Daniel Schorr's achievements and boundless energy in both radio and television add up to nearly half a century of clear and probing reporting. First at CBS News for 23 years, then as a member of the starting team at CNN, and now in his tenth year as National Public Radio's senior news analyst, Schorr has reported on the biggest issues and political scandals of our time. Recruited to CBS News in 1953 by Edward R. Murrow, Schorr has covered virtually every important beat: Europe, South America, the UN, and in domestic affairs, the McCarthy hearings, health care, education, antipoverty programs, the FBI, CIA, and the Iran-Contra affair. But if every reporter has a defining moment, Schorr's is Watergate, a story he covered thoroughly and relentlessly, earning him awards and prominence on President Nixon's famous "enemies list." Never shy of controversy; Daniel Schorr has stood tall for First Amendment rights -protecting sources, editorial independence, and the public's right to know.
