Continuity mistake: Halfway through the first scene in Diana Christianson's office, the door, which had previously been open, is closed. Later, she walks over to the door and closes it again.

Factual error: In the story that Schumacher tells Howard Beale in the beginning of the film, he says that in 1951 he was sent on a remote to cover the opening of the lower level of the George Washington Bridge. The lower level, in fact, did not open until 1962.

Continuity mistake: Conchata Ferrell gets out of bed and puts on her robe, nothing else, then exits the bedroom. The next shot shows her walking down the hall and now she is also wearing slippers.

Howard Beale: We'll tell you anything you want to hear, we lie like hell.
