He always demonstrated to me the power of folksyness. The ability to allow people to be honest just by talking to them.

And let's not overlook his influence on younger African-American television journalists for whom he was a mentor.

Did anyone see 60 Minutes last night. The whole show as a great Ed Bradley tribute. Very good for something quickly thrown together.

I forgot to watch that. I hope it showed some of his famous stories and what stories won him the Emmy's.
