Retro Friday: Here's How Journalism Was Portrayed to Schoolchildren in 1967
This is a fun find: A 1967 filmstrip, produced by Encyclopaedia Britannica and the Washington Post Co., on how news is produced. The Post newsroom, as well as WTOP radio and WTOP-TV (now WUSA) are featured -- as is a young Sam Donaldson.
Oh, the idealism... and this film pre-dates Watergate, obviously.
