Daniel Schorr, Dead at 93

The senior news analyst for NPR and Washington veteran journalist has died.

Schorr died Friday at a Washington hospital after a brief illness, said Anna Christopher, a spokeswoman for National Public Radio, where Schorr continued to work as a senior news analyst and commentator.

Schorr’s career of more than six decades spanned the spectrum of journalism — beginning in print, then moving to television where he spent 23 years with CBS News and ending with NPR. He also wrote several books, including his memoir, "Staying Tuned: A Life in Journalism."

CBS Compares Bush to Ahmadinejad

CBSNews.com has published a report from The New Republic’s Laura Secor who compares the dictator of Iran to George W. Bush.

Believe it.

Iran’s Holocaust denier and “wipe Israel off the map” sponsor of terrorism is evil incarnate, and equal only to the 43rd President of the United States.

Outrageous.
