Edward R. Murrow was a legendary CBS news broadcaster who was the first to appear on a television newscast (the show was called See It Now). He represents the standard for integrity in broadcast journalism, so when a network does something unethical, incompetent or stupid relating to it's news division, it is often met with commentary that "Edward R. Murrow is turning over in his grave." As news divisions at major networks suffered budget cuts in favor of entertainment, Murrow has turned over quite often: a producer at CBS was fired when he interrupted the show CSI: New York with news that Yasser Arafat died, the show 60 Minutes relied on fake documents to report on president Bush's National Guard duty, and some stations aired promotional material supplied by the Bush administration as actual news. Of course, Murrow cannot literally turn over in his grave - he was cremated.
