The Murrow Boys (Murrow's Boys)

Censorship and foreign government policies
Censorship was really important reporting in Europe because not all countries have equivalent press laws and regulations. The reporters often times hid discrete meanings or reported things which required the audience to read between the lines. At least 3 censors from the Foreign Office, the Propaganda Ministry, and the Military had to stamp their approval on the reports from the foreign correspondents.
Breckinridge subtly got her point across and through the censors when she reported on the socialist newspaper, Voelkische Beobachter "censors struck out one of her sentences about Hitler's and other's financial investment in the newspaper. But the censors left her last phrase uncorrected: 'The motto of this important official paper is Freedom and Bread. There is still bread.'"
"This is London"
Edward R. Murrow's iconic greeting, he became popular throughout the war, rising to celebrity status, reporting from London (until 1946) In 1945, Murrow became the vice president of the network and head of CBS broadcast news. After the war, he was one of the first reporters to cover the newly liberated Buchenwald concentration camp in April, 1945.
