Yesterday it was political columnist, conservative, and tv host Robert Novak who died at the age of 78 from the effects of brain cancer.

Today its being reported that a more respected and dare I say pioneering figure Don Hewitt,a producer-director of the CBS Evening newscast in televisions infantacy and who later went on to become the mind and Executive producer behind the tv news weekly magazine 60 Minutes in 1968, until 2004 has died at the age of 86. The generation of sterling pioneering giants in the field of television journalism still alive seems to be sadly growing smaller and smaller.
