Oh wow.
Again he was an amazing journalist. RIP.

He was the coolest, sexist Journalist on TV, especially when he started sporting the earing!

Re: Sad Breaking News:CBS's Ed Bradley has

Rest in Peace.




The earring was a bit much wasn't it.

He made some of the current CBS reporters look
unqualified, and out of his league.


The old guard 60 Minutes, in their heyday, they were
great.

Today..........a different story.





I'm sure 60 Minutes and CBS will give him a great
retrospective. His interview classic with Aretha Franklin
was great.

He was definitly sexy and I also loved the earring. Only he could have gotten away with it. Anyway, my favorite interview was with Muhammad Ali and Muhammad's wife.

Re: Sad Breaking News:CBS's Ed Bradley has

(from cbsnews.com)

What was Bradley's secret to getting such renowned stories? CBS News chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer said it was all in his style.

"Ed knew everyone from Jimmy Carter to Jimmy Buffett. He made people comfortable. He wasn't the bulldog type reporter like Mike Wallace," Schieffer said. "He set people at ease and got them to talk. Sometimes that was in their interest and sometimes it wasn't. But he was like Columbo, who had that disarming style and the knack of getting that last answer out of someone."

Yes he was sexy. I didn't even know he was sick. Very sad indeed.
