The Taser's Edge


Remembering Daniel Schorr

Hired by Edward R. Murrow in 1953 then worked at CBS in the era of Murrow and Cronkite, interviewed Nikita Krushchev in 1957, named on Nixon’s enemies list (which Schorr learned about as he read his name on it for the first time, on live TV), hired by CNN in 1979 before CNN launched in 1980, still did commentary for NPR (albeit less and less frequently for a while), Twittered regularly, dead today at 93 years old.  Talk about a 20th century mostly unknown icon.
