Good Night, and Good Luck

Director:   George Clooney
Year:   2005
Language:   English
Time:   93 minutes

The fear and intimidation engendered by the anti-communist crusades of Senator Joseph McCarthy and others are the background to this exploration of Edward R. Murrow's assertions of press freedoms using his television broadcasts as a bully pulpit. Murrow also developed the radio program "This I Believe" which became the basis for this year's Common Reading Program book selection.

This is a special presentation in conjunction with Shepherd University's Common Reading Program.

Rated PG.

Post-film discussion led by Todd Cotgreave, Manager of the campus radio station WSHC-89.7 FM.
