A giant of American journalism, former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, has died at age 93. VOA’s Michael Bowman reports that Bradlee played a critical role in the Post’s legal battle to publish secret U.S. documents about the Vietnam War, and oversaw the newspaper’s groundbreaking probe of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon in 1974.
