CBS Evening News Wins Murrow Award For "Best Newscast" – Media on The Huffington Post

Well, she did interview many of the candidates and it was shown online not that its part of the award I gather. The “Couric & Co.” site and “Couric’s Notebook” is good “journalism” in the midst of one of the most competitive times in it for our attention.

A cousin, George Murray, an award-winning news producer at NBC who directed “Huntley and Brinkley” when drafted from the film editing room, had worked for the US Army Signal Corps training films after serving as a US Army Captain in the Korean War, (pers. comm. from Edwin Newman noted television journalist and author of “Strictly Speaking”) was a CBS news producer for the 1976 Republican and Democratic conventions in 1976. I think he would have been happy that there is now so much “enthusiasm” for the news and many sources of it, and of course the new Newseum. The BBC the other day unveiled a lighted modern “torch” (I think) on top of their news building dedicated to the journalists who have died in gathering the information we try to use to make decisions and understand the rest of the story. Congratulations.

However, the “fake” news guys in the current administration should be seen as a reason to be vigilant and wary. How many government reports have been falsely “fielded” and now, especially, a part of the secondary school curriculum, is this the new “Big Brother” they’re watching?
