Thanks for the Memories


| July 7, 2003


Alas, life won?t be the same without David Brinkley, writes Dennis Hans in a Liberal Slant essay. With Brinkley?s ?softball questions? and so-called ?wide range panels? featuring pundits stretching from the extreme right all the way to the moderate center, Hans could always count on This Week With David Brinkley to deliver the ?wide-range, no-holds barred, free-for all? that only occurs when staunch conservatives butt heads with lukewarm liberals. Most memorably, Brinkley provided Hans with ?a small fortune ? nearly $300? for the pleasure of satirizing his work. Not to mention a plethora of raucous memories for that other rabble-rouser, Sam Donaldson.
