Doesn't seem so far fetched now.

Sure doesn't. It predicted a lot of what is going on today. That the TV generation would lose some of their humanity and live their lives vicariously thru TV characters and be more prone to crime. And most importantly, the way that the news became entertainment and how corporations just bought and paid for the "news".

Yep. At the time it was considered outrageous, almost farcical.

Now, it's still a good movie, but kind of matter of fact. Reality has imitated art.
