"Good Night, and Good Luck"

I just saw it, and really like it because I'm a lot like Murrow: accurate, impassioned, fearless, etc...

But, seriously, it is a GREAT film. See it! There's a lot of file footage of "the junior senator from Wisconsin" (McCarthy) beating up on "the little guy" in Senate hearings, and director/writer George Clooney cleverly uses those clips with superb acting from David Strathairn.

New York's newsrooms in those days must have been a pressure cooker, much like what I face today in Southeast Arizona.
