R.I.P. Mr. Newman. Like Walter Cronkite, Peter Jennings, Elmer Davis (though before your time), Chet Huntley, David Brinkley and Edward R. Murrow you were intelligent, communicative and thought provoking. You reported the news with fact, tact and neutrality.

Today's talking heads should have paid attention.

What a loss. In today's monosyllabic-illiterate world, Mr. Newman wouldn't be understood by the majority - his time had passed.

What we have here is a failure to communicate.
All the Jewish mouthpieces are dying off, come on Matt Lauer, time to step up and fill those Hebrew shoes!
