Someone might think I’m a nerd for posting this. But, I wrote an essay in grad school about a film directed by George Clooney and Grant Heslov, entitled, “Good Night and Good Luck“. The film explores media influence on public opinion. I’m not sure if you’re a history buff, but it uses the controversial and highly publicized 1954 conflict between seasoned journalist Ed Murrow and then-Junior U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy on Communism.
If you don’t know about the conflict, read up on it! Or, you can take the easy road and watch this great film.
