From CBS this afternoon....

Ed Bradley's death took us by surprise yesterday. Sunday we'll remember him during a special hour of 60 Minutes devoted to the life and work of this tremendously talented journalist and dear friend. Steve Kroft speaks to Ed's closest friends. They share their rich experiences of him off camera to reveal the kind, generous lover of life that he was for those millions who only knew him on camera. Morley Safer reviews and puts into context the contribution he made to 60 Minutes with his considerable and distinctive body of work. Lesley Stahl looks back on Ed's rise from a tough Philadelphia neighborhood to the heights of journalistic achievement. Andy Rooney also contributes a special remembrance of Ed.

Don't expect the hour to be maudlin or melancholy, because Ed wasn't. Expect to see an hour of television as full-bodied, humorous and classy as the man it is dedicated to. So please join us to celebrate a man whose work leaves a large footprint on the television landscape and whose passing a gaping whole in the hearts of his friends and fans.

MANIFESTO

Don't think for me. Don't assume what I want to hear or read. Give me facts. Give me reasons. But not yours. Bring me debate. Enlighten me. Today, accountability is masked behind anonymity; bylines are hidden by zeros and ones. Everyone publishes; everyone is "in the know." Ethics are non-existent. Speculation is king. The truth is masked and a hostage. Empowered by our minds, WE ARE THE FREAKSPEAKERS!
