Neil Young takes the "fake news" route for his new "Living with War" video. It's good, though R.E.M. did the same thing with "Bad Day" a couple of years back.
DULLARD TAKE: The R.E.M. clip gets a boost by having Michael Stipe as the anchor and Mike Mills as the weatherman, but "Bad Day" is a second-rate "It's the End of the World As We Know It." Thus, Young prevails on the strength of the music.
