Studs Terkel

Ed here--mediabistro offered a Studs Terkel quote this morning that demonstrates how true and brave and irreplacable the man was.

In 1997, Studs Terkel blamed journalists and writers for sugar-coating the first Gulf War: "Our most prestigious journals found the horrors visited by our smart bombs upon Iraqi women and kids news not fit to print. It is no secret that our media -- TV and radio, owned by the same Big Boys, compounding the obscenity -- played the role of bat boys to the sluggers of the Pentagon."
