CBS Views the Press




CBS Views the Press
Winner 1947 | CBS Radio

If the F.C.C. criticizes radio, the newspapers print the story with glee. But if radio has the temerity to criticize the Press, each newspaper looks the other way and says, “Who, me?” The Peabody Committee wishes to congratulate the Columbia Broadcasting System for its weekly commentary, CBS Views the Press, a program of hard-hitting, frequently witty and always stimulating criticism of the New York press. Our award signalizes the skillful commentary of Don Hollenbeck, the courage of Edward R. Murrow who conceived the program, and the CBS news staff for consistently high performance.
