    She was great....thank God she will not have to witness the destruction of the nation that begins in January of 2017

    Yes she was....however I would not shed tears for Wolf Blitzer, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly or Lou Dobbs if they were struck with cancer.

    Will miss her too. Relatively young as well. Sad to learn of her passing.

    Soft spoken and only covered real fact based news without spin, sadly there's no place for that in today's turbulent and bombastic news cycles.

    I think she would work harder than ever.
    People like Gwen make others realize the problems they are creating.

    She was a great asset for PBS. A fine person.

    She was an often guest on CBS and NBC too.
    ABC also devoted at least 2 min for her, as they knew her well too.

    She transcended networks

    We can't afford the loss of such a classy lady in this business. Hers is a loss that will definitely be felt, as I do not see anybody that can fill her shoes in the immediate future.
