The journalist Ben Bradlee, the editor that took The Washington Post to the summit, dies

By Maria Jose Izquierdo/// If Ben Bradlee shouted “Stop the machines” when Bob Kennedy was murdered, he also promoted new technologies: The Washington Post used its most reputed former editor, 89 years, for advertising a new application for the iPad in a video humorously.

 


On Tuesday October 21, 2014, Ben Bradlee, the journalist who published the Pentagon Papers and directed coverage that brought down a president of the United States (Wattergate, Nixon) died at the age of 93 years at his home in Washington DC.

Paradoxically it might seem, neither the old nor the new technologies led to “The Washington Post“at the top of world journalism and neither the old nor the new technologies turned Brandlee into a one of the professionals most quoted, respected and admired during two centuries.

The tools that brought fame to Bradlee Benjamin Crowninshield (Boston, 1921 Washington DC 2014) were its inflexibility in the search for truth and professional awareness.  

“He had the courage of a soldier”, said the journalists of Watergate case, Carl Berstein and Bob Woodward, about their editor.

This is the way he was. He had pride in his journalistic profession. It was not by accident that he wrote on his life (“A good life”, 1996). Good life, Bren Bradlee. Heavens, temble…!
