A Dallas journalist recalls Jim Lehrer’s impact on her career — and life
Hear from some of the producers and correspondents who worked alongside Jim Lehrer for decades and at the earliest stages of our program. Jim, one of our founders, passed away last week at the age of 85.
Jim Lehrer set a standard for fairness. He was not on perpetual gaffe patrol, trying to get a politician to blurt out something he/she didn’t mean to say. He was trying to find out what people meant to say, and what they actually stood for.
Oh no.... Jim Lehrer has passed away. What a loss. A wonderful man and superb journalist.
I wish Jim Lehrer moderated Twitter so we could all ignore the character limit.
