Edwin Newman, 1919-2010

Edwin Newman, TV Journalist, Dies [NYT]

Sorry, if I die, I want my death reported IMMEDIATELY.

I think it would be cool to have my death reported PREMATURELY. Think of the fun!

@Tommmcatt Cannot Be Arsed To Think About Sharon Angle: Buy it’s already been done, Catt. You’re a trailblazer. I think we should come up with some other way to disseminate misinformation about you.

TJ/ Some of my students are now calling me “Mistress JNOV.” Um…yeah. I told them I’m bringing my whip to the next class, but not the boots.

@JNOV: But the corset – you have to do the corset.

And, may I say, Newman was one of a dying breed – a real journalist. Interview people, be on the scene, add a bit of context, and report. A lost art.
