RIP Jim Lehrer. Just Don’t Take Your Style of Journalism With You.

Jim Lehrer got to be the kind of journalist we all should want, and most of us say we want, and many of us really don’t want.

Jim Lehrer on the ‘NewsHour.’

Jim Lehrer died Thursday, age 85, after a career mostly defined by 36 years as host or cohost of the various incarnations of the MacNeil-Lehrer Report, which in 1983 became PBS’s nightly news show.
