John Palmer 1935 - 2013

August 4th, 2013
In this age in which news is often conflated with entertainment and job hopping is de rigueur,  John Palmer was the anomaly.  He reported for NBC for over 40 years.  He covered the White House, the Middle East and reported on some of the most important stories of our time.  

Back in March of 1997, John visited the Napa Valley and we had the chance to chat a bit about Washington in the Clinton years.  John was appalled by the way money had taken over politics, as well as the insular nature of Washington.  

He was a great reporter, who always defined the best of broadcast journalism.  

Here is seven minutes of that conversation from 16 years ago.
