R.I.P. Ed Bradley

Ed Bradley will be missed. We've replaced true journalists with ditzy talking newsreaders, and as this era slides to a close, we should all take a minute to reflect that we've created this media vacuum.

Bradley was a class act, a smart journalist who knew the importance of not being bigger than the story. In these times of shameful shrieking nutjobs like Bill O'Reilly, we should be reminded that you didn't always have to take a Xanax before watching news stories.

Today we have news personalities; Ed Bradley had more personality than any of them, and more integrity than all of them.
