An ambitious reporter gets in way-over-his-head trouble while investigating a senator's assassination which leads to a vast conspiracy involving a multinational corporation behind every event in the world's headlines.
The opening sequence was designed to mirror that of Robert F. Kennedy's 1968 assassination.
We're in the business of reporting the news, not creating it.
Senator Hammond is killed by three shots fired at very brief intervals. The slow-firing bolt action rifle left by Parallax for police to find would hardly be plausible as Hammond's murder weapon.
