How I Handled the Good Movie Weekend

Two down: “Good Night, and Good Luck” and “Walk the Line.”

I really enjoyed “Good Night, and Good Luck”. This is a great movie and I cannot recommend that you go see it soon enough. It is the story of Edward R. Murrow’s dismantling of the McCarthy’s terror apparatus. Edward Murrow never was complacent about the role that the media can play. He never stopped questioning the role of the media or the danger that corporate influence in the news machinery represented.

Memorable quotes:

“See It Now” can’t take on the Hearst press and McCarthy at the same time"
