Wolf Blitzer Co-Hosts TCM's Month of Politics in Movies

TV audiences aren't getting enough politics, right? That hasn't stopped TCM from dedicating Fridays in October to the intersection of politics and film.  This Friday, October 26,  co-hosts Ben Mankiewicz of TCM and CNN news anchor and "The Situation Room" host Wolf Blitzer start off with a triple bill including 1962's "Advise and Consent," 1964's "Seven Days in May," and 1976's "All the President's Men."  Blitzer shares how he was inspired by tactics used in "All the President's Men" to confirm a breaking news story.  Mankiewicz and Blitzer hope to use the movies as a way to engage with the current election.
