'60 Minutes' correspondent Morley Safer dies
Thursday, May 19th 2016, 12:13 pm EDT

My whole adult life I trusted that he would speak the truth and give both sides of stories that merited it. I haven't found any specific COD but he retired just a couple of weeks ago. His last news cast was in March.

In addition to the 12 Emmys, Safer was honored with the Fred Friendly First Amendment Award from Quinnipiac College, special recognition from the Canadian Journalism Foundation, two Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards, two George Polk Memorial Awards, Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards First Prize for Domestic Television and the Radio/Television News Directors Association's highest honor, the Paul White Award, according to his CBS biography.

The French government recognized Safer with the Chévalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 1995.

Reincarnate fast Morley. We need your ninjaman self!

All sorts of young musicians passing. Rest in Peace :(
I believe in reincarnation so hopefully they'll come back soon. RIP Morley as well. I'm not a fan of television news but he was actually one of the good ones.

Yea we have a whole generation of newscaster personalities who are not journalists at all. I wouldn't say he is the last of a breed but the herd is getting very thin.
