    I'll be watching. I really enjoyed his reporting, he was a groundbreaking with the Vietnam war coverage.

    They had the tribute last week. I just figured they'd talk about him some more tonight.

    Morley just rocked it under-the-radar for his whole career.

    I love that.

    Underrated journalist, imo. :grad:

    I used to love how many segments he (Morley) did involved him traveling to some "tiny little island" to show how much dough CBS could spend to send him to depict a far-flung Pacific or Caribbean place whose gubmint had recently (or perennially) been overthrown.

    RIP Mr Safer. For reals.

    Canadian guy...kills Draculas...gives the facts and NO fucks.
