Long before O'Reilly and Beck, Morton Downey, Jr., was tearing up the talk-show format with his divisive populism. Between the fistfights, rabid audience, and Mort's cigarette smoke always “in your face,” The Morton Downey Jr. Show was billed as “3-D television,” “rock and roll without the music.” Évocateur meditates on the hysteria that ended the '80s and ultimately its most notorious agitator.
