Director George Clooney and actor David Straithairn discuss their new movie "Good Night, and Good Luck," a movie chronicling the real-life conflict between CBS newsman Edward R. Murrow, played by Strathairn, and Sen. Joseph McCarthy during the early 1950s. During the CBS news program "See It Now," Murrow challenged McCarthy's tactics in orchestrating a campaign to expose and punish suspected Communists within the U.S. government. Clooney directed, co-wrote and plays the role of CBS producer Fred Friendly in the film.
