Washington Post's Ben Bradlee Passes From the Scene

Ben C. Bradlee, former executive editor of the Washington Post, has died at the age of 93. Mr. Bradlee joined the paper in 1965, brought on board by legendary owner Katharine Graham, and oversaw its growth into one of the leading newspapers in the United States. He was depicted on screen by actor Jason Robards in the film All the President's Men, the movie that dramatized WaPo reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's story of the Watergate scandal, first covered in the pages of the Washington Post.
