About this Item

xvi, [2], 382 pages. Index of Essays. Index. Front DJ flap creased. Signed by the author. Daniel Louis Schorr (August 31, 1916 - July 23, 2010) was an American journalist who covered world news for more than 60 years. He was most recently a Senior News Analyst for National Public Radio (NPR). Schorr won three Emmy Awards for his television journalism. In 1977, Schorr was hired by Reese Schonfeld as a White House correspondent for ITNA (Independent Television News Association), a news agency serving independent television news stations in the U.S. In 1979, Schonfeld and Ted Turner brought Schorr to Cable News Network (CNN), where he was the first on-camera employee hired. He reported news and delivered commentary and news analysis on the fledgling CNN. He then took the position as Senior News Analyst at NPR, a position he held for decades. In that position, he regularly commented on current events for programs including All Things Considered and Weekend Edition. A collection of Daniel Schorr's observations on politics and American life over the years from 1990 to the present. Peerless commentary on recent politics and history from one of the preeminent reporters of our time. An institution at CBS for decades and a twenty-year mainstay of NPR, Daniel Schorr is a legend in journalism. Come to Think of It collects in one place, for the first time, Schorr's observations on politics and American life during the past two decades. His essays reveal his mastery of pithy, get-to-the-point analysis, and his experience gives him an authority and range that permeate every page. In these essays we get his on-the-spot reactions to the major and minor events around the turn of the millennium, from the shock of 9/11 to the mainstreaming of Yiddish. Come to Think of It is an unparalleled account of political analysis and personal memory. Bookseller Inventory # 51033
