Summary
It's 1953, and the piece of talking furniture called TV is still a novelty in America's living rooms. On it, Sen. Joseph McCarthy uses fear, falsehooods and belligerence to become arguably the most powerful man in the land. On it , newsman Edward R. Murrow, who's had his fill of the senator's tactics, fights back. That pivotal clash of two titans is the focus of director/co-writer George Clooney's award-winning Good Night, and Good Luck. David Strathairn portrays Murrow, the principled "face of television" who maps his strategy with his producer and confidant, Fred Friendly (Clooney). A deft ensemble plays staff members in the bustling battleground that is the CBS newsroom. McCarthy is in the mix, too, intecut into the action via real-life footage. Don't touch that dial. A media and a nation are going to change - while on the air
