In this week’s podcast of On The Media there was a segment about the new movie, “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”. The movie is based off of journalist Kim Barker who Tina Fey portrays. The podcast interviewed Barker about her experience being a journalist.
She stated there are differences between covering a war and a local zoning board, “there is similar skills, you have to gather info and write, but in a conflict zone you have a team of people you can trust- ‘fixers’ set up interviews that you are safe, its a symbiotic relationship”.
I recently saw the trailer for the movie but I’m apprehensive about going to the cinema. I see Fey as such a comedic actor and I’m curios how they are going to turn a war movie into a comedy genre. What do you guys think? Have you heard about the movie and are you planning on going to see it?
