the threat of Communism created an air of paranoia in the United States and exploiting those fears was Senator Joseph McCarthy. CBS reporter Edward R. Murrow and his producer Fred W. Friendly decided to take a stand and challenge McCarthy and expose him for the fear monger he was. However, their actions took a great personal toll on both men, but they stood by their convictions and helped to bring down one of the most controversial senators in American history.

Its sad thing that edward R Murrow had to die in the end and also sadden that CBS was cancelled and was move to Sunday after noon instead of Friday nights at 10 pm. they have worked so hard to make difference in everyone lives and they try to open people minds to whats is going around them instead of being blinded and controlled by others, mostly like puppet.

Justice Department Investigation Is Sought in Florida Teenager’s Shooting Death 


the fact that a 17 year old boy was shot in cold blood bring up concerns about how Florida law system works, basically the it allows people to kill people outside of their homes if they are in reasonable fear for their lives its low standards. even so it doesn't give George Zimmerman who's 28yrs of age and weights more then the victim the rights to shot a person who's unarmed and caring skittles and ice tea drink claiming it was self defense. its seems to me its more of heavy rascal over tone, which can results to dispute against different races.
