Daniel Schorr, 1916-2010
From NPR: news that longtime news analyst and commentator Daniel Schorr has died at the age of 93. More here from the New York Times, which has a lengthy obituary.
Mr. Schorr was famous not just for that distinctive and authoritative voice, but for his appearance on the Nixon White House "enemies list." As the news broke, and as he continued to cover Watergate and fallout from that story, he seemed unperturbed. He continued working as a journalist, at CBS, then as CNN's first reporter (recruited by Ted Turner) and ultimately at NPR.
