(WMOT)&nbsp;&nbsp;--&nbsp;&nbsp;This Friday, March 9th, marks an unusual coincidence in anniversaries and significant dates in the media. In 1954 on this date, C-B-S news reporter Edward R. Murrow aired his famous <span class="yshortcuts" id="lw_1330943242_0">Joseph McCarthy</span> broadcast. And 10 years later, in 1964, also on March 9th, the U.S. Supreme Court limited the power of government officials to sue newspapers for defamatory statements made in the heat of public debate.<br /> Mon, 05 Mar 2012 14:49:38 +0000 Dr. Larry Burriss 8086 at http://wmot.org Burriss on Media: Sullivan & Murrow
