ASSIGNMENT? See the movie, "Good Night, and Good Luck"; discuss Nov. 10
The movie, Good Night, and Good Luck should be a must see for anyone
interested in journalism. It's been running at the mall cinemas and is now
starting up a two-week run at Images Cinema in Williamstown.
I hope that by our class of Nov. 10, everyone will have seen it and we'll
spend about 15 minutes discussing it.
