Morton Downey Jr.

Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie is a documentary on the late Morton Downey Jr., whose vile confrontational style paved the way for the likes of Howard Stern, Jerry Springer, Maury Povitch, and even Ted Baxter…er, I mean Bill O’Reilly. While I came to like Stern through his terrestrial-radio heyday, the others I mention are shite, a race to the bottom.

Directed by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger, Évocateur contains interviews with the likes of Glenn Beck, Herman Cain, Pat Buchanan, Chris Elliott, Gloria Allred, Al Sharpton, and Sally Jessy Raphael.

Good grief!

Here’s the trailer:
