Overview

Peerless commentary on recent politics and history from one of the preeminent reporters of our time?now with new material

AN INSTITUTION at CBS for decades and a twenty-year mainstay of NPR, Daniel Schorr is a legend in journalism. Come to Think of It collects in one place, for the first time, Schorr's observations on politics and American life during the past two decades. His essays reveal his mastery of pithy, get-to-the-point analysis, and his experience gives him an authority and range that permeate every page. In these essays we get his on-the-spot reactions to the major and minor events around the turn of the millennium?from the shock of 9/11 to the mainstreaming of Yiddish. Come to Think of It is an unparalleled account of political analysis and personal memory.

What People are saying about this

William Safire
One of the great broadcast journalists of our time—scrupulously honest, historically fair, fearless, forthright, and sometimes deliciously insightful.

A brilliant collection of Schorr's best broadcasts. Great listening, now even better reading.
Judith Viorst
When there's something to tell, nobody tells it better than Daniel Schorr.

Meet the Author

Daniel Schorr is currently a senior news analyst for NPR. He has won three Emmys, decorations from European heads of state, a Peabody award for “a lifetime of uncompromising reporting of the highest integrity,” awards from civil liberties groups, and the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Golden Baton for “Exceptional Contributions to Radio and Television Reporting and Commentary,” the most prestigious award in broadcasting.

After serving in World War II in Army intelligence, he wrote for the Christian Science Monitor and the New York Times before moving to CBS in 1953. He covered Khrushchev, Castro, the building of the Berlin Wall, then returned to Washington. His coverage of Watergate landed him on Nixon’s “enemies list.” He resigned from CBS in 1976 when asked to disclose the source of a suppressed intelligence report. In 1979 he helped Ted Turner creat CNN, and since 1985 has worked primarily for NPR.
