Fans of the PBS Newshour will be saddened by the news of Jim Lehrer passing away today. My wife and I have been watching the News Hours since the days when it was called the MacNeil Lehrer Newshour. Then and now, it's probably the only TV news that offers unbiased, in depth coverage of current events. Lehrer retired some years ago, but he's largely responsible for the show's format.

RIP Jim Lehrer.
