One more NPR bit...

In light of the Sinclair Broadcast Group's foul decision not to air the Nightline tribute to the US troops who have died in Iraq, I thought it would be good to hear this NPR story again, in which Walter Cronkite remembers the landmark TV series See It Now, which helped expose the extremist actions of Senator Joseph McCarthy.

It reminded me that the fight against censorship is an ever-present battle, with history that we can actually learn from. You know, the history that people are always claiming they never want to repeat?
