Judging a man by his enemies

Journalist Daniel Schorr died today at age 93.

Among the list of those who wouldn't be saddened much by the news: The FBI (who never found out Schorr's source for a leaked House intelligence committee report on CIA misdeeds); CBS (who dumped him rather than support him over the leaked report); and the ghosts of Sen. Barry Goldwater (who wanted him fired from CNN) and President Richard Nixon (who put Schorr on his "enemies list," a point of pride Schorr took with him to his grave).
