Publication Date: 2015-09-22
"A wildly entertaining biography of the trailblazing Washington columnist and the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for commentary.

She was a trailblazing columnist who achieved national syndication and reported from the front lines of American politics for five decades."

Edward R. Murrow and the Birth of Broadcast Journalism by Bob Edwards
Call Number: PN4874.M89 E38 2004
Publication Date: 2004-04-01
Long before the era of the news anchor, the pundit, and the mini-cam, one man blazed a trail that thousands would follow. Edwards brings to life the great stories Murrow covered and brought into American living rooms for the first time--the rooftop reports of the London Blitz, bombing raids over Berlin, and the 1954 broadcast that helped bring down Senator Joe McCarthy--as well as the ups and downs of his career at CBS. Edwards reveals how Murrow dramatically impacted public opinion and how the high standards he lived by influenced an entire generation of broadcasters.
