     December 23, 2013

This week on The Collision, we discuss Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which leads us to talking about the scourge of 24-hour news networks, the prevalence of infotainment, the double-edged sword the Internet plays in the dissemination of information, and the public’s culpability in these results.  It’s surprisingly substantive conversation resulting from a movie where the protagonist bottle-feeds a shark.  And as always, we finish up with our recommendations.
