'Mad As Hell -- Not Gonna Take It Anymore!'

Here's a clip from the 1976 movie 'Network.'
If you've never seen this film (or if you haven't seen it lately) you owe it to yourself to download it or rent it and watch it promptly.
In 2000, this film was selected for preservationin the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". In 2002, it was inducted into the Producers Guild of America Hall of Fame as a film that has "set an enduring standard for U.S. American entertainment."  In 2006, Chayefsky's script was voted one of the top-ten screenplays by the Writers Guild of America, east  In 2007, the film was 64th among the Top 100 Greatest American Films as chosen by the American Film Institute, a ranking slightly higher than the one AFI had given it ten years earlier.
