Robert Pierpoint, a CBS Newsman whose coverage of six presidents made him one of the longest-serving White House correspondents and whose reports from the front lines in Korea were among the first for television to focus on the individual soldier, died Saturday after complications related to hip surgery. He was 86 and lived in Santa Barbara, Calif.

I remember him. He came from an era when news was a bit more objective. not the blatant azz kissing of presidents that we have now.
Rest in peace.
Anyone have any suggestions for a good, quick, Kosher meal this evening? And please.....no lox and bagels. That was breakfast!
You are NOT the only conservative Jew in America.
The 70's were a bit rough but by the end even the Liberals reporting clearly considered Carter an incompetent. The 80's were tolerable because the overt anti-Reagan drumbeat was drowned out by the object's immense likability and success. Then the 90's came along with three "C's" that began making television news unwatchable ... CNN, the perky yet poisonous Ms. Couric, and the Clinton-Cult.
Since then Network News has become a visual combination of Pravda and Saturday Night Wrestling, FOX included.
Like all of us he now is a leaf on a tree.
W/ regard your tagline: HELLO! I’m the other conservative Jew. No, seriously, there are a lot, like at least 20 conservative Jews in America and all of them are right here on FR.
“He covered Watergate, the Pentagon Papers and the resignation of Richard Nixon, as part of a “Murder’s Row” of reporting talent out of the CBS News Washington Bureau that included Lesley Stahl, Roger Mudd, Bob Schieffer and Ed Bradley.”
Someone should ask “Kenneth” what it is like to be a nonperson courtesy of the CBS Politburo. Gunga Dan is still toxic. LMAO.
That often means he developed an infection in the hospital.
Or perhaps he got a blood clot from the surgery and that was the end of him.
Because as Thomas Jefferson said, “Whenever I see three doctors gathered together, I look overhead to see if the buzzards are circling.”
That is the first I have heard of that Jefferson comment. Thanks.
