Don Hewitt, R.I.P. Aug. 19, 2009

Another great, this time the executive producer of CBS, has passed away. Don Hewitt, recognized as the "father of modern television news and the creator of the medium's most successful broadcast, "60 Minutes"", passed away at 86 years young on August 19, 2009. His 60 years in journalism led him to direct legends such as Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite, often "using a playbook he had to write himself."
