"Good Night, And, Good Luck." takes place during the early days of broadcast journalism in 1950's America. It chronicles the real-life conflict between television newsman Edward R. Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee. With a desire to report the facts and enlighten the public, Murrow, and his dedicated staff - headed by his producer Fred Friendly and Joe Wershba in the CBS newsroom - defy corporate and sponsorship pressures to examine the lies and scaremongering tactics perpetrated by McCarthy during his communist 'witch-hunts'. A very public feud develops when the Senator responds by accusing the anchor of being a communist. In this climate of fear and reprisal, the CBS crew carries on and their tenacity will prove historic and monumental.

|Why do they keep bringing out Combo HD DVD/Standard DVDs?||
It's been seven years since your post. Your statement that charging extra for packages containing discs in both Blue-Ray and standard dvd formats could cause HD to lose in the format war against Blu-Ray seems to be just what has happened. How does it feel to have the gift of prophecy?
As of now,... Read More
