Daniel Schorr

I was a child when Daniel Schorr cut his teeth as a seminal and uncompromising journalist. His fearlessness in covering the Watergate debacle of the Nixon presidency earned him meritorious praise from colleagues as well as the ire of certain network television executives and powerful political figures. Daniel Schorr passed away recently at the grand age of 93. His powers of perception, journalist's instincts, and intellectual prowess remained razor sharp to the very end. His voice had been a consistent part of my life since at least the late eighties and I will miss it.
