CBS VS CONGRESS
Congress launches the most flagrant political assault on the media and the First Amendment (âCongress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press...â) in American post-colonial historyâeffectively a political coup attempt to wrest control over the broadcast media and ultimately secure it firmly in the hands of government overseers. Enraged by what many in Congress consider the mediaâs pervasive influence and believing television simply to be too powerful a tool to be entrusted to anyone beyond their immediate and direct control, Congress targets then-dominant CBS and its president Dr. Frank Stanton. The coup conspiracy reaches the highest levels of government, yet Stanton fights what often seems even to him to be a futile, down-to-the-wire struggle against overwhelming odds, to preserve a free broadcast press. Should he not prevail, a free media as we know it today will cease to exist in this country. A true story.
