It makes me feel old that I can remember Douglas Edwards and Eric Sevareid, still on CBS in the late 1970’s.

I liked the Admiral commercials. They promised a cornucopia of consumer goodies once the war was won. But it is interesting; with today’s bottom-line minded corporate execs, would Admiral even have spent money sponsoring a newscast if they weren’t getting a return?

I also wonder if radio, and now television, has changed the way we speak. Although you cannot really tell from this broadcast; the servicemen being “interviewed” are clearly reading from censor-approved scripts.

I don’t remember Douglas Edwards but I do remember Eric Sevaried...as a left-wing commie.
