A Murrow Moment
Looking back at McCarthy-era paranoia and Edward Murrow's radio broadcasts, William Fisher writes, "There's a reason I cite all this old radio-days history. Then, as now, there was little and largely ineffective public push-back against right-wing radio 'news.' Then, as now, networks controlled the airwaves, and sponsors controlled the networks. Today, we have television as well as radio. And today, both are still controlled by large corporate interests - owners and sponsors."
