Ford plays Mike Pomeroy, veteran reporter and new Daybreak co-anchor, in this comedy directed by Roger Michell. Becky, an ambitious TV producer, accepts a job at a struggling morning show, a position that almost seems to be too much to handle. Co-starring Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdams and Jeff Goldblum.
What is news? It’s hard to quantify. Certainly news has changed completely, and the morning shows are not really designed to bring you the news, except to tell you what happened overnight, and the rest of it is a kind of magazine mentality—a little bit of this, a little bit of that. It’s harder to be an educated and informed citizen.
