A shame. Bradley was an unabashed liberal, to be sure, and the ear ring was a little funny but he was a pro and a genuinely likeable fellow.

    And to think he was the young one…

    Sorry, James, but I don’t think I’m going to be shedding any tears on this one. His being a liberal aside, he’s somebody you made himself a fairly large name by spreading propaganda from Vietnam under the guise of ‘news’. Remember, BRadley was feeding Kronkite, and most will know what a moonbat Kronkite was, even then.

    I have an extraordinary dislike for the man, for much the same reason that I have an extraordinary dislike of John Kerry. Ed Bradley succeeded in making a name for himself by a way of damaging both his country, and his chosen craft.

    Sorry, what it is. I’m sure he had many positive qualities, but they were overwhelmed by the points I’ve mentioned, here.
