Abstract

This film reveals the history behind journalist Edward R. Murrow's encounter with Sen. Eugene McCarthy at the height of anti-communism in early Cold War America. Murrow and his CBS news team face down accusations of communism after they file a controversial story. The on-air debate between Murrow and McCarthy coincided with McCarthy's downfall in 1953. Murrow's defense of broadcast journalism asserted its critical role in educating the public.
