„Su principal logro [el del senador Joseph McCarthy] ha sido el de confundir a la opinión pública (public mind), entre las amenazas internas y externas del comunismo. No debemos confundir disenso con deslealtad. Debemos recordar siempre que una acusación no es una prueba y que una condena depende de la evidencia y del debido proceso de la ley. No caminaremos con miedo, el uno del otro. No seremos conducidos por el miedo hacia una era de sinrazón, si cavamos profundo en nuestra historia y nuestra doctrina y recordamos que no descendemos de hombres temerosos - no de hombres que temían escribir, hablar, asociarse y defender causas que eran, por el momento, impopulares. Este no es el tiempo para que los hombres que se oponen a los métodos del senador McCarthy se mantengan en silencio, o para aquellos que los aprueban. Podemos negar nuestra herencia y nuestra historia, pero no podemos evadir la responsabilidad por el resultado. No hay forma para un ciudadano de una república de abdicar de sus responsabilidades. Como nación hemos recibido nuestra plena herencia a una edad tierna. Nosotros proclamamos ser, y de verdad lo somos, los defensores de la libertad, dondequiera que ésta continúe existiendo en el mundo, pero no podemos defender la libertad en el exterior mediante su abandono en casa. Las acciones del joven senador de Wisconsin han causado alarma y consternación entre nuestros aliados en el extranjero, y dado un considerable confort a nuestros enemigos. ¿Y de quién es la falla? En realidad no es suya. Él no creó esta situación de miedo; él meramente la explotó - y más bien exitosamente. Casio estaba en lo cierto: 'La falla, querido Bruto, no está en nuestras estrellas, sino en nosotros mismos'”.“

„No one familiar with the history of this country can deny that congressional committees are useful. It is necessary to investigate before legislating, but the line between investigating and persecuting is a very fine one and the junior Senator from Wisconsin has stepped over it repeatedly.“

— Edward R. Murrow
Context: No one familiar with the history of this country can deny that congressional committees are useful. It is necessary to investigate before legislating, but the line between investigating and persecuting is a very fine one and the junior Senator from Wisconsin has stepped over it repeatedly. His primary achievement has been in confusing the public mind as between the internal and the external threats of communism. We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men — not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular. This is no time for men who oppose Senator McCarthy's methods to keep silent, or for those who approve. We can deny our heritage and our history, but we cannot escape responsibility for the result. There is no way for a citizen of a republic to abdicate his responsibilities. As a nation we have come into our full inheritance at a tender age. We proclaim ourselves, as indeed we are, the defenders of freedom, wherever it continues to exist in the world, but we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. The actions of the junior Senator from Wisconsin have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad, and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his. He didn't create this situation of fear; he merely exploited it — and rather successfully. Cassius was right. "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves." Good night, and good luck. The reference to Cassius is that of the character in William Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar.

„This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and even it can inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it's nothing but wires and lights in a box. There is a great and perhaps decisive battle to be fought against ignorance, intolerance and indifference. This weapon of television could be useful.“

Context: This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and even it can inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it's nothing but wires and lights in a box. There is a great and perhaps decisive battle to be fought against ignorance, intolerance and indifference. This weapon of television could be useful. Stonewall Jackson, who knew something about the use of weapons, is reported to have said, "When war comes, you must draw the sword and throw away the scabbard." The trouble with television is that it is rusting in the scabbard during a battle for survival.

„Others have their share, often far bigger than mine. This has helped me to see my own in truer perspective: and in learning how others have faced their problems — this has given me fresh ideas about how to tackle mine.“

— Edward R. Murrow
Context: This reporter’s beliefs are in a state of flux. It would be easier to enumerate the items I do not believe in, than the other way around. And yet in talking to people, in listening to them, I have come to realize that I don’t have a monopoly on the world’s problems. Others have their share, often far bigger than mine. This has helped me to see my own in truer perspective: and in learning how others have faced their problems — this has given me fresh ideas about how to tackle mine.

„Perhaps we should warn you that there is one thing you won’t read, and that is a pat answer for the problems of life.“

— Edward R. Murrow
Context: Perhaps we should warn you that there is one thing you won’t read, and that is a pat answer for the problems of life. We don’t pretend to make this a spiritual or psychological patent-medicine chest where one can come and get a pill of wisdom, to be swallowed like an aspirin, to banish the headaches of our times.

„This just might do nobody any good. At the end of this discourse a few people may accuse this reporter of fouling his own comfortable nest, and your organization may be accused of having given hospitality to heretical and even dangerous thoughts.“

— Edward R. Murrow
Context: This just might do nobody any good. At the end of this discourse a few people may accuse this reporter of fouling his own comfortable nest, and your organization may be accused of having given hospitality to heretical and even dangerous thoughts. But the elaborate structure of networks, advertising agencies and sponsors will not be shaken or altered. It is my desire, if not my duty, to try to talk to you journeymen with some candor about what is happening to radio and television.

„It is not necessary to remind you of the fact that your voice, amplified to the degree where it reaches from one end of the country to the other, does not confer upon you greater wisdom than when your voice reached only from one end of the bar to the other. All of these things you know.“

— Edward R. Murrow
Context: I have no technical advice or counsel to offer those of you who labor in this vineyard, the one that produces words and pictures. You will, I am sure, forgive me for not telling you that instruments with which you work are miraculous, that your responsibility is unprecedented or that your aspirations are frequently frustrated. It is not necessary to remind you of the fact that your voice, amplified to the degree where it reaches from one end of the country to the other, does not confer upon you greater wisdom than when your voice reached only from one end of the bar to the other. All of these things you know. A variant of part of this statement is often quoted: Just because your voice reaches halfway around the world doesn't mean you are wiser than when it reached only to the end of the bar.

„The politician is...trained in the art of inexactitude.“

— Edward R. Murrow
Context: The politician is... trained in the art of inexactitude. His words tend to be blunt or rounded, because if they have a cutting edge they may later return to wound him. Address at London Guildhall (19 October 1959)

„This I Believe — by that name, we present the personal philosophies of thoughtful men and women in all walks of life.“

— Edward R. Murrow
Context: This I Believe — by that name, we present the personal philosophies of thoughtful men and women in all walks of life. In this brief space, a banker or a butcher, a painter or a social worker, people of all kinds who need have nothing more in common than integrity, a real honesty, will write about the rules they live by, the things they have found to be the basic values in their lives.

„Do not be deluded into believing that the titular heads of the networks control what appears on their networks. They all have better taste.“

— Edward R. Murrow
Context: Do not be deluded into believing that the titular heads of the networks control what appears on their networks. They all have better taste. All are responsible to stockholders, and in my experience all are honorable men. But they must schedule what they can sell in the public market.
