Ed Bradley: 1941-2006

Ed Bradley died today following a lengthy illness. Here’s an excerpt from an interview with Ed a few years ago:

Ed Bradley

I’ve heard the words “compassionate listener,” “soft-spoken,” “instinctive,” “intelligent,” “maverick,” and “trailblazer” used to describe you. How do you define Ed Bradley?

I guess all of those things fit.

How about “untalented and unaware of it” or “surprisingly full of himself”?

I’d have liked to buy him for what he was worth, sell him for what he thought he was worth and pocket the difference, which would have been quite a tidy sum.
