(…of news reporting and broadcast journalism, anyway)
I’m going to find some way to see this movie about Edward R. Murrow. I don’t really have anything else to say about it yet, except that I’m sure it will provide some context that is desperately needed today, not just regarding the news business, but how too many people unquestioningly accept the spoon-fed pap that passes for information without realizing that they are not being informed enough to make the correct decisions as citizens.
So basically, this is a free plug, for whatever it’s worth (and thanks to George Clooney…by the way, there were a lot of problems in the fourth “Batman” movie, but he should’ve been wearing the costume through all four of them).
Update 10/14: Clooney's movie, based on this review, sounds like a masterpiece.
(By the way, in their day, Murrow and his "boys" would have walked rather than put up with something like this from their network.)
Update 10/10: This is what the above Media Matters link is referring to, by the way (with Freeh and his self-sastisfied mug showing all of the loyalty to his boss that Brutus showed to Caesar).
