Personal Quote:

I have an old-fashioned view that news is not a commodity. News is information that's required in a democratic society, and Thomas Jefferson said a democracy is dependent on an informed citizenry. That sounds corny, but I don't care whether it sounds corny or not. It's the truth.

Trivia:

At WETA-TV, based in Virginia, he began covering the Watergate hearings in 1973 with fellow reporter Robert MacNeil. In 1975, they teamed up for "The MacNeil/Lehrer Report," a 30-minute broadcast that was eventually expanded to an hour. See more »
