One of my favorites. He's left a legacy of changing journalism with his engaging investigations and down to earth reporting style which was instantly relatable for legions of his fans.

Noted. Thanks, Cal.
What a fantastic journalist we lost---I was unaware of much in that article. And, I was rather shocked when I learned that he had died.....only a few days after his final 60 Minutes. May he Rest In Peace.

He left his legacy and still doing what he loved right up to the bitter end. If only all of us could be so lucky to do that. Gentle journey to the Star Nation Morley.....and thanks.

I always liked Morley Safer. I grew up with him and he was always on the news when my Dad and I watched. It brings back a lot of memories to think of him.
