Edward Roscoe Murrow (given name: Egbert, April 25, 1908 - April 27, 1965) was an American broadcast journalist. He first came to prominence with a series of radio news broadcasts from war-tornLondon, England during World War II, which were followed by millions of listeners in the United States and Canada. He was known for his intelligence and integrity in the delivery of the news. In 1954, he engaged in a famous, controversial televised debate with US Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-Wisconsin), regarding the likelihood of communist infiltration in American institutions.
Edward R. Murrow was a leading American journalist and broadcaster during World War II and the war againstthe Race's Conquest Fleet. Like most broadcasters, Murrow was very cagey about his location to as to make himself less of a target. He signed off as being "somewhere" in the country.
Murrow's broadcasts often ended on a light-note. On one occasion, he relayed an anecdote about a Lizard attack on a dummy airfield built by the U.S. According to Murrow, the Lizards attacked the dummy field with dummy bombs, proof, according to Murrow, that the Lizards had a sense of humor.
Edward R. Murrow was in London to cover the Second World War. In a broadcast in October 1942, Murrow reported that the Britishaircraft carrier, HMS Ark Royal, had been sunk by a Germanu-boat northeast of Scotland. He also noted that the British were more interested in the upcoming U.S. Congressional elections than they had been in the past, as any isolationist gains could upset the flow of arms and other supplies coming to the U.K., which would only further hurt the British war against Germany. Murrow concluded his report by noting that many in the U.K. were much happier with the peace brought about by the Hess Agreement than they were with the current state of affairs.
