Mr. Rooney Goes to Washington (CBS)




Mr. Rooney Goes to Washington
Winner 1975 | CBS News

Written and narrated by Andy Rooney, the program was distinguished by a lightness of touch and mood, a Rooney specialty, which deceptively cloaked the serious nature of one reporter-citizen’s investigation into one of the nation’s continuing and far-reaching problems of government.
