Today* is Daniel Schorr‘s ninety-first birthday.
We need more voices like his. We need more of OUR voices to be like his (see my previous post). Willing to speak up when it can make a difference, willing to speak truth to power. In his NPR bio Schorr is described as “the last of Edward R. Murrow’s legendary CBS team still fully active in journalism.” Where (or who, I suppose) are the voices for our time?
*Well, yesterday, actually. Darned GMT.
