Journalist Daniel Schorr

Daniel Schorr was a distinguished journalist whose career spanned more than six decades, marked by fearless reporting, uncompromising integrity, and a commitment to speaking truth to power. He was born on August 31, 1916, in New York City, and his journey into journalism began during his college years at City College of New York, where he served as editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper. After graduating in 1939, Schorr began his professional journalism career at the New York Times, where he worked as a foreign correspondent. His reporting took him to Europe during World War II, where he covered some of the most significant events of the era, including the Nuremberg Trials and the establishment of the United Nations.

In 1953, Schorr joined CBS News as a foreign correspondent, eventually becoming the network's chief diplomatic correspondent. He reported from around the world, covering major events such as the Vietnam War, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the Watergate scandal. Schorr gained a reputation for his incisive reporting and willingness to challenge authority, even when it meant facing backlash from those in power. His coverage of Watergate, in particular, earned him praise for his tenacity and dedication to uncovering the truth behind the scandal that ultimately led to President Richard Nixon's resignation.

Throughout his career, Schorr was not afraid to speak out against injustices and abuses of power, earning him both admirers and detractors. He remained a steadfast advocate for press freedom and journalistic integrity, always striving to hold those in positions of power accountable. In 1976, Schorr joined National Public Radio (NPR) as a senior news analyst, where he continued to provide insightful commentary on national and international affairs until his retirement in 2010. He received numerous awards and honors for his contributions to journalism, including three Emmy Awards and a George Polk Award for his reporting. Daniel Schorr passed away on July 23, 2010, at the age of 93, leaving behind a legacy of courageous journalism and a commitment to upholding the principles of a free press. He remains an inspiration to journalists around the world who strive to follow in his footsteps and uphold the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in their work.
