An early treatment of television's potential as a powerful medium, this casts Byrd as a news reporter who exposes a crooked candidate in a mayoral race. At the same time, New York is clobbered by a tidal wave and earthquake, both hitting at once. The underlying message is that television can be a powerful weapon in the hands of the wrong people.
