"60 Minutes" Ed Bradley Has Died

Very sad news in journalism...Ed Bradley, a key member of "60 Minutes", has died.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061109/...v/obit_bradley

His U2 segment on "60 Minutes" last year was beyond wonderful, and he had the gift of being able to report on hard news and lighter pieces like the U2 profile and do a fantastic job on each.

I'll always remember him as sipping cappucino underneath the Vertigo stage with Adam Clayton.

RIP.

Wow, I didn't even know he had cancer. That was certainly an unforgettable interview. He's done some really powerful stuff.

I agree, truly the last of his kind. He and his journalistic integrity will be missed.

Bye Mr Bradley, thank you for your work. RIP.
Or perhaps awaking into an alternate dimension America where full first-class citizenship.has been achieved for all Americans.

He was once on one of my favorite free-form DJ's shows, because besides the DJ talking about his work , they also BOTH were big fans of The Neville Brothers.

I'll only remember him from the Party Poker & U2 feature of 60 Minutes.

RIP

He seemed very fair, yet direct during interviews...the perfect combination in journalism.

RIP
