November 9, 2006
Press Release

I am very saddened to learn about the passing of Ed Bradley. We have lost one of the most distinguished journalists of our time. I knew Ed Bradley. It was just wonderful to be in his presence. He was so gifted, so talented, so smart, so wise. He could be very serious on one hand, but incredibly funny on the other.

Through his incisive investigative journalism as a correspondent for 60 Minutes, he made a lasting contribution to our democracy, covering the Vietnam War, the White House, corporate America, and documenting the great human conflicts of our time. I feel so blessed to have known him. He will be deeply missed.
