgrounds of the key people involved mixing it of course with archival footage very chronological and very thorough it even shares with you at the end.
Who’s who among the Talking Heads featured recently get in trouble with the law as well but what separates this from other court TV shows is as I implied earlier it’s the examination of the role that the media plays it starts out strong up until episode three but then episode four comes along and the show kind of takes a bit of a nosedive.
It seems that the producers don’t have enough to highlight the media’s part in Richard Scrushy’s case so that whole particular episode resorts to the one common denominator that ties all these episodes together which is how the attorneys from both sides try to manipulate.
I hope that you will like this review. The jury into giving a verdict that’s in their favor the episodes that leave a huge impression on me the most are the subway vigilante and the big dance Tavern rape.
These are the two episodes that I think really go to town in showing you how self-serving the media can be how the media can build you up one day and then dismantle you the next and kick you to the curb faster than you can say I thought you guys loved me I’m not a psychologist but it’s also fascinating to see the reaction from the general public on these two cases.
They would instantly parrot the media’s talking point if Phil Donahue said well did she ask for it was she wearing something sexy that night it couldn’t be rape if she asked for it right and then it immediately cuts to regular folks even women regular random folks on the streets echoing.
The same exact sentences so in a lot of ways watching trial by media has been an eye-opening experience more importantly on the fact that we as humans would treat our darkest nature like a dirty rag that we keep hidden in the drawer occasionally.
We’d take them out just as sniff it every now and then while on the outside we continue to pretend to be upstanding citizens trial by media is a highly absorbing documentary series which holds up a mirror to our society it’s unbelievable that even though the media landscape has significantly changed nowadays.
The court of public opinion seems to be argued over and decided by canceled culture on Twitter but the game itself is more or less the same after all these years. I expect that you must have liked the review.
