Okay... So, for a long time (when I was but a small child), I thought that Daniel Schorr was just a longtime NPR reporter. That is until I was sternly told that this was a genuine journalistic icon, who made started with CBS in the Edward R. Murrow days, and earned a place on Nixon's enemies list for his coverage of Watergate. Here's the other thing about him — he's so charming and still incisive that it's hard to believe he's 91. He has a new book out, and since he and Neal are old friends (Schorr was the first host of TOTN! When it was still untitled, of course), we asked him to come by and reminisce. This hour is simply a New Years gift to you — from us. Enjoy.
