The news analysis and commentary of Eric Sevareid are marked by a rich background of knowledge, philosophical detachment, analysis rather than advocacy, recognition of the intelligence of his listening and viewing public, and a superior command of language—all qualities which have earned him the accolade of “Elder Statesman of Electronic Journalism.” In recognition, a George Foster Peabody Award for outstanding news analysis and commentary during 1967.
