Ed Bradley died today of leukemia.
I grew up watching Ed Bradley. He made me want to know and understand things...to not stop at the surface, but to go deeper and form an opinion.
In an age of media spectacles and desperate stunts, Ed Bradley remained a journalist. Even when he pissed me off I had to admire that.
I will remember his presence…the measured tone and confident intellectualism...and the cool as hell jazz of him.
