good night, and good luck

as stated by gareth kay some time ago, Good Night, And Good Luck is a worthy movie and a powerful tale of integrity and the price of truth. Directed by George Clooney, the black and white picture illustrates the American television and journalism industry during the roaring fifties, its plot being built around the attempt of veteran CBS journalist Edward Murrow to bring down Senator Joseph McCarthy. David Strathairn manages a gorgeous performance, and for some reason, the movie reminded me of the masterpiece Citizen Kane.
Another observation would be that Participate.net (Movies have the power to inspire. You have the power to act. Participate!) was inspired by "Good night, And Good Luck" for the Report it Now project, which invites people to take the Media into their own hands.
