The MMOB Daily Quote - Jim Lehrer

James Charles Lehrer (born May 19, 1934)

The subject of today's
MMOB Daily Quote is American news anchor and journalist Jim Lehrer. Best known as half of The MacNeil/Lehrer Report which ran from 1975 to 1995, when MacNeil left the program and it became know simply as The News Hour with Jim Lehrer.

So let's kick of this Tuesday with some quotes from Mr. Lehrer.

On going solo in 1995
“I now know how Abbot felt when Costello left, how Brinkley felt when Huntley left, how Sears felt when Roebuck left, and, of course, how Dan Rather felt when Connie left.”

“Those who know me know I won't hesitate to turn around and point someone out,”

“You want to see an angry person? ... Let me hear a cell phone go off.”

“I am now finding more and more journalists saying, 'It has taken a tragedy of enormous proportions, but maybe, maybe we are returning to our roots,' and those roots are in the business of information, not entertainment,”

Cheers! - Jason
