They say history has a way of repeating itself and the following video clips may help to bring this message home.

"See it Now" was an American news magazine and documentary series introduced to viewers by CBS TV. The program aired from 1951 to 1958. It was created and anchored by Edward R. Murrow. Instead of listing his many awards and multiple achievements, we will point out the following quotes and present the following images.

" We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it. We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; credible we must be truthful. " Ed Murrow.

Mr. Murrow warned TV viewers not to confuse dissent with disloyalty. You can watch it now, or lament it later.
