RIP Ben Bradlee

Watergate

Ben Bradlee and Bob Woodward

Very sad to hear that Ben Bradlee has died. He was an icon of journalism and one of the gutsiest editors to ever have lived.

Over  the next few days, expect much to be said about how journalism and newspapers are no longer what they were in the 1970s and 1980s, much of it true, unfortunately.

The Washington Post obit is here and it’s fantastic.
