Rest in Peace, Morley Safer


Morley Safer, legendary CBS News reporter and longtime 60 Minutes anchor has passed away at age 84. Morley was born in Canada and got his start in Canadian media. CBS News hired him as a London correspondent. He quickly moved up at CBS, getting asked to open up the CBS office in Saigon. He angered President Lyndon Johnson who accused him of being a communist. Safer would join 60 Minutes in 1970, a place he would stay until just last week.
