Who Thought of That?: "Anchorman" at the Newseum

The Partnership

"Anchorman: The Exhibit" at Washington, D.C.'s Newseum, with items from the 2004 movie

Natural Benefits

The news museum gets a rare pop-culture boost; the movie's upcoming sequel, again starring Will Ferrell, gets a PR boost.

The Origins

Will Ferrell was here last summer and thought there might be a way to collaborate. In the 1970s, men really owned the anchor chair, and women had to struggle against sexism to get the top jobs.
