Do yourself a favor: Rent the 1957 film “A Face In The Crowd” and let yourself be creeped out by Andy Griffith. Yes, that Andy Griffith. And marvel at how eerily prescient it is of the modern confluence of TV and radio demagogues with politics and corporate interests.

Watch it and see who it reminds you of. Keith Olbermann was sure. That’s why he dubbed a certain (now former) Fox News personality with a moniker inspired by this film.
