Clooney, Small Have a ‘Good Night’ at the Newseum
WASHINGTON — George Clooney brought star power and charm to the second installment of the "Reel Journalism With Nick Clooney" film series at the Newseum on Monday, Jan. 26, 2009, with a sold-out screening of "Good Night, and Good Luck." The film series, co-produced by the Newseum and the American University School of Communication, is hosted by veteran newsman and American University journalist-in-residence Nick Clooney.
A freewheeling, humorous and insightful panel discussion with Nick, son George and Bill Small, chairman of news and documentary Emmys at the National Television Academy and the author of two award-winning books on the media, preceded the film screening.
The “Reel Journalism” series presents sometimes accurate and sometimes questionable depictions of journalists and journalism. It also provides a forum for discussing the important role of the press in a democratic society.
Upcoming movies include “Citizen Kane” and “All the President’s Men.”
