Some quotes from legendary CBS newsman Edward R Murrow:

On Winston Churchill: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle to steady his fellow countrymen and hearten those Europeans upon whom the long dark night of tyranny had descended."

On the Vietnam War: "Anyone who isn't confused doesn't really understand the situation."

"When the politicans complain that TV turns their proceedings into a circus, it should be made plain that the circus was already there, and that TV has merely demonstrated that not all the performers are well trained."
