Don Hewitt, Who Created That Whole 'News Magazine On TeeVee' Thing, Has Died

News

The Summer of Celebrity/News Death continues! Don Hewitt, the guy who created famous old-people program60 Minutes, is dead at 86. He, like all people who died this summer and got obits in the NYT, is/was a legend. Legend of what, you ask? TeeVee! Before this guy, we hear, there was no such thing as the TeeVee News Magazine. We don't know if that's a good or bad thing -- well, on second thought, it was probably a bad thing. The television news killed the important newspaper industry, remember? And now look where we are!
