When Media Nation met Suldog

This past Saturday, I had the honor of introducing the 2005 film “Good Night, and Good Luck,” about the life of Edward R. Murrow, at the Boston Athenaeum, part of a “Civic Discourse” series it’s running along with Suffolk University.

I also had a chance to meet Jim Sullivan, who writes the excellent local blog Suldog, as well as Mrs. Suldog. Jim has got some interesting things to say about Murrow and the how the media landscape has changed since the 1950s, when Murrow’s CBS program “See It Now” played a major role in ending the witch-hunting career of Sen. Joseph McCarthy.
