Edward R Murrow


Uploaded on Mar 20, 2009

Over the years CBS News has been considered, by many, the most newsworthy network newscast and, by others, liberally biased. Its history has been dominated by its personalities from Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather, and now Katie Couric. Ironically, all of these news persons have, after leaving CBS, critiqued television for overemphasizing entertainment values. As you watch this video of the famous television show What’s My Line?, does Edward R Murrow’s comments exemplify a commitment to newsworthy reporting or commentary? Does they also exemplify a commitment to entertainment values at the expense of newsworthy reporting or commentary?
