Though it was particularly difficult for him to name the most profound moment in his career, he highlighted the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as one of these moments.

“I was a reporter for a afternoon newspaper in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963 when President Kennedy was assassinated. As a reporter I learned once and for all, in an incredibly dramatic way, what one event can do and how one event can lead to so many different changes. The death of John F. Kennedy sent off a chain of events that changed our country and changed many things about it,” he said.
