I got a chance to watch this movie again last night, and it is great. If you haven’t seen the film, make it a point to.
I’m horrible at writing eloquent reviews, so I’ll just sum it up and say it’s a great flick. It covers the story of some CBS reporters going straight after McCarthy in the 1950s as he was destroying peoples lives by accusing them of being Communists during the Red Scare. What’s really cool is how there are so many parallels to what was going on then to what is going on today with terrorism.
One of the best quotes, “How can we defend freedom abroad when we abandon it at home?”
Good stuff. Watch it.
