A timely reminder of what the American press once was

George Clooney's latest film feels much like the old CBS program You Are There. Hosted by Walter Cronkite, You are There re-imagined historical events, such as Lincoln's assassination and the sailing of the Mayflower, as if they had been covered by CBS reporters. In Good Night, and Good Luck, Clooney looks at CBS broadcaster Edward R. Murrow's public battle against Senator Joseph McCarthy and the anticommunist witch hunts of the 1950s in the United States. The director's careful recreation of this world and its time are so thorough that it feels as if we are there.
Considering the politics of our own day, we really are there. But even with the current upheaval in the States over the Bush junta's flagrant wiretapping and injudicious and childish "with us or against us" prattle, Clooney's film points to an even more alarming failure in contemporary America's body politic: the absence of an independent, critical media — something that existed in the early days of television.
