Richard Blystone: The Poet Laureate Of Network News

Submitted by • April 19, 2018 edition.cnn.com

From the killing fields in Cambodia to the burning oil fields of Kuwait -- if the narrative of news had a poet laureate, it was Richard Blystone.

Richard passed away earlier this week, aged 81.
A giant of his generation, he was humble, witty and serious. Warm with his colleagues, tough on tyrants.
