      I had never heard that she was sick, but I did see her not too long ago on TV and thought that she was showing her age. I guess that is why. I always liked her and thought that she did a wonderful job explaining world events and politics. She was a class act. RIP

      She was one of the best. And I just read that she passed from complications of breast cancer. So another good one was taken from cancer. What a shame!

      She was a great influence on women who wanted to come into broadcasting, not just because she was a good journalist, but also because she spent her time promoting a non-catty environment so that female journalists could prop each other up. I think she will be very missed by quite a few women who saw her as a direct rolemodel.
