All The President’s Men Remixed With “Sabotage” Almost Makes Journalism Seem Edgy, Glamorous


Interesting factoid: the Watergate scandal caused enrollment in journalism schools to be at an all-time high in 1974, since budding journalists wanted to be just like Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

Could this remix of the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” with All The President’s Men, the movie that made paging through documents in a library look sexy and dangerous, cause a similar effect?

Probably not (it’s too late for that, really).

But the clip does pull off the impressive feat of turning a movie that mostly involves people typing, talking on phones, and sometimes walking briskly though hallways into something action-y and exciting. It was made by a NYU Tisch grad named Jeff Yorkes whose website is kind of funny.

Journalism! Glamorous once more.
