      > Oct. 18 at the Nebraska Book Festival in downtown Lincoln.
      > According to biographer Loren Ghiglione, Hollenbeck was a
      > "pioneering press critic who has been portrayed as a
      > one-dimensional figure, a victim of McCarthyism who killed
      > himself after being red-baited. But he was a fascinatingly
      > complex human being - an impulsive, compulsive truth-teller
      > who survived alcoholism, his mother's suicide, three
      > failed marriages, and firings by NBC and ABC to become a
      > symbol of the best of broadcast journalism."
      > A fictionalized Hollenbeck figures in George Clooney's
      > 2005 movie, "GoodNight, and Good Luck." Clips of
      > the film will be shown and discussed during the free 3 p.m.
      > session at the Museum of Nebraska History, 15th and P
      > streets.
      > Ghiglione will describe Hollenbeck's life in Lincoln
      > and Omaha, his work as a broadcast journalist for CBS after
      > World War II and his experiences as a reporter in the Joe
      > McCarthy era. Ghiglione is the author of "CBS's Don
      > Hollenbeck: An Honest Reporter in the Age of
      > McCarthyism." His latest book, "Radio's
      > Revolution: DonHollenbeck's CBS Views the Press," a
      > collection of transcripts of Hollenbeck's best radio
      > broadcasts, will be published in November by the University
      > of Nebraska Press.
      > "A similar politics of fear is alive and well in the
      > era of terrorism." , Ghiglione said. " We can
      > learn from Hollenbeck's life the cost and courage of
      > being an honest reporter in an age of partisan politics and
