Tonight Jimmy came over and we got pizza and watched this movie (Benjamin and Maple too). Good Night, and Good Luck is a well-crafted story about Edward R. Murrow’s scrutiny of Sen. McCarthy’s House on Un-American Activities Commission (HUAC) investigations in 1953. It’s a well put together rendition of the events of the time that leaves you pondering the status of our country today and the absence of well-known journalists with the integrity and guts of Murrow. And of course, the absence of media companies willing to air such truth and the seeming disinterest of most Americans to hear it.
