I am sorry to hear about Mr. Schorr. GOD Bless him and may he rest in peace.

He had such a refreshing, strong and wise voice, very distinctive. I will miss his voice and immense knowledge of politics and society in general.

Journalism without Mr. Daniel Schorr will be like Heaven without Archangel Michael. Mr. Daniel Schorr was indeed a warrior for truth.
