Thread Name: Bob Edwards removed from Morning Edition
Subject: RE: Bob Edwards removed from Morning Edition
Listening to Bob Edwards, and reading his incredibly classy words angers me even more.

His loyalty to the organization he helped build shows remarkable character. He sounds so blindsided, so shocked. I think everyone has been through a betrayal, but to have it happen in public, in such a shocking manner, is dispicable. How does he make sense of it?

I have yet to hear of a SINGLE person who is applauding this move. Being named senior correspondant, forced to watch someone younger and less talented take his baby, seems more like a way to get rid of him and appease listeners than actually making anything better. Shame on those too cowardly to step forward and tell us the real reasons. Is Bob a tad too old for today's 18-24 year olds? Perhaps NPR can hire itself a "morning zoo", complete with stunts and obscenities.
