June 2, 2020

Robert Thompson, television, radio and film trustee professor and director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture, was interviewed for the Deseret News article, "Does anyone else feel uncomfortable watching movies now?"

“Like all of a sudden, the most terrifying thing about ‘Jurassic Park’ is the social proximity of crowds, not the fact that dinosaurs are trying to take over the island,” said Thompson.
