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.

(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.

RIP. Ed was great. He had a sexiness about him and a gentleness in his nature. He was my favorite journalist and I'll miss him. 60 minutes isn't the same without him.

Watched "A Tribute to Ed Bradley" on 60 minutes last night! :worship:
Really great stuff, I had no idea he was from West Philadelphia, he was close friends wth Jimmy Buffet, and soo much more. I thought the last episode of the year would be a "look back" type show on the whole year. I'm glad they devoted the whole hour to him. If you guys get a chance to watch it on re-run you have to see it!!!! :wavey:

Bradley was, by far, the best thing that ever happened to that virtual yellow rag dares-to-call-itself-journalism called 60 Minutes. I worked with him once, a long time ago, and I prefer to remember him on TV.
