The character Howard Beale, played by Peter Finch in the 1976 movie “Network,” seemed to be off-kilter, until his famous speech, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this any more!” Soon people all over New York were yelling the same words out their windows, and a movement began making Beale the most popular television host in the United States.

Well, I, too, am mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this any more!
