Edward R. Murrow is largely responsible for the cult of personality surrounding modern news anchors, establishing the position through the sheer force of his own personality. Aware of his own status, Murrow often took it upon himself to find and present news he thought important, including this look at the harsh world of migrant farm workers, picking their way from Indiana to Florida in the wake of the crops. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi

Edward R. Murrow: The McCarthy Years
Edward R. Murrow, in his career as a journalist, set high standards of integrity and truthfulness that even today are difficult to match. Perhaps these qualities were most evident during the Red Scare when a man named Joseph McCarthy waved an alarmist flag and kept a nation petrified. Almost no one would stand up to the misanthropic senator until Murrow did, exposing McCarthy for the propagandist he truly was. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi
This documentary examines the career of legendary journalist Edward R. Murrow, whose frontline coverage of World War II and courageous confrontation of J. Edgar Hoover during the height of McCarthyism made him a heroic figure in his field.
